If you are bored of cooking slow food in your furnace, it is time to upgrade to a smoker. Making a smoker in Minecraft is incredibly easy. You just need a furnace and a few planks. However, you will need to construct a furnace first if you do not have one. The smoker can be used to cook multiple kinds of meals. It cooks meat in less time compared to a furnace.
Let’s tell you how you can make a smoker from scratch without further delay.
- Furnace – 1
- Wooden Planks – 4
Collecting the Ingredients
Everything you need to make a smoker in Minecraft is in the inventory. If you do not have any of these, you will need Cobblestones to create the furnace. Cobblestones can be obtained from strongholds and villages. You can also find them in jungle temples.
Preparing the smoker requires placing the furnace and wooden planks in the 3×3 crafting grid. But what if you do not have a furnace? Let’s tell you how to create a furnace in Minecraft to make a smoker.
Preparing a Crafting Table
Firstly prepare a crafting table by converting three logs into wooden planks. Place the logs into the survival inventory grid to convert them into planks.
Preparing the Pixcake
The pixcake is essential to gather cobblestones for the furnace. To make a pixcake, you need to create sticks. You can craft sticks by placing two wooden blocks on top of each other in the grid.
Place planks in all three boxes of the top row.
Add the sticks to the two boxes of the middle row under the plank.
Move the pixcake to the inventory.
Now you can use this pixcake to gather cobblestones.
Preparing the Furnace
When you have collected your cobblestones from the sources mentioned above using the pixcake, it’s time to create the furnace.
Place the cobblestones in eight boxes leaving the middle one empty. The furnace will appear in the box on the right side.
Preparing the Smoker
Now the final step is using the furnace and wooden logs.
Place the furnace in the middle of the 3×3 crafting grid.
Add the wooden logs in a diamond shape, placing one in the middle of each row and column.
Make sure to leave the four corners empty.
Your smoker will appear in the box on the right.
Move it to the inventory.
How to Use a Smoker in Minecraft
You can enter the Smoker’s GUI by right-clicking on the smoker. It has two blocks on the left side of the arrow and one block on the right side.
- Add your raw food item to the top block on the left side.
- Put the fuel in the bottom block of the left side. Your smoker is set to start cooking.
- Keep an eye on the arrow to see the progress.
- Once the arrow is complete, you can see your food is cooked.
When the food is cooked, reap the rewards of smelting after removing the food from the block.
