This bull-shaped smoker features a unique design that implements forced air induction, off-setting the flaws of the firebox design. Aside from the practical elements, the designer added some fun features. For example, you can blow smoke rings out of the bull’s nostrils by pumping the tail a few times. There’s also a smaller version in the shape of a wild boar.

2. A Truly One-of-a-Kind Smoker
