In Minecraft, a smoker is a craftable block that you can use to cook food. It requires a furnace and some wood as ingredients, so it’s very easy to make. While you can cook food in an oven, turning it into a smoker allows you to cook twice as fast. The furnace loses the ability to smelt ore, although ideally, you want access to both.
What You Need to Make a Smoker in Minecraft
To create a smoker, you will need to gather the following materials:
- A work table (requires four wooden planks)
- A furnace (requires eight cobblestones)
- Four logs or wooden blocks
How to make a smoker in Minecraft
After compiling the Minecraft smoker recipe, see how to make a smoker in Minecraft.
Make a worktable and a furnace, if you haven’t already, and gather at least four logs.
If you have already placed the furnace, you will need to extract it and place it in your inventory to turn it into a smoker.
Open the crafting table interface.
Place the furnace in the center slot of the worktable interface and surround it with four wooden blocks at the top, bottom left, and right.
You can use any combination of different types of logs, they don’t all have to be the same type, and you can also use wooden blocks taken from villages. The boards don’t work.
Move the smoker from the craft table interface to your inventory.
Place the smoker in a convenient location.
If you need to move the smoker in the future, use a pickaxe to remove it. If you use any other tools or fists to break the smoker, it will destroy it without the option to pick it up.
How to Find a Smoker in Minecraft
Although smokers are very easy to manufacture, you can find them already placed in randomly generated villages all over the world. If you find a butcher, you can take the smoker to use. See
how to find and capture a smoker in Minecraft.
Locate a village.
Search the village for a butcher NPC.
Use a pickaxe to scout the butcher’s smoker.
Walk over the broken smoker to get him.
Now you can put the smoker back in your home or anywhere else you like.
How to use a smoker in Minecraft
Smokers cook meat and function like furnaces in this regard, except they cook food twice as fast as a furnace. If you have a ready-made meat source, such as a sheep or cow farm, you can easily keep yourself fed by cooking the meat in a smoker. See how to use a smoker in Minecraft.
Create a smoker and place it in a convenient place.
Get raw meat from an animal such as a cow, pig or sheep.
Open the smoker interface.
Place the raw meat on the smoker’s interface.
Put fuel at the smoker interface.
Fuel that works in ovens also works in smokers, including wood and charcoal.
Wait for the food to cook and move it to your inventory.
Smokers can only process items that result in an edible product, such as raw meat. Items that are not edible once cooked, such as berries that turn into inedible dried fruit, cannot be processed in the smoker. Likewise, you cannot fuse metal in a smoker.
