    hey guy and girls,

    just wondering, i have a chinmey i put up on my roof, and i was wondering about the possibility of have some sort of small quantity of "smoke" rising from it. obviously i could have a little fan pushing it up from the chimney, but what sort of small fog machines are there that would be relatively safe outdoors?

    thanks for any advice on this.

    regards,
    goat

    I like the idea but will smoke at that height in the dark be visible?

    I'd put a small; floodlight on the chimney, or in it (if in maybe RGB so you can make it flicker red?) to make sure you see the smoke. You could use PVC pipe and have the machine on the ground where you have a little more control, as naturally the smoke rises, so blast it a little, wait 5 secs and it should come out the other end into the chimney
