Re: Cold Smoke Generator (smoking fish)
I saw one of these designs made up on Trademe for sale 2 weeks ago and it got me thinking about cold smoking.
I did some research and found that the style of smoker you are looking at building tends to suffer from fouling up and poor smoke control (normally too much). Some people did swear by them
I ended up getting one of these http://www.macsbbq.co.uk/CSG.html
which I have found to be really good, easy to use, no problem to clean, no moving parts and no power requirement.
I cold smoked some bacon and cheese recently which turned out really well.
After I already had the ProQ I ended up on an american meat smoking forum (Those guys get pretty serious!) and they mostly using a product called The A-MAZE-ING Smoker. It is pretty similar to the ProQ but better build quality and able to be used for hot smoking too.
Whatever method you use cold smoking does get amazing results and I definitely like the DIY approach.
Let us know how you go!
