    It's still smoking. I got 14 hours & 20 minutes out of the first load of pellets.

    Probably going to get that from the second load too. Incredible.

    They were a little harder to start so I let them burn a good 10 minutes before blowing out the fire.

    I have a couple more hours to go for 24, and I bet I still have a full row that isn't burned.

    OK the BBB is finally done. Cold smoked for 24 hours with a AMNPS and I still have 1 1/2 rows that didn't burn in the second load. Incredible! I'm going to put them in the freezer for a couple of hours then slice them. In the meantime here are some pics right out of the smoker. It really took on a nice color, can't really capture it very well with my camera. Anyhow here they are.

    Nice job Al. I have used the perfect mix before and like it real well. I do not know how Todd mixes it but I mixed me a blend of  50/50 Hickory and Apple then threw in 25% Masquite and I like it real well...

    That's it folks! Thanks for looking, hope you enjoyed it. As for smoking it for 24 hours, the difference in flavor was minimal. I think 10-12 hours is plenty, if you cold smoke it.

    Thanks Craig. It was pretty tasty too.
     
  14. Al, thanks for your end comment that 10 to 12 hours is long enough for cold smoking. I have done BBB once so far and cold smoked mine with the amazn-p in my home made smoker and am very pleased with the results. I have always wondered if longer is better, so now I know it makes little differance.

    Your BBB looks awesome, Bet it tastes the same also.

    Thanks for your Qviews and explanations.

    Looks Awesome Al !!!

    Great BearView Too----Is that still legal???

    Thank you for saving me the trouble of doing a regular 24 hour cold smoke.

    I still might try something, but maybe one I read about:

    10 or 12 hours cold smoke.

    Then into the fridge, plastic wrapped over night.

    Then next day 10 or 12 hours cold smoke.

    Then wrapped in fridge over night again.

    Then 10 or 12 hours cold smoke.

    Then into the fridge for a couple days.

    Then slice.

    What do you think???

    Thanks again Al !!

    Bear
