Cold smoke mods for a char-griller

  1. Did a search on this and there doesn't seem to be anything on the subject (then again, my searching capabilities have been in question in the past) but was curious if you've seen any specific mods to a char-griller smoking pro that would let you do a cold smoke? Venturing out to do cheese and Alton Brown's bacon recipe.
     
  2. That's just the ticket! thanks Texas!

    I just posted the message below in the smoked cheese section

    I have been cold smoking cheese on my CharGriller Smokin' Pro for sometime. I will get some C-view (cheese view ) of the cheese next time I put some on.

    I generally just start some coals in my charcoal chimney sit 3 to 4 coals down in the firebox and then just sit a full size log ontop of the coals. I try not to have more then 4 coals in the firebox at a time. This keeps a good amount of smoke going but next to now heat. I then fill my drip pans/water pans FULL of ice heaping, I mean heaping to the point they are touching the bottom of the grates.

    Last time I smoked 5 pounds of cheese (2 pounds of colby, 2 pounds of cheeder and a pound of pepper jack), for about 3 to 3 1/2 hours.

    I have yet to have any cheese melt on me.

    Use just a few coals & some smoking wood (pellets, dust, chips, etc.). Might even want to make an ice water bath to keep the temperature down.

    Also might want to try to use a seperate grill as your smoke box and run some pipe from that into your smoker. The farther the heat from the food, the cooler it should be.

    For some reason I don't see Texas' post with the link?  Is it me or is it gone?  I'm curious about this but not sure it'll work very good in Vegas
