    Hope this isn't a dumb question, but how do you cold smoke in an electric smoker?
    What cause the wood to smoke if you are not turning on the electric unit.
    I would like to smoke some cheese and would appreciate any info.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Has anyone tried the mailbox mod. For a masterbuilt? Wondering how you cut the hole in the mailbox.
     
  4. Best thing I ever did for my MES after getting an AMNPS. I just used a hole saw to cut with - I was lucky to have one that was the perfect size 76mm...

    Thanks!!
     
  6. You're quite welcome  [​IMG]   The mailbox mod is great for cold smoking - you can cold smoke in warmer weather because the AMNPS doesn't add any heat like it does if you have it in the MES...

    Its easy to cut the holes in the mailbox. Use a hole saw drill bit, or a metal blade in a jig saw. I used hole saws since I had the sizes that I wanted. As you can see in the photos I don't use mine on a Masterbuilt, but the principle is the same. I also use the AMNTS tubes.
