  2. I wish they'd stop calling it cold smoking, 100° to 120° F isn't cold smoking.
    The A-Maze-N smoke generators are the only way to go!

    I agree, cold smoking some cheese with it will probably make good cheese sauce!

    $60 for 6 hours smoke or $40 for 10+hours with the AMNPS........hmmmmmmm?????
     
  4. Yeah, it's TOTALLY useless for cheese or cold smoked fish like lox.

    I agree with the others who have posted in this thread and please understand, we have nothing against the MES folks but the AMAZN Smoker will serve you much better than this kit will ever do. I would recommend canceling the order or returning it and purchasing the AMNPS (Pellet Smoker)

    Here is the link amazenproducts.com

  9. Yep there's no way that is a cold smoker, not at the temps they state. I own the MES40 and certainly would not use this to cold smoke...AMNPS is a true cold smoke generator.

    thanks

    So, maybe they finally realized that adding chips every 30-40 minutes is a PITA

    I'd like to see one in action

    I was just given one of these and as said above, as a direct use, it is not appropriate for cheese and fish.  That being said, a little modification on the unit and it seems to be in the right 'ballpark" (at least for 15 minutes of fiddling around).  It is holding the mes @ 74-74F internal (50F ambient).  We'll see how 4 hours of this treats the longaniza hanging within...

    2 hours smoke time I find is what I like best using an AMAZNPS in an MES30 for cold smoking cheese.
     
  18. Roddog what does the inside of the box look like, any pics? Is that a 3 inch aluminum pipe your using to connect the two?

    The setup looks like it will work, but as the smoke condenses, and mixes with moisture, you're gonna have a black mess coming out of your pipe.

    Your deck looks way too nice for a black stain!!

    Stick some cardboard under the thing, until you certain it won't drip

    My 2 cents

    Wood pellets generate 8500 BTUs of heat per pound. That's enough BTUs to melt 59 lbs of ice.

    You can use inexpensive aluminum flexible clothes dryer vent duct to further cool the smoke. They come in several diameters and longer lengths (12"?) They can also make it easier for you to arrange your equipment.

    Condensation is good. The black stuff condensed is the black stuff that will not be on your food.
