  5.   So salmon and a pork roast. the salmon was fantastic. pork was ok just not falling apart like i had hoped.ran for about 9hr. most of the time right at 150. last 2hr was close to 250. give or take.may have to do some slight mods to keep things a bit safer. but for cold smoking this puppy will work fantastic. stays steady at 100 or less with minimal work. once temps drop it will be even easier.

     
  6. Ok, so it's been a long while. But here's my 1st attempt at bacon and ham buts. Soaked in brine about a week. Rest in fridge for 4 days. And 8h in smokehouse. They are stinking up the whole house fantasticly! Just need the pork bits to cool before wrap and freeze.

    Looks great I would run the cooking temp higher for pork to pull low temp for bacon OK.
