    Did anyone else catch today's episode of Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen? He cold smokes some mozzarella with an electric smoker. I’m sure it’s a pretty recognizable brand I just don’t know anything about electrics. What i thought was neat about it, is that you can turn of the heating element completely but still have the smoke working. Can all electrics do that?

    That's really interesting, I didn't see the episode. I don't have an answer to the question...I've never thought about it, but I suppose that if you heated a chunk or more until it was producing smoke, it might continue to put out smoke for a while even if the element is off. I'm going to try that, I never have. Thanks for sharing.

    On the Bradley Electrics you can cold smoke without using the heating element just the smoke generator.

    Meatball, this was one of those disk burning smokers. It will make smoke all day long I guess from those with very little heat? Beer-B-Q maybe nailed it? Possibly a Bradley?

    lowcountrygamecock, I catch it on a network call Opt Saturday's 3:30 - 4 p.m. C.S.T

    I have cold smoked in my sNp a few times. Don't do it in the summer when it is warm out but the cooler months 2 pieces of burning coal and a small chunk of wood is plenty good to smoke cheeses (under 80) and many other meats.

    That's what it was because it used the sawdust pucks.
