I stopped by the AMNPS warehouse today to get some pellets. The folks there are very friendly and helpful! So this is my first try, so I'm going to cold smoke black peppercorns and kosher salt. I see that some people here have used splatter screens to hold the peppercorns and salt. Unfortunately I forgot to pick one up today, so I was thinking about making a foil tray with an opening in the middle to allow the smoke to get to the peppercorns and salt. Wood: hickory Time: 5+ Would it be better to hold off and get a screen?
