    Thats pretty cool. So how does that thing work? Light one end and it smolders in a spiral pattern towards the center? I will have to check out their web site.

    First I have meat in brine,1 liter of water and 240 g salt

    for 5 days

    remove from the brine and put it in plain water,for 1 hours

    Dry the meat thoroughly dried
    dry over night

    and then smoke for 3 times

    The taste was good for first time

    I hope that pork loin tested really good because you put an awful lot of work into it. Now that smoking contraption seems like it worked well and it just smokes it way aroung the grid or spiral tray. I would also like to see the website if yo have it around.

    yes that is the side that I use
     
  12. That looks really neat. My question is could i just run that goofy basket and run it in the bottom of my smoker?

    yes that is possible
    you can use it also in a paperboard box,it does not heat or almost anything

    I am somewhat suprised, not at the results of this test or at the device used...

    But more so at the fact this device is new to this forum... Doing a simple google search in my quest for more knowledge of cold smoking, the proQ device was one of the first results... I figured this was a common trade item around here for people that did not want to do cold smoking the traditional way.

  16. Very interesting...I've seen someone do that with charcoal...kinda like a minion method but never for cold smoking.
