I had tried cold smoking in my offset smoker using one or two hot coal sitting on some wood. They never quite generated enough smoke. After reading about the A-MAZE-N smoker on SMF I decided to give it a shot. I received mine on January 3rd and finally had time to give it a shot. The MES is rather elusive around here for whatever reason so I chucked that idea. Rather than using either of the offset smokers I decided to go a cheap route via the cardboard box smoker . So far so good. Quite impressed with this smoker.
The cardboard box smoker. Made from two boxes. One of those was the shipping box from A-MAZE-N
View inside the box. The rack is a stackable cookie cooling rack I picked up a Fred Meyers on sale.
Smoking cheese sticks. Testing out how distance affects the smoke. The ones on top seem to be tolerating it better.
A shot of the A-MAZE-N 6x8 smoker burning away from one end. I had started burning both ends. It produced too much smoke so I killed one end. Even with just one end burning it produces enough smoke.
