I wanted to get some opinions on how suitable my horizontal offset is for smoking bacon. I've noticed most of you on here seem to use gas or electric for your long smokes. My concern is the temperature fluctuations I get with my horizontal, which although they're not major, and I can keep them under control fairly well these days, at the lower temp range for cold smoking am I potentially going to have problems with my finished result? i.e if it' gets too cold for too long will the meat spoil? Or too hot will the bacon cook?
I'm looking at getting a MES as the 30" has just become available in Australia, with the 40" available in the next few months once all the internal electrics have been modified to suit our power. I'm holding out for the 40", so am I better off waiting to do a long smoke til I get an electric?
