Did my first attempt at a cold smoke today with a cube of Colby & montery Jack, a cube of mozzarella, and a cube of cheddar cheese. also a dozen string cheese sticks thrown in for good measure! I used my amazen smoker for the first time with amazen apple pellets and a masterbuilt electric smoker. I had trouble keeping the temp down, ambient temp in the low 20's and only the amazen smoker running I had to open the door to release heat every 15-20 min as the temps would creep into the high 80-low 90's if I didn't. I had the chip loader all the way in and the chimney damper about 1/2 open. Any suggestions for keeping the temps lower? next time I might use my weber smokey mountain charcoal instead as it's un-insulated, so maybe I can keep the inside temp lower?
Here's a pic after 2 hours and 45 min!
