Cold Smoking With 40" Masterbuilt Propane Smoker

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I purchased a 40" Masterbuilt Propane Smoker a few months ago. I read about cold smoking

in a meat smoking book and I thought this would be something fun to try.The owners manual

had no mention of the cold smoking method and I didn't seem to find any mention of cold

smoking with propane fueled smokers in the forums.

   Is cold smoking with a propane fueled smoker not possible?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

                                                                                          Thank you!

                                                                                        Happy Smoking!

Get a AMNPS or AMNPS It will make cold smoke. You don't turn your propane on. You can cold smoke in anything that will hold smoke, Including a cardboard box.

Happy smoken.

I am going to assume that you want to cold smoke something like cheese, by the way it is really good. You can not cold smoke such items with any heat as they will end up being a gooy mess. If this is what you want to do then you will need to find a way to generate smoke with very minimal heat. It seems like that the most accepted method is to use the AMNPS as has already been mentioned.42.gif

Actually the best thing for cold smoking is an AMNS, but it only burns Sawdust, not pellets, and it's only good for smokes below 200* smoker temp. It puts out even less heat that the AMNPS when burning pellets.

I've been told that you can burn Sawdust in an AMNPS too, but I never tried that because I use my AMNS for cold smoking with Sawdust.

I have used dust in my AMNPS and it works great.

Happy smoken.

I plan on doing the same thing and cold smoke some cheeses. I intend to get a AMNPS my only question is, is there any temperature requirements? It's 46 degrees here and just want to know if it can be too cold to smoke something?

 

Thanks

Chris

Sid,

I cold smoke, cheese, butter, salt, lox in my Masterbuilt gasser smoker.  No propane used.  I place my AMNPS  right on top of the ring that surrounds the burner.  For butter and cheese, I need to wait until cooler months or early am smoking, not allowing the smoker chamber temp to hit 70 or higher.  Since the AMNPS device is in the smoker, it typically raises the chamber temp by 10*.   Thus I'd prefer to smoke if the outside temp is 60* or less  + 10*(AMNS) = 70* or less. 

 

Chris,

46 is not too cold to smoke if you can generate adequate smoke.

Greetings Chris

 

  At 46 Degrees that is very cool! And it sounds like you have some good cold smoking conditions too!

It got up to 99* yesterday at my place.Keep me posted on how your cold smoking is coming along.

Craig has some very useful information on Cold Smoking.Everyone who has replied to my posts has been very helpful.

Hi Craig

 

  Thank you so much for that information on Cold Smoking. I have not seen the Cold Smoke temps really discussed before.

                                                                                         

                                                                                                           Happy Smokin
