Electric briquette starter?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Would one of those hoop style electric briquette starters work for cold smoking or would it get too hot?


Also I have an offset smoker. Would I use the firebox or put the wood under the cheese?

For smoking cheese, I prefer the temperature to be around 60 deg. F inside the smoker... I use the AMNPS in a detached mailbox mod...

i do not think these are designed to be plugged in and ran for an extended time. it could burn out or possibly over heat and catch fire? JUST My Opinion.

If you are looking for a plug in element you should look at counter top electric burners. They are around $20 and you can adjust the temp on them.

That thing would get too hot...it gets red hot and isn't really designed to go more than 20 minutes.

Just buy or make a pellet tube smoker. I honestly don't think believe there is a better solution for cold smoking.
