Cold Smoker Box from Rec Tec

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

New to Smoking meats and just got a Rec Tec, Made great Pork Ribs. I was wondering if anyone has the Cold Smoker Box from Rec Tec and how they like it. I've read some reviews on line and not sure about the ability to smoke salmon or cheese. My thought would be to use a smoke tube in the main part of the grill and hopeful that will keep a low enough temp in the box as to not melt the cheese.

 

I would like to know now if any one has one of these and if it is worth it?

 

Thanks

Robert

Based on the review below and others, I'd say it's not suitable for cheese or true cold smoked salmon.

I have the cold smoker box for my RecTec and it works great if you do what you described by putting a tube or other smoke generator in the main body of the grill. If you run the grill it gets to hot even at the lowest setting. I have smoked a ton of cheese in it using my smoke tube in the grill. It also works great as a warming area while cooking on the grill. I put trays of beans and various other stuff in there and it has been awesome for that extra room for that stuff.

Thank youThorn73 for your reply. I'm still thinking about getting one. I like the idea of having extra space for warming or smoking.

Just order the Cold Smoker Box from Rec Tec. Looking forward to smoked cheese and smoked deviled eggs.

Cold smoke box is a bit of a misnomer. You will not be able to smoke cheese in it - it gets too hot and the cheese will melt.

I was thinking if I use a smoking tube in the main part of the grill and then place the cheese in the Cold smoke part. If it starts getting hot I can open the main part of the grill to cool down. I think this might work.

That is what I do rellwood and it didn't get to hot even on a 85 degree day.

I really enjoy the cold smoker, and use it quite a bit. Great for bacon and cheese.

If you purchase one, a hint on the install. The circular metal piece is a backing plate the is placed in the grill behind the upper two bolts (see photo). The instructions are a bit murkey. This is also a two person job.

Good luck!
