My cold smoker

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I spent yesterday smoking in my cold smoker....

I loaded it with,
a pan of kosher salt
a pan of sea salt
some pecans
a string of jalapenos (slit but not seeded)
a pan of clover honey
a mixture of black olives, garlic stuffed green olives, and calamata olives

a homemade seasoned salt (Sea salt, kosher salt, raw sugar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, coarse black pepper and ground corriander)

a homemade pepper blend (cracked black, white and cayenne)

a homemade pepper/salt blend (garlic and onion added)

Also...two kinds of mozzarella cheese, one monterey jack and one pepperjack cheese

The first thing I noticed is I need to build at least two more shelves.

I cold smoked at 65 degrees for about 6 hours.
Burnt down some hedge wood for a bed of hot coals, added pecan and apple chunks for the smoke.

Everything came out really tasty....

While that was cold smoking, I put a small rib roast in my hot smoker...

While I was in the firebug mood, I broke in my new tractor wheel fire ring.

It was a long day, but lots of fun.smile.gif

Patty you did good. I also like your firepit. I am in the process of building a 4' od one out of landscaping stones. I am only going to put grill on 1/2 of the pit.

Thanks folks!
cajun, I have plans for every bit of it. lol
I do have to take back everything I've ever said about me eating healthy .....I had smoked olives for breakfast.redface.gif

Texas Hunter, the peanuts and pecans turned out awesome.....had some of them for supper last night. I might have to make a double batch next time.

Thank you Vlap! I haven't decided about the smoked peppers, they smell wonderful. I had thought about drying them for powder, but I might just slice them and use them in different dishes...maybe on nachos too.

Lou, I'm going to use the honey on biscuits and cornbread......so far I've only tasted it off of my finger. lol
