    Well, with my new smoker I had to try out it would do cold smoking. Had a good supply in the fridge and thought over the Christmas break would be a good time to do it. I will need to do more before it gets too warm out again, (and that will be here sooner than we know it). I was doing this in my new MES 30 

    this is what I had in the fridge to do. 


    Never did string cheese before so I thought I would give it a try also. 






    Look at all them flavors 


    Thought I would try Cherry this time around, I usually use Apple. 


    amps going good. 


    pull chip drawer out as I have read here on SMF to get better airflow. 


    Good temp to start out with. 


    This being a new smoker I had to open and take a peek. 


    Good color 


    All vac packed up with Lisa's bags 

    I did two batches and they both went for about 3hrs.

    Thanks for looking,

    yes i let sit in the fridge for 2 days uncovered,, i did not wipe the condensation i let it dry on its own,,i think that helps with more flavour later on

    Looks great DS! I'd have a hard time getting 42 degrees today during a cold smoke, without lighting a basket of briquettes!!!!!!!!
