    Although I can use my GOSM for cold smoking,  I decided I would like to have a dedicated cold smoker.    Picked up some metal racks at Wally World and built the cabinet based on their size.   I built it out of cabinet grade Maple lumber that I have on hand.

    Done!    But wait..........I don't have a smoke generator!

    Back to the shop.

    Three hours later and a zillion holes drilled I come up with this:

    And it actually works!!!

    The WW racks are just the right size to fit in a cookie sheet.

    Thanks for looking.

    That's some nice work you did there! It should turn out some great cheese and such. I have a couple of those racks also. They work great for salmon and small veggies and also for cooling racks

    Thanks reddog.  Those racks are very handy.  I foil a cookie sheet,  put one of the racks on it........put my rubbed meat on it and never take the meat off the rack when I put it  in the smoker.  Just put the rack and meat in.  Easier to put meat in and remove it that way.

    That's a nice looking build. Shows some pride in your work. Added it to my list of ideas for a cold smoker project.

    Just curious. What are you using for an exhaust pipe? On my phone it looks like a can.
