    I stumbled across this device and thought "hmmm I thought Todd had the patent on this. Then again maybe not or maybe its not a violation of patent laws. Anyway, anyone every used one? Seems like it needs more holes to be efficient like the AMPS. Price has the AMPS beat by a bunch, I saw this...

    BBB: Is it Ruined?

    I cured up some BBB last week and started the smoker last night with my AMPS and checked it at 12am everything was going great. Shortly after my AMPS went out (probably didn't mix the cherry with enough apple/hickory). I've never had this problem before. I would guess it only got maybe 2hrs of...

    Trying a Ham

    I'm following POP's recipe but all I could find was "Dutch Curing Salt" at my local bulk food store. I'll admit I didn't pay much for it so I'm not out much but I don't want to screw up using it instead of the #1 Pink stuff. Anyone ever heard of "Dutch" curing salt? It does have a pink hue to it...

    New to Cheese Smoking

    So I built my own cold smoking attachment for my refrigerator conversion smoker. Fired it up for the first time and smoked some cheese on Wednesday. My temps never got above 60 degrees. Is this too cold for smoking cheese? I didn't know if there was such a thing. Maybe you need to warm the...

    Suggestions for Sealing up Bolt Holes

    Title says it all. My fridge interior has several holes from the bolts that held shelves and what not. What should I use to seal up these holes? Some might get used for shelf brackets but the others I will need to seal up. Thanks! -Josh
