Hello everyone. So i started cold smoking cheese and salmon but everytime i smoke these items i end up with a migraine from hell. The smoked products at the local grocery store dont cause me this problem. Ive used alder, pecan, or oak sawdust and chips purchased from the local store intended for smoking. The temp in the smoker does not get above 70 degrees so im not sure what the problem is. I also use a propane torch to get the chips going. The only thing i can point to as a possible problem is the cardboard box that i use to smoke these items. The box itself has no apparent adhesives or tape. Has anyone else ever had this problem and if so how did you fix it? Im rather new to all of this so any info is appreciated; thanks.
