Cold smoke over hot smoke

Hi smokers...

Just wondering is it possible to cold smoke cured pork with ice in a gas smoker... I'm keen to try this method to try & get a more woody taste into the pork more.

Hello Ace

Why do you want to use the gas smoker at all?

All you need is a place to hang the meat and a smoke source.  You can get smoke from a dish of sawdust or fine shavings placed in a pan with a clean soldering iron.  Cover with foil to prevent a fire.  Even better pickup an Amazin smoker.

Only thing you are looking for is the smoke, the heat will come later when you cook the meat.  I find when cold smoking a bit of white smoke isn't that bad.  Look around on this site for ideas to build a smoke generator,  there's lots of them available

Good luck and don't forget the Qview
