Good evening everyone, my first post here, what a great forum to find, so much great information and knowledge.

I've recently moved to Alberta, Canada from the London, England with my family.
My father-in-law and I have decided to set up a cold smoker using his old stand up freezer, and purchased a "SmokeMiester with Extended Smoker".
I know it's slightly gimmicky but it's a cheap start and a good way of upcycling.

Winter is just beginning here, and they get properly cold ( it's -7, and supposedly mild, right now @ 2330)
How will this affect us cold smoking fish outside, any hints and tips will be greatly appreciated. Both super novices.

Many thanks,

CB

Welcome to the sight, I think the biggest issue is keeping stuff from freezing, not sure how the new equipment works , a few test runs will tell the story of the equipment vs the elements, I will bet it will work fine with some practice. They host pictures here so its super easy to do, also for a a few bucks a year you can get rid of the ads that pop up , its how I remember to renew my dues lol

Welcome to SMF!
I can’t help you with the cold weather smoking, cause I’m in Florida.
But I know a lot of the guys smoke in freezing temps!
