    I saw this while surfing the web and thought it might be a good thing to use. Anyone have one of these or have an opinion? It's a cold smoker that you light the "dust" in the pan and put it in your smoker and it'll smoke for about 6-12 hours depending on how much wood you add. It won't bring the item you are smoking hotter than 70'

    I saw it at http://www.coldsmoked.com/site/1590297/page/45029


    (I have no financial interest in this product..I just found it while surfing the "smoke-ring")

    If anyone happens to buy one, report back with pics / description of the unit and how well it works. I think a lot of the hot smokers are interested in smoked cheese and the like. Just some of us are a little more "crafty" than others.

    Keep Smokin

    $47 and change...Includes 2# of alder dust and shipping..

    According to their site, they light a corner of it with a teaspoon of lighter fluid and it supposedly smoulders for up to 12 hours..

    that is what i was talking about- $47, for that? that is crazy. if i wanted one, i could build it at work, for free. and 2lbs of alder is not worth that much, to me anyway.
     
  11. is that "dust" just saw dust, chips from a chain saw or maybe a combination, any ideas?
