    First cold smoke with the MES, once I got a handle on how little heat was needed to maintain a 32F-80F temperature the smoke went pretty good. I read on here many people have to wait till the temperature is just right, not too hot! No problem in Canada, I have to use heat to keep the cheese from freezing. Maiden voyage for my 6” tube AMNTS.
    From left to right 1,11/2, 2 and finally 3 hours of smoke, they all look the same to me.

    Idk how much difference you will taste, but I run mine 4 hours, then 24 hours of gassing, then a very long time packed away chilling out.

    With you only running as little as 60 mins of smoke, yours may be ready right after gassing.

    I run 4 hours then vacuum seal very soon after and chill out for 28 days...if my wife leaves them sealed for that long.

    Let us know what you discover with your experimentation.

    I usually go 2 hours with dust and let them rest loosely covered in the fridge overnight before sealing them up. I can basically eat them straight out of the smoker. I have to ask how did you get them to stick on the wall like that without falling down. :emoji_sunglasses:

    Point for sure.

    That gave me a good chuckle.
