Dust is all I use anymore... I really like the way the thin smoke permeates the meat, when cold smoking.....
Anyone else tried this? Looks easy
Yup.Just a cheapo I picked up at the local thrift store.I use it just like a food processor...I just keep tapping the button until I get the right consistency.
OK. Thanks for this.Add hot tap water to the pellets.... Cover them.... They will expand like an accordion and fall apart...
Evening... My last batch a few weeks ago, was made from about 1# of pellets... 200 + 200 + 100 grams... soaked for about 10 minutes in hot tap water.... stirred only with a big spoon... decanted the water... spread evenly on a 1/4 or 1/2 sheet pan and in the smoker or oven at 250-275 for a couple three hours... Do not put in a blender... makes too many fines...
If you have a heat gun give it a try, takes a bit longer but you won’t blow dust as much as the touch.This was exactly the answer. Very light blue smoke and not going out. Really like what I am seeing here.
Hard to start though as my blow torch wanted to send the dust everywhere.
Might put some full size pellets in the front to get things started next time.
A+. The forum strikes again!
low slow and cool is my go to method.Richie, morning... I just had a friend deliver "cob" from tractor supply... I'm looking forward to smoking some belly with it... Let us know how grinding the cob works... I'd like cooler, less smoke, longer cold smokes to try on my bacon.... Trying to achieve "long ago" smoking techniques...
Surprisingly understanding. But she is invested in the bacon I make and will tolerate quite a bit as I make it.Good to hear... The wife didn't have any objections to putting them in the oven ?? Does it smoke/smell the house up when drying ??
I'm mystified by this soaking and drying method.I dump a load of dry pellets into a blender and have all the dust I want in a few seconds and can make it as fine or coarse as I need it.
As mystified as you may be, do you find the dust an improvement to your smoking arsenal ??I'm mystified by this soaking and drying method.I dump a load of dry pellets into a blender and have all the dust I want in a few seconds and can make it as fine or coarse as I need it.
Do you like having "dust" to smoke you food with ??Same here.
If I want a coarse dust, I just run it in the blender with short bursts and make the dust as course or as fine as I want.
