Hi everyone!

I've thought about this for years and my wife surprised me on Father's day with a hot MasterBuilt 30" smoker.  I like the thing, but I don't know if I can cold-smoke bacon with it.  Or homemade sausage.  So I'm going to be bouncing around the forums while my bacon cures in its salt-sugar-water-whiskey setup.

Glad to meet you all!

Welcome to the forum Andrew!  It may require mods, but lots of folks cold smoke with the MES.  i know the "mailbox" mod is popular.  Try the search magnifier and see what comes up.  Happy smoking.

Andrew, morning.....  It's highly recommended to use Cure #1, which has nitrite in it, when smoking meats to eliminate the possibility of botulism...

Got a Masterbuilt Cold Smoker attachment.  Works quite well.  Gives hours and hours of smoke.  I cold-smoked some cheese with good results. Second run with bacon in progress (viz post in Pork).  First run was pretty good, but this run I got the pork belly custom cut.  I also got a meat slicer...!!
