Easy to Make Cold Smoke Generator

I realize I am not clear enough with the possibilities to set this thermostat.
I can change the difference between high and low ALSO, so I could also set it at 65-70F as well.

With regard to your previous post Hoggy, Probably best to start a new thread in the curing area, with a note in here to direct people there. I have enjoyed your photos, by the way :D

I found a stainless steel tea caddy that is a perfect fit inside the pasta pot as an inner liner, I'm now smoking two whole salmon as an experiment.

Definately time to get this CSG sorted, tried to smoke a side of salmon this morning, been messing about for an hour trying to keep the wood smouldering, soldering iron, charcoal, now even the bloody charcoal is going out! Only way I could sustain any sort of smoke was with the soldering iron in it, no good when its raining, mind you the garage smells lovely!

So, I may have to accept that I will have to duct in the smoke rather than use my sweetcorn can in the bottom, I think its too wide and the flow of air through it seems to be too weak.

Currently got some charcoal on the barbecue to get heated through, then will try it in the wood chips, hopefully I can get enough smoke to actually flavour the salmon.

Must get my head around what to do with the 4" diameter steel pipe I have got in the garage.

Was gonna tell you all about the problems with getting my wood smouldering, wrote a lovely message and then got the dreaded error message.

Just about sums up my morning!

Guys....

I actually bought one of these the other day! Came all the way from the States for the princely sum of �17.65 inc p&p.

Did think of making one - but my thoughts were along the lines of, by the time I'd gone trucking round for all the bits it was just easier to buy one.

Haven't got around to trying it yet but looks fairly good especially for the price.

Not sure it will replace my Bradley but I like to try different kinds of smoking so will give it a whirl anyway :wink:

A bit of editing required once the forum is back on it's feet :)

Hey Dave,
Glad it is working out fine for you. What is the setup for your wood in the can ?

I wanted to make a remark to some other members: it is not always a matter of work versus money, many people just want to make " their own thing ", the have already a smoker they made themselves and fix their own " thing " with joy, and are proud of that. For me, if I would calculate all the money I spent on the complete rig ( oh.....hope my girlfriend is not gonna read this... :oops: ), I could have bought the best rig on the Net I guess. But I have something " of my own "....made by myself. and am very happy and proud of that.

Don't take me wrong, this is not a lecture, it's just sometimes people want to do their own thing, and most of the times pay a high price for that :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Take care / Hoggy
