A new culinary journey awaits with our cold smoker. It’s ideal for delicate fish like lox style salmon, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, bacon, and to flavor steaks that will get a hard sear later—essentially anything that needs a lower temperature. With a cold smoker, the world is your smoked oyster.

Just ran 3 pounds of cheese for two hours in the cold smoker. Works like a champ - outstanding smoke flavor on my test (3 types of cheddar). Cut everything down to 2" widths or less. Really absorbed the smoke. I shrink-wrapped everything for two weeks in the fridge and it mellowed nicely. Ran another 3 pounds last week for Thanksgiving guests.

The only complaint with the unit is the installation on my Texas model - even with the proper placement of the gasket piece, it does not fit snugly - i.e. there is a small amount of "slump" between the Texas and the cold smoker.

Easy set up and assembly
Anticipated the arrival of this unit with bacon dreams and smoked salmon aplenty. Upon opening the box and reading the directions, I see that assembly requires 2 people. Yes, it's rather heavy and awkward. After some brain burning, I easily assembled this unit alone. Save the shipping box that it comes in. Fold the top closed and flip it over. Push the carton right up against the side of the smoker that you need to work with. Inside the carton are four cardboard filler triangles in the corners. Take two of those and lay them on the top of the shipping carton. When the drum is set on top, it is exactly the right height to easily line up the screw holes for assembly. I'm a 60 year old female. If I can do it, you can too. Get that bacon and cheese in there without waiting for someone to help you and you have to share. Maple Bourbon bacon slabs are curing in the fridge for 5 more days and then it will be bacon heaven. I can't wait.

This is a sturdily built unit made of the same materials and construction as the main section. Assembly was easy and did not take long.

Cold Smoker Fits on Pro 22

Despite the warning that the cold smoker does not fit on the Pro 22 unit, we made this work!

We removed the handle and the two shelf mounting screws located on the Pro 22 unit, covered the openings with gasket tape and the cold smoker unit mounted easily, with less than a 0.25" gap between the cold smoker unit and the Pro 22 unit.

One potential issue we see is that the grease bucket now comes through the draft vent of the cold smoker unit. This could cause a lot of smoke loss when not using the cold smoker and the bucket is attached. Not sure if this is an issue or not.

We have not tested the setup yet, but we are looking forward to a lot of smoked cheddar! :)
