Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Question about cold smoking bacon with the AMS

Is this feasible in cold weather. In Chicago and in for some freezing temperatures, but don't want to wait till March to try this.

    nolaegghead reminded me that a small 40-60W bulb + the AMS would probably raise the temp just right but I would add - what better than keeping the temp below 40 so there is less worry about micro.

  • what Big Wader said but the AMS raises temps a little on it's own as well. if you are anywhere close to freezing, you should be fine with AMS alone. If you are quite a bit below, then the light bulb would be a nice addition. Once the bacon is out of the cure, you don't have to worry about "safe zone" temps as much. The cure is all about preservation in itself
