First, let me assure everyone that I have no affiliation with the company that makes Cold Smoker 3, and I couldn't give a rat's Mangrate whether or not you buy one. But, a few expressed interest in it, so here is my first attempt at using it.
I bought an 8 inch 1/2 in, pipe to replace the shipped 3 inch pipe so it would clear the table.
Looking down the cannister. The charcoal and chips will be put in here and the wire mesh keeps them in.
Light it with some crushed Magic Light charcoal.
When the flames die down, fill with wood chips.
Put the top and bottom caps on. Now, here's my problem. The fitting that was supposed to fit a Big Green Egg doesn't fit. To get it to even sit there, I had to bend it with a crescent wrench. Still, as you can see, it leaks profusely.
I don't get any draw out the top of the Egg.
However, if I open the dome, it is saturated with smoke. So, I think I'm happy with the meat getting smoked, but I need to work on getting a better fit at the bottom.
