cold smoking

Hi there. I just got the BGE for Christmas and wanted to know if the BGE could be used for cold smoking. If so how?[p]Thanks


  • Susie,
    This is one that worked for me smoking cheese. There are other methods but this one is easy. Very small fire and keep under 115°. Keep ice tray full. Thirty minutes to an hour depending on how much smoke flavor you want.[p]SmokingCheese1.jpg[p]I suppose you could smoke something else this way but I haven't tried it.[p]Spring "Nose Smells Like Smoke" Chicken

  • Susie,
    You can, but not in the BGE. Try to use some dryer venting (metal) entering a smoke box with about a 5 foot run. You are using the egg as the firebox, but keeping the food away from the heat source.
