Default Cold Smoked Salmon and Gouda

So I'm brewing yesterday with Spawn #1 and friends and I'm smoking some ribs. And I get the idea that I'll smoke some salmon at the same time. But I want to cold smoke the salmon. What to do, what to do? I think I McGyver-ed quite the nice solution.

First, the ribs...



Next, the salmon...



Next, the McGyver...








And the results...



I also did a cold smoked Gouda cheese that Al made last week. I didn't put it on till late afternoon and it was dark by the time I took it out so I didn't get a picture but it came out beautiful!!!

The temp inside the McGyver when I was dfoing the cheese was 125*F +/- , it was close to 200 for the fish. The cheese took on all the smoke and got a wonderful light brown color. Can't wait for the time to go by till we can try it.

PTN

It's no megatun but as long as it works. And clean-up is a snap!

Well done Paul.

I'm putting together a UDS with teh DataZ kit and was looking for a way to configure it to cold smoke some cheese and bacon.


Did you line the cardboard w/foil?
No problems w/the cardboard giving some off flavors?

I put some foil on the bottom but that was just to prevent getting fish schmutz on the railing. I didn't notice any off flavors at all. I'm dying to try the cheese but she makes it with unpasturized milk so it needs to sit/cure for 120 days before we can eat it

I never thought of using the stack as a means of cold smoking! I am going to run a length of metal flexy pipe to a box and cold smoke a few slabs of bacon.

Oh, that's a thing of beauty. Too bad you're already married, or I'd proposition you!

Oh, wait. I'm also married. Never mind.

Make sure you report back on the smoked cheese!

Go ahead an proposition to your hearts content. But I need to let you know that apparently I come with underwear/hamper issues.

I've also been lead to understand (from my work wives) that as a rule, you of the fairer sex have become used to that, so maybe I'm a pretty good catch after all?


(Can I use that as a defense the next time this comes up? Cause we all know it will. I'm not the freakin' smaht. And apparently a poor shot.)
