Coldsmoking on the Smokey Mountain
« on: April 29, 2016, 11:38:03 AM »
Today I tryed something new, coldsmoked halibut. I already had plans to make coldsmoked some salmon-sides to stack the freezer and had some room left on the rack so why not some halibut?









After 16 hours of smoke it looks delicious and smells great, unfortunatly it needs to rest 24 hours.....

Are you smoking with dust? What temp did you run at? Sure looks good!

This is a CSG cold smoke generator, you fill it up with sawdust from oak, beech or cherry. Light it on one side and it burns slowly for about 15 or 16 hours.

You start with a dry brine made of sugar, salt, juniperberry and dille for 24 hours. Second day you clean of the brine and dry for 12-24 hours. Third day smoking and fourth day you rest it.

While running it doesn't gets hot, I use my WSM but also did it with a cartboard box. Tastes great  with salmon and halibut.

Fascinating. I didn't know meat could be cold smoked.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Nice cook!  Our of curiosity, where are you located? I just got back from Scandinavia and you cook brings back memories of my trip! I hate my proq cold smoker. It burns super inconsistently with dust based on the fineness, density, and species of wood.

I'm from Holland. I orderd mine localy at a webshop called vuur&rook. Overhere Weber started selling a cold smoke generator also since this spring, don't know if it's available in the US. And your right it's a scandanavian specialty.

I just bought one of these only it was the other model that uses pellets and can not wait to try cold smoking some salmon, or trout. Glad to see others are doing this also good to have people to bounce questions off of.
