    On my ever expanding list of things to get around to, is building a coldsmoker like the one on this website.

    http://www.coldsmoking.co.uk/sample.htm

    Was going to make it for hubby for Xmas last year but never got around to it, and already time is getting on for it to come to fruition for this Xmas!

    Oh well, one day maybe

    the best cold smoker I ever had was made with a tea chest
    and some 4" stainless scrap pipe

    I ripped the guts out of an old fridge years ago now, so it was just the steel outer casing, Drilled holes in the sides for the12mm reinforcing steel bars to support the shelves. Had an old Roasting tin full of Manuka sawdust (oak is good too, and Elm) over a meths burner on lowheat.
    Real smoked fish, not like this painted yellow rubbish you buy nowadays, Chicken ("butterflyed") Green lipped mussels.Even thought about doing a loin/belly of pork, till I saw the price!

    You can make a basic smoker out of a biscuit tin. Throw some saw dust in the bottom, hardwood is best I think, and then put fish on a rack above it, fit the lid and then put the tin over a BBQ.
    This is hot smoking but it seems a bit hit and miss as temperature control is difficult.

    Looking forward to seeing how Bill gets on.

    DBK,
    Worth trying that method over a Cadac.
    Fair degree of temperature control.

    We have a Cobb BBQ which you are supposed to be able to smoke with. There is a gully around around the charcoal you put the sawdust in. It should work although I haven't tried it.
    We are off to Spain on Sunday but I suspect we won't try it there with fish imported from Scotland!

    Sorry, BRITISH fish!

    Had some Cornish sardines last week. Grilled them and ate on toast. Very yummy - and filling too. A couple was enough for lunch.
    Cheap as well.
