Hey guys,

It's been a while since I posted. I have been experimenting cold smoking salmon using the amazen pellet smokers like this one:

First recipe I did during the holidays was a 24h cure using equal parts of kosher salt, white sugar, fresh dill and lemon zest. I cold smoked for maybe 2-3 hours and was done. It turned out great!

Second try was last weekend. I essentially did the same curing process except I used brown sugar instead of white and smoked for maybe 5-6h. Turns out the pellet smoker, combined with maybe the sun hitting the keg  Huh, generated enough heat which basically cooked the salmon even though it was -20C up hereā€¦I even had the keg diffuser in for added precaution...!

Could it be that the Keg is so insulated that even a little pellet smoker can produce enough heat to go over the cold smoking temperatures? I wasn't measuring temps using a probe or anything like that since it was so cold outside... I did notice (late) that the dome thermometer was no longer sitting at the bottom and was close to 100F. I never thought heat from the pellet smoker would be an issue in such cold weather...

Salmon was still good, but no longer had the texture I was shooting for.

Anyone else played around cold smoking using a similar setup?

A little off topic, but I started to think about how great the keg could be as a pellet burner.  (Also, this forum is so dead, maybe start some sort of topic to give Uncle a rest!)

My first reason (and to be honest), is that I really don't think the Keg is a great kamado...(I don't want to get into that here...lots of other ways to discuss that), but I think it would make a GREAT pellet burner.

Highly insulated pot would allow use at any temp (and outside IN any weather/temp) and the 5000 design could probably keep the same general shape (manufacturing dies) but add some sort of temp controlled pellet feed pot into the front into a firepot in the bottom?

Just thought I would throw that out there....what do you think?

the Conecuh is good stuff.  No trouble finding it around here as it is made just down the road. they have a gift shop at the sausage factory, on the list to visit but the one time we went there they were closed.  (saturday)
I'd like to see it made, not sure if they offer tours or not.  Most likely not.

Was at Aldi's today and they had this flatbread cook and eat for 6.95 for 2 in a pkg. and they were big so I just used 1 and cut it in half, put the other half in the freezer for later.

My chrome wire grate rusted out and broke off the stem so I needed a new one.

Lowes had one for $186.99
Amazon had one for $149.99

Ordered from Amazon on 12-14-17 with arrival date on 1-5-18. Waited patiently for it's arrival and it didn't show up. Monday I contacted the seller and they responded that they were looking into it. Tuesday Amazon refunded my money without me asking. They now show it as currently unavailable on Amazon.

Contacted OMC today and they sold me one for $94.94 shipped with it arrving in 5-10 days.

I don't know why I didn't think to call them in the first place.
