I've smoked broccoli and cauliflower.  I've used the AMAZN tube for cheese.  No different than the smoke generator.  (Don't have a CSA)  Oh, and give hard boiled eggs a try.  Fantastic!!

I used my 12" A-MAZE-N pellet tube to smoke some cheese two days ago.  The outdoor temp got up to around 40*F and the cooking chamber got up to 72*F. The smoker was also sitting in direct sunlight.  I did put a tray of ice on the bottom rack but I don't know that it was needed. I mainly wanted to get rid of a bag of leftover ice from Thanksgiving.   They say that as long as you keep the chamber temp at 90*F or below for cheese you should be OK.

Why don't you smoke the broth?

When I smoke my turkeys on my Weber grill I always do them with a pan of water under them. The drippings and the water take on a very nice smoke flavour which I then use for the gravy. Don't see why some chicken or beef stock would not do the same.

I did a turkey awhile back and the recipe called for smoked butter. into a smaller SS pot and on the top rack for 1 hr or so  picked up a very nice smoke flavor. could be used in a lot of different ways.
