Do I need a cold smoke attachment?
« on: December 12, 2016, 03:03:44 pm »
I purchased a Bradley 4 rack digital a couple of years ago that I've used for bacon, garlic sausage and hot smoked salmon with good success. Where I live the winter temps routinely get down to -30 C with -10 C being average in the winter. I'd like to try cold smoking some salmon on warmer winter days when its between 0 and -10 C. Considering the temp would I still need to use a cold smoke adaptor or would the cabinet stay cold enough without?

The cold smoke adapter would probably be a good idea.  I'm in Alaska and I use mine frequently.  I smoked cheese with an ambient temp of 28ºF and maintained 75ºF in the Bradley without the adapter.  This is the very warmest I would smoke cheese or bacon.  I've used the adapter to smoke bacon in the spring and summer and it does a fine job and maintains a true cold smoke temp.  However, this is just my humble opinion.
