I have wanted to make my own lox and smoked cheeses since I stated hot smoking. Seeing how expensive cold smokers can be, I gave up on cold smoking. I was on Facebook chatting with my buddy Brandon about smoking bacon. He told me he was going to cold smoke some bacon with a soldering iron and I knew I had to give it a try. I built my smoker from a cheap Harbor Freight Soldering iron and a empty pint paint can I bought at Home Depot. I used a piece of aluminum, some rivets and a few zip ties to hold the thing together
Try it for yourself, it is so easy to do. You can use a large cooler, a Tupperware box, or a BBQ grill. The taste is bolder than smoked cheese from the stores, something that will really impress your family and dinner guests.
Next on my list is some nice smoky lox.
Thanks for reading,
