Re: Humidity / Temperature Combo Controller

On the Auber side, here's the best way to do it. The HD-220-W is a wifi humidity and dehumidify unit. If you don't need wifi, the model is an HD-220 For Heating and cooling, they TD420P is a dual temp unit. Unfortunately they do not make this available in a wifi unit. Make sure to calibrate all of y...

Re: Business License/Wholesale Issues

3 things. Wholesalers don't want to deal with individual people coming in to buy small quantities. There's a cost involved when dealing with that. Secondly, if a butcher found out that a wholesaler was chopping his nuts off by selling direct, there would be a real good chance the butcher would boyco...

Going for the maze. I heard they are great. For 29.00, it`s certainly worth a shot before spending more for an outboard unit and drilling stainless steel

Is the cold smoking at that point strictly for flavor? I assume the curing is already done in the refrigerator? No need for weight loss? Suggested storage and shelf life?

I guess they still call it "lox". Nova Lox: This lox, which comes from Nova Scotia, is actually cold-smoked after the curing or brining process. Gravlax: Gravlax is the Scandinavian preparation of lox, where lots of fresh dill and spices such as juniper berries and pepper, as well as some liquor suc...

Nova is cured then cold smoked. I bought the pk-100 already and ordered an A-Maze-N. It will be here Saturday. I smoked some ribs today and they turned out way too smokey for me. Im debating how much smoke I really want to give this salmon. I did not use any of the PS mixes

I`m going to cold smoke some lox on saturday. As ling as I am under 65F, does it matter whether it`s 45f or 60f? How long do you suggest just for a mild smoke?

Update: I called Jeff at PS and he was very helpful on the phone. He did point out not to expect the unit to get much higher than 225F which I think I am fine with. I may consider modifying it for an outboard pellet and definitely an outboard cold smoker like a Big Kahuna. Jeff thought it would be a...

Here's a prototype of what a company called pellet pro is coming out with end of February. https://imageshack.com/a/img923/6867/eOpox6.jpg https://imageshack.com/a/img922/8398/peS0Fh.jpg This is what I'm thinking. The pellet hopper holds 35 pounds of pellets on an auger, but it's the only source of ...

Well, I'm learning. LOL. So, I'm looking for a smoker that will also handle cold smoke. Are they also capable of brisket, ribs and chicken @ 200-350F?, or is this going to require 2 different units?
