A little heat is VERY important with these things.

I have an Amazen Pellet smoker.

It works great, but I tried cold smoking bacon in my offset, all I did was light the Amazen and put it in my firebox, no other heat. And it was cold outside

I left it burning overnight and the next morning, looked in my firebox and it was covered in a yellowish substance, which I thought was creosote.

And the bacon smelled terrrible, like an old ashtray

After contacting the maker of the Amazen, he told me without a little heat that the smoke would get real heavy and thick and the yellow I was seeing was resin from the smoke. He thought it was heavily oversmoked, which I agreed with

I was able to save the bacon by soaking it in water for a few days, then I hot smoked it normally for a few hours. It came out ok but I learned my lesson from that!
