I use mine solely for cold smoking. I have tried to use it in my kettle to do regular smoking but it doesnt want to stay lit when there is a heat source nearby. I have tried dozens of times to keep it lit and I have come to the realization that it is only going to be good for cold smoking.
Make sure to vacuum seal the cheeses and let them rest in the fridge for a few weeks.
