Default Help! Cold smokin in an UDS how?

Ok I have never cold smoked in my life nor have I ever seen anyone do it. I have been searching the net for some answers but I'm more confused now than before I started looking. I would like to us my UDS if possible to smoke in. Are generators the way to go? If so how can I hook one up without drilling more holes in my drum? Can I use a intake 3/4 valve or 3/4 black pipe? Or are those little trays / tubes that you light the ends of the way to go? I would like to make whatever device myself too, so help there too. Thanks guys

I haven't cold smoked in my UDS, but seems to me that you can use one of the intakes to get smoke in there, and there are many ways to generate that smoke. No need for drilling holes at all.

I've cold smoked a ton of cheese in my drum. Make one of the coffee can/soldering iron cold smokers (do a google search and you'll easily fid them). Super easy and works like a charm.....

I bought an A-Maz-N smoker for my Chubby and it works great. I've used it to cold smoke cheese, salt, nuts and some chex mix. It will use the intakes you already have in place.

i would suggest getting the a-maze-n pellet smoker. you can just put it at the bottom of the uds, light it, and walk away. or, if you're cheap, and have some expanded metal and foil laying around you can do what i did. it will make cold smoke for hours and hours untouched. there are lots of ways to cold smoke but here is what i do:

I made one similar to the one pmad made, 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" x 1 3'4" deep. that one will give me 12+ hrs. on one load of saw dust.

Thanks guys good stuff, it looks like you all use the same type of devices to cold smoke. I'm mainly thinking of using saw dust do to the fact I have an endless supply of it. Does one of these work better with saw dust? It's looking like the A-maze-n might be the route I may take. The things i saw on the net used aquarium pumps to blow the smoke in to cook chamber. I guess those are just expensive toys that aren't needed.

I also use the Pro Q cold smoke generator and am happy with it. It does prefer finer particles of sawdust over the more coarse but will happily produce smoke for well over 12 hrs.

Cold Smoking Moron - don't make me yawn

I'm a moron.
I cold smoked cheese today.
While it is "cold" smoked, there is heat - slight heat, but heat none the less.
Therefore, when I cold smoke, i put the lit portion of the smoking tray in a corner away from the cheese.
Well today I was rushed.
Instead of placing the individual chunks of cheese on the grate, I just stuck the tray of cheese on the grate. It was perforated so I figured the smoke would be fine.

I forgot it was aluminum.

The heat in the corner transfered rather easily to my cheese.
When I opened the smoker hours later, my cheese was about an inch shorter than it used to be.
I salvaged about 2/3 of it, but I feel like a moron.
