          I cold smoke the venison sausage (Elk & Deer) I make. This lean sausage then needs to be cooked before eating but you can control the cooking process better at that time.
          I also smoke cheese for special occasions.

            Here are the directions I went by when cold smoking fish....
            Seafood Network Information Center

            Note I don't smoke it for 1-5 days as they suggest.... Rather a few hours.
            Brining it first is the key.

              while things can certainly change, I don't see me going to all the effort to smoke fish .... I guess that if I enjoyed eating fish I might be more inclined .... I do think I will give cold smoking cheese a try .... haven't ever tasted any but am more than willing to give it a try


              as an additional note, the Smoke Daddy we ordered arrived today .... I've unpacked it and looked it over .... it does seem to be very well made .... we are going camping this weekend and I hope to have the time and good weather needed to get it mounted on our Holland Companion grill .... if so, I have every intension of finding something to though on the grill and let the smoke cloud rise ..

                I too will hope for good weather for you.
                Can't wait for the report.
                We had 70 yesterday, and today it just quite hailing for awhile I hope.
                40 degree difference.

                Don't forget plenty of chips.
                If you haven't tried much smoked fish, everyone has a different recipe and
                my bet is you would find one you would really enjoy.
                Nothing better than some good smoked Salmon Cheeks.

                  additional note: in addition to the 6" Smoke Daddy we ordered a 5 lb bag of their hickory pellets .... I almost ordered one of their 40 pounders and I'm sure glad that I didn't .... the 5 lb bag turned out to be a big one that contains a BUNCH of pellets .... so many that it will most likely be a while before we need to order more ..

                    Is 5 pounds as small as they go?
                    Might be nice to have several different types wood
                    for different flavors of smoke, on different foods.

                      5 lb is the smallest .... I liked the free shipping when purchased with the Smoke Daddy .... they offer several different types of pellets and do have one blend that they think highly of

                        Couple tips on the Smoke Daddy:
                        - about every hour... Take something and tap the sides of the unit down towards the bottom. (I use the back end of a screwdriver) This loosens up any burning pellets and allows them to burn more complete.
                        - the hickory pellets are good... Very strong flavor. The cherry pellets are AWESOME. We're trying the pecan next.
                        - you'll need to add pellets to the canister while you're smoking. After a couple tries you'll get to know how often.
                        - clean up... I soak the whole main canister in warm water after every couple uses. I do that so I can clean the the area where the lid sits into the main canister. It gets pretty gunky and difficult to use if you don't.
                        - I've found that I need to run the air pump on a medium setting. Much below that and the smoke goes out. Much over that and the neighbors think the house is on fire.

                        Looking fwd to seeing the adaption to the Holland....

                          all we have ever used is Hickory .... Russell speaks highly of pecan .... down the road we will probably try others .... tips appreciated .... am considering picking up some baby back pork ribs in the morning to put on Saturday .... I'm considering a couple of ways to seal the 3/4" hole that will be drilled into the back of the Holland .... the Smoke Daddy will only be mounted to the grill when we are going to use is as a smoker .... the grill came with a small chip tray but it quickly proved to be pretty much useless .... it will take some time to figure out how to balance the positions for the two smoke chimneys on the Holland

                            It will be interesting to see where you mount it. Is thee any way it could go in the lighting hole? Or at least use a sliding flap to cover it when not in use.

                              my plan is to mount it like the one shown in the 4th picture in this link .... right now using a sliding flap like the one covering the lighting hole is my first choice .... I plan to call Holland and see what it would cost for them to send me one .... to me that is the simplest option

                                PECAN is my favorite. If you can find green pecan, even better.
