    Default My Smoke Pistol cold smoker

    Here is the set up I am using to cold smoke my Squaw Candy.

    I took an old ice chesty, removed the fill plug from the inside of the lid, and drilled through the outside of the lid.








    I piped from the Smoke Pistol into the drain hole of the ice chest using high temp silicone tubing,



    The bottom was filled with a layer of ice and a rack was wedged between the front and back walls of the ice chest, and the smoke was turned on with alder smoke.

    The temp in the smoker after an hour :



    The outside temp



    The temp probe is about halfway down in the box. My guess is that it will get cooler as the smoke progresses.

    How often do you use the pistol? I had one a couple years ago and it clogged and the rubber bushings inside warped. I'm wondering if I just happened to get a bad one? I liked it and used it quite a bit as I was in between smokers at the time and was injecting smoke into my grill on very low heat.

    I have used it 6 or 8 times and it works great. I don't know anything about bushings. I think they have a year warranty though. How did it clog? I mean, what is there to clog? Fill me in.

    I don't know if the design is the same but mine allowed ash to fall back down into the pump. I believe this is why the bushings for the "flapper" that moves air wore out. I took it apart when it died and cleaned out a LOT of ash and replaced the bushings but it was too late. I'm hoping they fixed these problems, it's a great idea and worked well until it developed issue.

    Did yours look like the one in this picture?

    I don't see how ash could get into the works on mine.
