We built a smokehouse in 2009 and have been enjoying experimenting with the art of cold-smoking ever since. Below are posts related to construction of the smokehouse and our adventures in cold-smoking thus far.

hello, my name is Chuck, i am retired. i use my smoker quite a lot, but want
to try cold smoking. i need a hobby. i rent, but there is 6 acres and free
pecan trees. do you think one of the small storage plastic storage units
from H/D would work ??.
Thanks for visiting our blog. I don’t have any data to back up my intuition, but in general I would not recommend using a plastic smokebox as it might give off toxic fumes when heated during the smoking process. If you are looking for something inexpensive and easy to construct, I would recommend building a wooden box out of non-treated plywood. Then locate your firebox about 10 feet away and run stovepipe between the firebox and smokebox.
