Building A DIY Cold Smoker At Home
Watch the video
For our DIY homemade bacon series we decided to build a cold smoker, so we could cold smoke the bacon recipes we’ve been testing. Nothing could be easier than building a smoke chamber at home - it doesn’t need to be air tight, since the temperatures are really low it doesn’t have to be made from metal, and you don’t need a lot of special equipment.
This build was based on some oven racks that we had laying around the test kitchen, and the total cost of the wood was around $50.
We are smoking bacon at first, but you could cold smoke salmon, and any number of different cured meats.
