Then I'm a big fan of BBQ and cooking so I'm going to try me on to smoke fresh chili (Chipotle). There is a small cold smoking box to put in a ball grill to buy but I'll build me a own simple smoke generator (available to buy online from the United States if it wants to)
In simple moves you can to to:
I take a tube of metal that is 25 cm long and 62 mm. in diameter with a removable head at both ends. The lower lid has 4 St. vent to provide oxygen to the coals.
I have a pipe at the top of the tube 3 cm down from the top and a luftpipa opposite where you connect the supply air from a small akvarieluftpump with variable speed so you can regulate the air pressure.
1 cm from the bottom of the tube sits a dense steel mesh so that rökspånen not clogging the air holes in the bottom cover.
How it works then?
Well you take of the lid at the top loading with smoke chips/chips put in the air barrel into the hole and starts air pump. Then to remove the bottom cover and light the wood chips with a butane torch or similar. When the coals have and it smokes at the top of the tube so they put on the lower lid and the upper, then the smoke out through rökpipan.
Inlet air from akvariepumpen creates an air current which sucks air from the 4 air holes in bottom insert that in turn gives oxygen to the coals and press out the smoke by rökpipan.
Now you just have to insert rökpipan into a container which can be a simple cardboard box or a more advanced built tanks which have their shared or whole chili on a rack or behave in a wire or similar and make sure to keep a low temperature, You can cold smoke in temperatures between 10 ° C – 32° C but ideally should be 24 ° C – 26° C. It may take 4 till 10 hours to smoke them.
I will post pictures of my building and tell how things are going so far, I just fixed all parts?
