Cold smoking with beads, how do you get just one bead hot?

Post by Brewerbbqer » Fri Oct 16, 2015 10:29 am

As above, I'm cold smoking some salmon now, and one thing I find a pain is trying to just get one heat bead hot.

What do people who use heat beads do?

I have a smoker on the way but curious. I've so far made a square of beads, and on the inside I put a firefighter, then put a half bead on top and lit. Works ok, but not very consistent!

Heat gun. Just put on on a grill or something, blast it with heat gun or looftlighter, turn it around half way through if you want it lit faster.

Use charcoal for that, not beads, charcoal lights easy and will stay alight!
