The patented ProQ® Cold Smoke Generator is a great little gadget that makes cold smoking easy to do and affordable. Released in 2010 it is now used by top chefs, fishermen, hunters and “foodies” around the world to add a wonderful smoky flavour to foods such as fish (Salmon, Haddock, Kippers, etc), bacon, hams, eggs, cheeses, beef, venison, salami, butter, salt and nuts.
The ProQ Cold Smoke Generator is designed to produce smoke for up to 10 hours, using smoking wood dust which is of a high quality and sourced from sustainable forests (not all dust may not produce the good results, ProQ recommend the use of Outdoor Magic Sheoak sawdust).
Customers say that it works fantastically in their Bradley Electric Smokers, Weber Smoky Mountains (WSM), Brinkmann Smoke n Grills, in fact It can be used in just about all existing BBQ’s, (even kettles provided they have a lid), Food Smokers, or any suitable container, such as an old metal filing cabinet, or fridge. Please be aware, that although the unit is a cold smoke generator, it does have a small area of very hot smouldering dust, so bear this in mind when choosing a container. Traditionally, food was smoked to aid in the curing process (this was before we had refrigerators) nowadays smoke is predominantly used to add flavour. Some cold smoked products can be eaten without having to be cooked, whilst others, such as bacon, will need to be cooked prior to consumption.
The ProQ Cold Smoker Generator work well with Outdoor Magic Sheoak sawdust due to its smaller granules.
The ProQ Cold Smoke Generator is covered by a 12 month warranty, but by following the simple instructions , should give years of trouble free use.
wood dust for pro q cold smokerBy: Jock Balzer on 9 October 2017I have had my Pro Q cold smoker for a couple of years. Unfortunately to only decent wood dust available is from Overseas. I make my own gum and iron bark. the dust must be very fine or the smoker will go out. Pro Q does not appear to care about supplying a full range of dust.
Smoke generatorBy: Per Elling on 23 November 2016I have now tried 6 times to light and hopefully maintaining a smoke without success. I declare the Generator a FAIL. I have followed instructions and watched YOUTUBE demonstrations and still no smoke past the first few minutes.
