Our cold smoker arrived today from Koerner. The italian made "Smoky Affumicatore Espresso" will allow us to cold smoke anything and everything. Pretty much a polyscience smoke gun on crack.

The copper coils cool the smoke as it works its way down to the fan. Since it cools the smoke as it's being pulled through the coils there is some condesation that collects in a chamber on the bottom left of the machine. Basically your own liquid smoke. The chamber can be coated with distilled spirits like whiskey or brandy to add flavor to your liquid smoke.

If you have used a polyscience smoke gun or homemade job then you might have noticed the smoke comes out pretty hot and if you have a lot to smoke then it can sometimes overheat and die on you in the middle of service. The smoke from the Smoky machine comes out at room temp but you can get it nice and cold by dropping a disposable pastry bag full of crushed ice into the middle of the coils.
This is going to be a great addition to the kitchen. I can't wait until it is charged and I can make a nice smoked tomato and mozzarella salad for dinner. The possiblities are endless.
