    I’m building a cold smoker. Adding a pellet system should give me the consistency required - 85 - 100F for 2-3 weeks…low and long. I’m looking for sites that offer the “unit” that I can “bolt on”/adapt. Any suggestions?

    Yup. Are you looking for something turnkey for woodpellets? If so, it doesn't really exist...you have to make it. Those are the parts...or at least a bunch of them.

    Yeah - that'd be nice...was hoping. But can go the parts route. Thanks for you support.

    A Traeger grill with the adjustable thermostat would probably run that cold, you'd likely need to find a cheap used one to make it cost effective though.

    I'm new to smoking food. I have only use my smoker three times so far but I was wondering. Would pellets from a pellet stove make good wood chips to smoke with?
