    MAK Super Smoker Box Users?

    There are a couple of older (1+ years) threads on this, and I tried to revive one a few days ago with no luck, so I am going to try a new thread.

    For you folks who own this accessory, please chime in with your thoughts after owning it for awhile.
    Do you use it often?
    What for (examples)?
    Likes/dislikes?
    Is it worth the $$?

    Thanks a ton in advance for your inputs!

    I end up holding food in it the most...but I love it and am getting ready to make a boatload of jerky and nuts again

    Like BP we use ours a lot for holding food. Smoking almonds I just love. We make our own smoke salt with ours. Great for smoking cheese too if you like that. It is also great for adding extra smoke to food.

    I have not been around for a while so I'm late to the party, but when I bought mine I got the smoker box at the same time.

    While I also use it for holding foods to stay warm, I also use it for home cured/smoked bacon.

    I will never go back to store bought bacon again.

    So, are you cold smoking your bacon, then, and at what temp? I have only done hot-smoked bacon, but am willing to give it a shot. I've done a LOT of reading, so not TOO worried about botulism. :-) But, I agree that home-made is the only way to go!

    I'm seeing a ~100 degree difference between the smoker box and the main unit. A pleasant surprise for me is that the built-in thermometer on the Super Smoker Box is within 5 degrees of a Maverick probe inside the box.

    It really depends on the outside temp.

    I only do bacon during the cooler months so the box temperature is usually in the 60 to 65 degree range.

    I was just smoking something in the main chamber and it's 60 degrees out and the box was at 80 degrees. That's probably the maximum I personally would want to do my bacon at.
