You can build a cold smoker with a couple of really cheap things. I use this process to cold smoke salmon. heres what you need.
A small handheld battery operated fan.
A coffee or candle heater or small electric heater of sorts
A very small pan that fits on the coffee heater
A Cardboard box
An Aluminum foil pan to hold the malt
Cut a vent hole in the cardboard that you can work out of and easily slide things in and out of, also a small hole to run the coffee heater electric cord out of.
Place the heater inside and fill the pan that goes on it with saw dust of your favorite wood(or very small wood chips). If you're using chips make sure you soak them in liquid....beer is my preference, water is fine. Soak for about 4 hours prior to using.
puncture several small holes in the bottom of the aluminum pan and fill it with your malt.
PLace the small handheld fan in there to circulate the smoke and keep it running.
plug the heater in and you're good to go. The saw dust will burn relatively quickly but give you a really good amount of smoke. You may need to refill your small pan every 45 minutes or so as they burn up to keep fresh smoke in there.
(if you wanna do salmon puncture a wooden dowel in there and tie the salmon to the dowel) It works great for cold smoking!
