How does that work?
I fill it with pellets, get it smoking, and put in my gmg opposite side of the cheese.

I'm using this accessory cold smoker for the masterbuilt electric smoker  (MES)

https://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-20070112-Smoking-Digital-Smokers/dp/B008DF6WWE
watch the vid, it works pretty slick and plugs into all MES, gotta brush out the tube inside occasionally so the chips will continue to fall down to the heating element inside, some folks complain it goes out but it's easy to clean out.



The little drawer on the bottom is the ash clean out pan, the chips go in under the little zinc dome on top into a tube, the chips fall down the tube and there's a little electric U shaped heating element that smokes the wood.  It'll run 8 hours, but I've only ran mine up to 6 hours straight and there was some wood left.

I can see how that one works, still can't figure out how the mesh one works as a cold smoker....

You get a butane or map gas torch and burn one end, then it smolders its way around the maze like a punk kids use to light firecrackers.

I think you got to use pellets though, chips might flare up

Once lit you place it in the lower portion of  smoker box without the heat turned on. Could even Jerry rig a cardboard box as a smoker in a pinch.
It just smolders pellets, very minimal heat produced

So you just put it over a flame until it starts to smoke?

You just torch one end of it until its smoldering and toss it down in the bottom of your bbq or whatever.  You don't turn on the bbq itself.
