raider2119 I’d say before you go and make something to chill the smoke I’d try it first just with the smoke source as far away as possible and see what happens, if you have problems then try to create something? Unless of course you want to create something, then by all means tinker away!
As for the cure, I would say no, don’t add any sure cure to it. It’s not designed for use with dairy products and I don’t think it is going to give you much protection and it could throw off your process.
Making small batches at first is the right way to go, I imagine this process is going to take some experimenting to get right but when you do I am willing to bet it will be amazing!
