You know I thought about the next time I might not smoke all of it.
Just keep some right out of the brine.
After you taste it smoked, you'll forget about that idea.
Nice Job AKDutchguy!!!
I have found that when cold smoking, it takes a lot more hours than when warm smoking. I get enough color & flavor from between 8 & 12 hours when warm smoking, but it takes longer than 12 or even 20 hours of cold smoke to make me happy.
