    Thanks SmokeyMose,
    Do you have a cold smoke setup currently?
    I have very limited exposure to cold smoking, was a few years ago when i was working up in Virginia. Got to work with Smithfiled Hams as part of a 4H extension project and followed their process for a Smithfield Ham, which is not quite like a country ham; takes at least 6 months to age, and its a lot saltier tasting, needs to be boiled before eating, etc. I also spent 7 years in Alaska, and used a little smoker to do all my fish.
    Now that I am retired and have some time on my hands, i really want to get into smoking, and trying to set things up right.

    Sounds like you're way ahead of me, Rick! I only recently got into sausage making, have only made fresh, and have been researching "cold" smoking as something to get me through the winter (I don't relish hanging out on the patio minding the gasser in the cold).
    Sounds like you have some welcome experience which will be appreciated around here!
