Cold Smoking is a way of adding flavour to food by exposing it to smoke. that's it , it is that simple.

Meat needs to be cured befor cold smoking. Cold smoking smokers usually use smoke generators or similar smoke producing chambers that are away from the main food chamber and connected by a pipe or some sort of a duct to run the smoke from the generator to the food area. the idea is to deliver the smoke - not the heat, as with cold smoking there is no cooking involved. temps are about 20-30C

Cold smoking is about exposing to smoke to add flavour - nothing else.
