LOOKS GREAT BTW!
It's because it was night time in Jamaica and that smoker is not a proper cold smoker. To get the best you can of the smoke in a hot country, you run a cold smoke at night to get the flavour in, and then finish it off with a hot smoke later on so you can actually eat it and live.
Bloody clever really!
