A little Nova goes a long way. With a whole side, you might think about doing some each way.... maybe some hot smoked, a piece of Nova, and maybe grill the tail.

Do you have a preference as to the placement of the maze when you have more than one rack going? Top or bottom? Thanks!
Tish, the changes since those first batches we visited about are subtle and were mostly around the brine time, and soak time. Earlier I was cautious because I didn't want to have an overly salty lox, but found that everyones taste is slightly different.....and that is why I now list a range in my times. I'm beginning to like Nova more and more with each batch.

I put my cold smoking tray at the bottom of my SJ Tallboy and on the lowest rack if I use it in my Big (or Little) chief. The one thing I like about the model I have is that I can light one channel or both channels if I want more smoke.
