I am guessing the cold smoked is on the left and the hot smoked is on the right in the sliced pic.???
The smaller and darker piece(on left) is the hot smoked. It did not shrink as much as pictured, it was trimmed up a bit before smoking. Also, I was able to slice up the hot smoked slab whole, but had to cut the med and cold smoked slabs in half to slice.

OOPS! Thanks for catching that. It was 38-41F for ten days.
