Default Cold smoked salmon (Nova Lox)

Picked up a nice filet of salmon and decided to try Thirdeyes Nova Lox. His method is discussed here
It is basically a double cured technique using a dry cure, then a wet cure.
It is not difficult and I highly recommend it.

Here is a pic right out of the wet cure.

Onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and dill weed and into the cold smoker for 3 hours.

Let is sleep overnight for all the smoke and flavors to settle and you have Nova Lox.

Make sure you serve it really cold, preferably on a cold plate. I think this piece of salmon cost $15.00. If I bought that Lox I can't even imagine how much I would have had to pay.
