I am just learning to cold smoke. One of things I found out, after my first few tries, is that you can cold smoke in stages. Some people appear to do this regularly because of their setup and/or schedule. I think this is a good way to go while you are figuring out your setup and the amount of smoke you like for a particular item. I have had a few items that I think may have been better with less smoke. Additionally, like Yeti referenced some items the flavor seems to change somewhat when the items are refrigerated after smoking (I guess you could call it a resting period for cold smoking). My next batch of bacon I am you going to do in stages and start out with about 2/3 the time I have seen others use in order to find out what I like in my setup.
