Just a crack on both vents should suffice... basically you want the same amount of smoke going into the smoker, as that coming out.

I use a dry cure... 1/3rd sugar to 2/3rds salt.
Rinse for around 2 minutes.

Cure for around 8 hours.
What is the outside temp there?
Cold smoking is best done at between 10 - 28 DegC, but I have done it sucessfully at 4 DegC.
