SM25 platform. I have a large quantity of rainbow to smoke from a neighbor, big ones, almost the size of a small salmon. I have done many batches of both salmon fillets and trout chunks, generally using Mr T's brine and directions with fine results. . My question is, can I do two batches in a single day. My concern is that in the startup process, the SM25 gets up to 220 degrees or so to get the smoke flowing, and with a cold smoker this can take awhile. Running a second batch with the smoker already heated up means much less time at that smoke generating temperature. So do I run the risk of not getting smoke in the second batch?
