Boy this is a tough one... cold smoking takes days and the heat has to be separated from the smoke with a cooling tube. The cure is usually a guarded secret of the cook but generally salt and sugar.
The most complete description I've seen is in McClane's Standard Fishing Encyclopedia.
Hot smoking is quite delicious as well, and all you do is plug the smoker into an outside 115volt outlet.
