Salmon

Decided to give Bruces salmon cook a try. I've always had bad luck smoking fish but refuse to give up. Here's a few pics to start.

If it looks as good finished as it does starting, you've got a winner there.
I love salmon, especially wild caught. Flavor is much more intense than with farm raised.

Thanks for the plug for wild fish. Ya saved me from saying "Friends don't let friends eat farmed fish." It does look good Nick and we're waiting to see the finished product.

Okay...here's the finished pics. Cook took 1 1/2 hours with a spike in temp. when I added some alder chips to the cook. Pulled it off just like Bruce said at 150*. It came out fantastic, a definite winner! I have friends coming over for dinner tonight and I'm going to use it as an appitizer along with some wings. For dinner we're having ribs that are on the smoker now, rubbed with.....you guessed it, "Wolfe Rub"!




Thanks Bruce, great receipe!

Nick, my biggest fear in smoking fish, even a thick piece like salmon is drying it out. I'm a big fan of cedar planking, keeps everything indirect.
How juicy was it?

It was perfect as far as juicy! I think between brining and a fast cook, it should stay juicy.

No problem, I'm under my shed roof overhang. The wings on the other hand....
