Last time I did salmon I used black cherry. It was great. Just don't over do it with the wood. It will be bitter if ya over smoke it.

Thanks pigs, My options are apple, orange, mesquite. Its good to know not to oversmoke it. I was only going to hit it lightly anyways though just to get an idea if I ever do more. I personally am not a huge fan of most freshwater fish. Anyone else?

Minion is our salmon expert, maybe he'll stop in. I think the
orange would go great.

SMOKED SALMON BRINE

1/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. non-iodized salt
2 c. soy sauce
1 c. water
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 c. dry white wine

Brine salmon chunks 8 or more hours, keeping refrigerated.
If ya get a little on the hot side with your pit a "curd" will show up. No worry, just scrape it off with a knife. Make damn sure you use K salt.
Good luck, and let us know how it goes. pics please.

Best salmon I ever put in my mouth.
