Smoked Salmon

Just about ready to put a 4lb fillet on. Been in a tenderquick brine since last night. Put a grate from an ECB on top of Einstein's firebox with foilpan on top incase I get a runaway hotspot. Shooting for a couple of hours at 190. If turns out as planned, into a foodsaver bag for the wifes big bash on the 3rd.

Yeah, made the trip to Costco, got the foodsaver machine for $125 and the fish for $25.

Never used the Tenderquick stuff before, just my own brine. Got it cause Big Wheels Hotlink recipe calls for some of the stuff. Pics to come.

Sounds like a long time in the brine to me.

It was weak brine, but it could be effin salty... time will tell. Oil fishes can hold up a lot better, and Einstein's been dialed in 193 +/1 2df for the last hour. Fish is just now beginning to sweat.

Just going by memory. Last fish I smoked was well over two decades ago, maybe more. Maybe should have asked BBQ gods that reside in this reality....just some Boulder-speak - sorry.

Hey, before I forget, THANKS for your post (TFYP).

It'll take more than overnight in brine to make it too salty. Folks up here talk about smoked fish like people on this board talk about the proper way to smoke a brisket -- there's lots of varying opinions. Some folks brine salmon 4 or 5 days. Of course, they soak it out longer before smoking and they'll cold smoke it for 7 to 10 days. It comes out more like smoked salmon jerky that way. The point is you can brine it for a long time if you soak it out accordingly. Just my two cents.

Well turned out good. A tad on the salty side, but some folks like that. I put it out as munchies a little after the party has started. Missed the snow by 4 hours!

We got our first snow this morning. It's about two weeks late here.

The snow we got is the wet slushy heart-attack variety. About 16" worth on the walks. Looks like its about to move out. Just overcast now.
