Smoked Salmon advice...

Since I am now the happy owner of a Masterbuilt electric smoker, I want to smoke some salmon for my Superbowl party. Only problem is I have no clue about brining or the smoking process. Can anyone help this noob get a clue?

Muchas Gracias

Hey HD. Try this link and look for Stogies recipe. Sure since it was him that posted it you will find it muy bueno. I been sparring around with that young man since Moby Dick was still only a minner. He seems to be a purty fair cookie to me. Especially on disgusting stuff like dead fish

I just season and smoke it till it's sort of flakey. I've brined but it don't make much differance in my opinion. I like it dry like snack meat.

Rub it with a little maple syrup, rub of your choice and let it go. Smoke it until it hits 140*, it will be moist and wonderful!

Re: Smoked Salmon advice...

Well if you want to be authentic and do it like it was invented by the native americkan injun peeples of the Pacific NW believe you will need some Alder. If that aint available think a little combo of apple and oak would work just fine. Maybe a touch of Pee Can. Hickory would seem a little overwhelming for it. Just guessing of course. Now some S. Texas mesquite would be tasty on there too. Hope it comes out good for ya.

Except for the mesquite part, BW has it right! Alder would be my first choice.
