Copper River Sockeye 4 Ways Smoked

So the Fresh Copper River Sockeye season has been under way for a few weeks now and I finally got around to getting some fresh fillets and putting them on the WSM. I put dry rub of brown sugar, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne, Slap yo Mamma dry rub and some chili powder on and let that sit overnight. I did a quick rinse and did a pat dry. I then seasoned each of the 4 fillets with a different rub;
Fillet #1
Lemon-pepper & Garlic

Fillet #2
Sweet Jamaican Heat (it's a citrus rub with sugar and hot chilies)

Fillet #3
Cracked Black Pepper

Fillet #4
Brown sugar & Cinnamon

I let them sit for about an hour while the WSM was getting up to temp (225*), then I put them on for about 40 minutes with no water in the pan and added in some chunks of cherry wood for the smoke.

The results were fantastic!

I would have to say the Lemon pepper garlic or the Brown sugar cinnamon. That's a tough question.

Re: Copper River Sockeye 4 Ways Smoked

I'm not much of a fish fan either gut there are a few ways I really like it and smoked is one of them. I can put away some smoked salmon and yours looks outstanding!!!!!

Where is your buddy Toby been? I hope hes just too busy to visit and everything is OK with him.

He's been busy; we've been hitting the graduation party scene with our kids the past 2 weeks or so.
