Hey, from Texas and just began smoking fun. Got a 26" Hallow smoker for my birthday--nice, but kind of small. So, thank you and You Tube for learning how to use my Weber kettle as a smoker. That was just right. So now, my first Salmon smoke was pure outright FAIL-- going to try again today by using a brine. Note-- the first attempt seemed way too sugary.. Suggestions welcome as I intend to get it in brine and in the fridge in a few and smoke it tomorrow.
