    First try since reading ANY thing about how to smoke. Did some Salmon and Shrimp. Brined the salmon in a salt/maple syrup/black pepper/garlic powder brine for 1.5 hrs, then smoked for 6 hrs in my Big Chief. added the shrimp (brushed with garlic/butter mix before smoking) when the salmon was 45 minutes from being done. Salmon turned out REALLY good, shrimp was ok, I probably wont bother smoking it again.

    and finally, is this the 'thin blue smoke' I'm s'pose to be shooting for? (was sitting just inside the garage door - it's not actually inside):

    drlouis, the salmon looks delicous. Why didn't you care for the shrimp? They look good to me!

    I liked the shrimp 'ok', I just like it better as scampi is all. The salmon on the other hand disappeared REALLY fast [​IMG]

    Ok, Yeh, I like scampi to. When I did my salmon it didn't last long around here either.

    I seem to have the same thing happen to me with Salmon as well[​IMG] . Nice smoke and Ive been wanting to try shrimp. Sorry you didn't care for it but, it looked good to me.
