    Thought I'd smoke up some pieces of the Salmon which has the best flavor, the belly pieces. Since I normally process our Salmon into filet pieces, I end up cutting off the belly portion and have accumulated quite a lot of it. I also have gathered a lot of Salmon tail pieces which I have typically turned into jerky but this time decided to make chunks.

    Today, being the last Salmon day of the season, I served all of it to my fellow fishing buddies and they woofed it down.

    That is just plain beautiful.  Wish I had a plate of it in front of me.  [​IMG]

    Maybe I'd better eat a little breakfast before reading any more food threads.
