    I had some salmon in the freezer from my annual Michigan trip last fall, so I figured I would give it a smoke. I soaked it in Hi Mountain's Gourmet Fish Brine for 12 hours, then it went on the ECB for about 4 hours at about 230 degrees. I smoked it with apple for the first hour then just let it cook after that. It turned out pretty good.
    Enjoy the pictures.
    Ready to start the smoke.

    After 2 hours.

    Finished after 4 hours, 2 platefuls.

    Looks good!
    I smoked some salmon yesterday. Sprinkled with Paul Prudhomme's Seafood Magic and drizzled with honey. Smoked with apple.
    It was my first try with salmon and it turned out a bit drier than I like, but tasty. Just a timing thing.
    I love smoked salmon!

    That looks mighty fine to me Habaneroman. Mine was pretty good. I took some into work tonight for a few friends, and they said it was pretty tasty. You just have to feel it and guess at how dry or moist it is, kind of like jerky.
