    Hey all -
    Doing Salmon and Scallops today.
    Using a mixture of Pecan and Alder for the wood. I have one foil pack of Alder, one of pecan, and to finish it off one with a mix. Dunno, sounded good and I figured I'd give it a try... [​IMG]

    The salmon was rubbed with paprika, salt and lemon pepper. And then drizzled with melted butter and an asian ginger vinegrette dressing.

    The scallops are obviously wrapped in bacon and skewered with a sprig of rosemary. Then I topped them with soy and honey.

    Also doing marinated eggplant, squash and corn on the cob, but the picture of that was pretty dull looking..

    PD, updates please! How was it? Sea scallops are probably me favorite seafood to eat, better than lobster to me. I drizzle olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon on mine and grill them up. q-view of finished product?

    Sumo- great minds think alike! [​IMG] This is an amazingly simple recipe but it is delicious. They are wrapped in bacon, too. I grill them on metal skewers.

    I second the Q-VIEW!!!

    Come on PD, stop enjoying your feast while we salivate like Pavlov's dogs and post us some pics!

    They look just about the same as when they started [​IMG] so I wasn't going to post a picture... But man, they are GOOD.

    I had them on for about 2.5 hours. Opened the smoker twice to spray the salmon, so I lost a lot of heat (stupid me put the salmon and scallops on the lower rack).

    Outside has a nice flavor, and "skin" on it. Inside has great texture...

    Rosemary infused itself nicely also.
