First try at smoking salmon

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Not only first salmon, but first smoke with new MES30. Smoked two 1lb fillets.

I used the KISS philosophy(Keep It Simple Stupid). Olive oil on both side, salt/pepper no brine. 210* with a mix of cherry/apple(wet & dry). Pull it a int. temp of 150. I have to say, and my wife agrees that this was the best salmon we have ever eaten. Nice smoke flavor, and not dried out in the least. Ribs on Sunday.

I did a very similar one last Sunday.  3 lb. fillet, skinned.  EVOO, S&P, and a Citrus Pepper grinder from Spice Hunter.


225 temp with applewood soaked in apple juice.  Let it go for 2.5 hours.  I didn't check the IT.  Beads of fat were showing up on the surface.  I knew it was done.  I was sort of expecting it to be dry.  Not at all!


Like you said mat, best piece of fish we ever ate!
