We all deserve at least one ridicules question on this site ( otherwise how do we learn)? Here's mine; As a single, blue collar guy I can't always afford the finer things in life, like giant cuts of choice brisket from Costco, or baby backs, or pounds of fresh salmon filets.
I do pretty well with cheap pork shoulders, and spareribs, but I'm always stretched when it comes to decent fish to smoke. Then it came to me....why not open a couple cans of "solid white albacore", put it into the smoker for a few low- temp hours and use it in salads, casseroles, and dips and spreads. Anything but showing it to people.
I realize most are of the opinion that if you are going to smoke it then you should use the finest cuts, but I really enjoy taking the ordinary and making it extra ordinary.
Any thoughts or input?
