The need to brine

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to cold smoke some salmon.
Do you always have to brine the salmon before you smoke it?
Do you need to remove the skin?
How long is a typical cold smoke time?

Thanks
Steve

Steve, morning and welcome to the forum....

 

I want to cold smoke some salmon.
Do you always have to brine the salmon before you smoke it?

Yes, brine or dry rub......   salt, sugar and cure #1 minimum...


Do you need to remove the skin?

Do NOT remove the skin.....   remove the bones....


How long is a typical cold smoke time?

Natives will cold smoke salmon for weeks.... I cold smoke for 3-4 days....
