Here's the wife trying to steal a piece of Salmon while I'm trying to do a money shot.

Woodcutter - I only lit one end of the outside row of each smoker. Did not use the rows closest to the heating element. So yes a total of two rows were lit.
A fair amount of smoke came out of the smoker, but as I said earlier, if I had drilled say 3-4 1/2" holes along the outside walls at the bottom(right next to the smoker), they would have probably breathed better. Maybe produce too much smoke?
Bkleinsmid - Basic dry brine of non iodized salt / Brown sugar at a 1/4 ratio. Fresh minced garlic added as well. brined for 5 hours.
