Whole filets or individual portions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have some salmon to smoke. Would it be better to cut it into individual portions before brining and smoking, or leave it in whole filets?

 

 

 

Oh, and while I'm asking - apple or pecan?

When you say individual portions, please clarify.  I suggest filet pieces that are 2"-4" wide.  I would never smoke a whole side unless I am planning to entertain a big crowd of friends.  I'll see if I can find a pick of the size I normally smoke.

 

I'd choose apple over pecan.   I normally start out with Alder using it for say 25% of the smoking time and then switch over to apple.

It was last night, but that's pretty much how I did it...
