I just signed up and did the obligatory post in the Roll-Call section, but I thought I would follow up with a few pics of two past smoking sessions. I am definitely still a noob, but I know enough at this point to produce something that non-smokers are impressed with. Lots left to learn, but I have been happy with the results so far.
Some salmon in my low-tech charcoal smoker:
And the final product, brushed with maple syrup:
And this was a mix of cheap salmon and a steelhead fillet (sugar and salt mixture), and some mackerel fillets (just salted):
After a few hours (I had already drained the mackerel):
Dried and ready to go:
And what was left of the final product after I ate some and packaged some (forgot to take a pic first). The liquid is the maple syrup that got brushed on.
Anywho, that's about it. Just thought I'd post some pics since it seemed more interesting that a simple intro.
