Smoked Salmon

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Had a great Sockeye run in BC this year.  Here is a Qview of my first batch.  One dozen 7-8 pounders.

 

In a dry brine overnight of pickling salt, brown sugar and garlic powder.  (very simple)

 

 

Drying the next day...

 

 

In the smoke...140 degrees - 5 hours (I like a hard smoke)...

 

 

Ready for packaging...

 

 

Now that's some smoked salmon!  Turned out delish...

Great looking smoke!

We had a record breaking year for Coho off the Oregon Coast. Unfortunately I was only able to make it out trip! I've gotta get my 2 into the smoker soon!

eh........not bad if you like fish  :banana_smiley:

 

Seriously, very nice looking batch of Salmon you did there.    For Salmon that size, you should consider doing some smoked Lox. Makes a wonderful winter treat for guests.  All my Salmon filet's are way too thick for my likings for Lox so I gotta smoke em.

Not sure what the IT ended up being. I just smoke the crap out of them until they are nice and firm.

Not a big fan of the lox. Now smoked salmon on a cracker accompanied by a nice cold one, doesn't get any better...

Beautiful. Can't say enough how blessed you are in the West with such "bounty".

How long does the season run? I bought 10lbs of fillet (sockeye) to cold smoke. The temps here won't be low enough for cold smoking until nov-dec so I froze it. In water.

Not sure if there will be another commercial opening this year, it's getting late in the season.

Prices are very reasonable, off the dock, headed, tailed, gutted, 7-10 lbs, $15-20 each.

I stocked up, have another couple of big smokes waiting in the freezer!

Normally family members drop by with a lot of fish for me to smoke. It's been a slow few years so I grabbed a few pounds I'll happily be smoking tomorrow.

My wife isn't a fan of seafood, or any fish, so a small ziplock will go over much better than 3-4 eight-quart bowls in the fridge.

 

Great smoke above! I'd have to run three smokers to keep up :Looks-Great:

That looks delicious, the smoker and all the racks look terrific, and the whole project looks fun! Great job! Cheers! - Leah
