smoked salmon, chicken and beans - stacked , with da Q View & recipie

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

A good friend recently sent some Alaska Red Salmon my way.  I decided to make full use of the smoker time by also pre-smoakin' some beans and chicken for dinner...

 

Pre soaked the salmon in my brine mix...

 

3/4 cup non iodized salt

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon onion powder

 1 tablespoon garlic powder

3/4 cup teriyaki sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

1/2 cup lemon juice

3 qts. water

 

Stir all above until all salt and sugars dissolved. Place rinsed, clean salmon into brine and soak overnight in fridge ( at least 6 hours )


I prefer fillets - for less bones and cookability - but this is what my friend sent me...

 

Rinse under cool water, paper towel dry 'em and rack 'em for an hour or so until a bit of tackiness develops.Put 'em in the smoker  and  smoke 'em....

 

I do about 3 hours of smoke, hickory or mesquite, for cuts this thick between 170* - 190* with total smoker time 4-5 hours. Remove chunks as done.

 

 

While smokin' this batch I also pre smoked chicken thighs and beans for dinner....

 

 

 

 

sorry... no left overs

Thankya Sailor . 

Despite being steaks instead of fillets the fish come out all right.  Beans were out of this world.  First time smoking beans. Gonna happen more often for sure !

Thanks Bear,  I went to your quick tips page, read your smoked salmon technique.  As a lifelong Alaskan who has smoked a LOT of salmon I was real impressed with your recipie and techniques.  You know your stuff.  Which makes your compliment all the better. Keep on smokin' my friend !

Tasty meal you made there.

May I only suggest having the chicken at the bottom. Mainly for safety reasons but also because chicken can take high heat.

Nice , I love Salmon , wish I had a friend with too much... :icon_eek: I would be a happy camper...

 

I have a question about one of your photos ...3rd one , did I see raw Chicken over some Fish :icon_question: Shame :icon_exclaim:

 

Meal looked great and I'd have none left either... Beans looked good too . Have you smoked Pinto Beans yet... they're great :icon_exclaim: I get tired of them Navy Beans (like Pork and Beans) .

 

Anyhow , have fun and . . .

I have the same thoughts of my getting a compliment on my Salmon from a guy who had been in Alaska for 50 years.

 

Thank You Very Much!!

I considered the chicken on bottom but didnt want the fish dripping on it. As the fish would be in for over 4 hours I feel safe enuf.
Thanks for the kind feedback
