Pellicle on Salmon

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

Going to smoke my first atlantic salmon soon and still debating on a yoshida sauce marinate with ginger and red chili pepper flake or a dry brine consisting of brown sugar and non iodized salt with garlic and onion powder for a 6-8hrs.

My main concern is after the brining process and patting them dry how long do i need or can i leave the salmon out? I live in Hawaii and right now its rather humid and hot (even in the morning).

Any advice would be appreciated.

You can put a fan on it and wait until there is a good completed glaze over all of it. That will keep in the fat. Don't let it get hotter than 135 degrees when you smoke it. Good luck.

If you're not sure which brine to use, why not try both?  I personally do a dry brine of brown sugar, salt, garlic.  I also room dry the fish for 2+ hours. 
Also, I prefer to see the fish cooked until the IT (internal temp) reaches 140+ before pulling it, just to make sure it is cooked enough.
