This was my first season taking my own boat to the Columbia river Hanford Reach area to fish for kings. We did pretty well. Limited out the first time trying, and went several more times, all with similar results. I had a really good mentor. So, I fortunately have a pretty good amount of fillets that I intend to smoke. My mentor as well as my fishing partner both dry brine and smoke their kings, and it's really good, so I want to try my hand at it this weekend. I want to ask the experts the in's and out's of how to do it safely. I have a Masterbuilt elite sportsman electric smoker.
I always do my kokanee in a wet brine, but I want to try something different. I've only done the little silvers which are between 1 and 2 lbs, so these will be a whole new ballgame at 15 to 25lbs. Thanks for any advice in advance.
