A week ago I would never have said this would be going on my smoker. I told a co worker of mine that all fish was just gross. End of story. She asked if I had ever tried a piece of smoked salmon. I said it didn't matter, that I wouldn't like it. Well......the next day she brought me in a piece to try. Holy crap! that was one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten. She got to give me a big "I told you so."
So here I am today about to put 2.5 lbs of salmon on the smoker. I am a jerky lover and after seeing cmayna's post with the jerky pics I decided to dive right in on that too. I took a portion and sliced it up for jerky.
I sort of messed up and did the ratio wrong on the brown sugar / salt, and did a 2/1 ratio. I also added a couple quarts of water for a wet brine, so I could brine overnight. sprinkled just a bit of sweet and spicy jerky seasoning on the jerky strips. Everything is on the racks and drying right now. I will update later.
