So had a lady friend ask me to smoke her some salmon after she tasted my first batch,,, I said sure,, this was about 2lbs or so,,
4cups brown sugar and 1 cup kosher salt,,,Last 1/2hr or so baste with warm honey and sprinkle CBP on top.
I tried to get the "vein" out of the tail part but it won the battle,, didn't want to wreck her salmon LOL
after a overnight stay in the fridge for about 14hrs,,,, I did not rinse these, just used finger to sqweege them off
Put in fridge for about 2hrs to start to forum pellicle,, then went to counter for about 1hr with fan on it to finish pellicle
So got the Amps going in the mailbox mod with Orange pellets,,, Started at 130* for the first hour
then bumped to 145 2nd hour,, and 160 last bump till IT of 145 we met.
Here they are out of the smoker
They did not look that dark,,, Must have been the camera on the phone or lighting
Look at that honey and pepper
These went into the fridge for a overnight stay then vac pac'd next day
I should get the report from her here shortly,,,
My smoker was not full When I was done I realized I had a nother fillet in the freezer of mine I forgot about,,,Oh well that just means more smoking later on
