2nd batch of smoked salmon - Page 2

post #21 of 27

So you are already planning the 3rd batch?   I knew it!  LOL.    I once tried maple syrup and never again.  But it's just a personal taste.

DS,

Question, are you rinsing the pieces after brining on their way to drying?  A pic in your first batch thread makes the drying pieces look like they were not rinsed.  Just curious.

No rinsing,, I just use my index finger and wipe the excess off,, neither batch was rinsed,,,,

 

OH by the way have another "customer" wanting some for this weekend,,, They are doing a early Christmas dinner

Interested about not rinsing.  Wonder what affect that has if any on producing the pellicle?  Inhances it?   Prevents it?    Hmmmmmmmm.

 

OK, so now here comes batch #3  OMG!

 

This wed or thurs, I'm doing some as well.  It's that time of year I guess.

Try the no rinsing on this batch and let me know what you think

 

Getting ready to marinate tonight and smoke tomorrow,,,6lbs or so. (I think that is how much he is bringing me.)

Bummer for I totally forgot to hold one piece aside from getting rinsed and have already smoked the lot.  Next time.  I think you should consider rinsing some for I feel not rinsing prevents the formation of the pellicle.  Just my thoughts.
