By the way, I did a maple soy sauce glaze about 45min until done.
Things that I would change next time:
2. Cut into 1 1/2 inch strip
3. Use cracked pepper corn
4. More smoke flavor
BTW, that is a very oily fish! Makes for a great taste!
I'll smoke another one soon with pics.
Let me know if you want help with the brines. I'm pretty experienced with it. Now about the 1.5 inch strips. I'd vie against that. I'd just chunk the fillet into two pieces and smoke it like that.
Also, try rubbing BBQ sauce on it for a hot smoked salmon. Or try a brown sugar dip with garlic and black pepper. You're life will change forever :)
