First Smoke On The New To Me Little Chief !!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey all, as some of you know my wife found me a Little Chief smoker last week ! So, figured after getting it cleaned up a bit I should get somethin smokin ! My fam loves smoked salmon (especially the wife) & how can ya go wrong with a smoke like that in a Little Chief ! Plus it was my way to say Thank You for finding this great smoker !

Started with a few pieces of salmon !



Fam wanted nuggets, so got them cubed up & into a simple brine for a few hours !




After the brine & rinsing them, formed the pellicle !




The wife wanted some seasoned with lemon pepper, also seasoned some with some Owen's Wing Seasoning..




Nuggets racked & loaded... Used apple chips for this smoke !




After a few hours, they were done !



These were some tasty snacks with a couple cold ones...

Thanks for lookin all !

I was hoping you'd get some Salmon in there!!Thumbs Up

 

They look Great !!:drool----:points:

 

If I ever find some Salmon for a decent price, I'll be doing some.

It seems my Son is slacking on the "Get Salmon for Dad" thing.

 

Nice Job, Justin!Thumbs Up

I love sea food but don't like fish salmon least of all. But I would eat that and love it. It looks really good.

What did you Brine them in? What wood flavor did you use?
Do you cold smoke or hot smoke?
I have never smoked fish. But friends and family have ask me to. The only reason I haven't yet is that I need to get a smoker just for fish so that I don't change the seasoning in my meat smokers. But if you cold smoke fish I could do that in one of my grills using the amazing pellet smoker, right?

Randy,

Hey Randy, these nuggets were brined in a mixture of 2 cups light brown sugar, 1/2 cup kosher salt & 1 tbsp black pepper ! I used Apple chips for this smoke ! These were hot smoked between 150-155* til IT of 140* !

Yes, you can cold smoke salmon ! Search lox here on the forum, there's some great info ! Here's one thread that may help !
