My smoked salmon q-view

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Seems like it 'tis the season for smoked salmon q-view so here's mine.

Started off with these four pretty ladies.

Then I deboned them and prepped them for brine. They spent the night soaking up the brine and this morning I rinsed and laid them out while the smoker was warming up. All prepped and ready for smoking.

About 4 and a half hours in the smoker at 155, using hickory chips.

Finished product, looks yummy, can't wait to try 'em!

Thanks everyone! I'll let you know how it tastes tomorrow after my Christmas get-together! Having it all sit here and not be able to taste any of it is killing me.

Not really for any reason in particular, but it does seem to allow the brine to get into the meat easier and it seems to cook a little more evenly. Plus it gives it more surface area for the smoke to adhere to. And it seems to make it easier for people to pull off a little piece when eating it. I've only done it for the last 4 or so batches, but so far I'm liking it. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

4-to-1 mix of dark brown sugar and pickling salt, with about 4 garlic cloves minced and thrown in. Simpler is better in my book. No sense in trying to overpower the taste of the smoke and the salmon with lots of other things.
