Quick Salmon Quesion

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just picked up some wild caught Coho Salmon filets and planned on cooking them in the BBQ/Smoker. I was going to build a charcoal bed and add some wood for a smokey flavor.

So what wood?

I have Cherry & Hickory.

Thanks in advance!

My Favorite wood for Salmon is Alder. I did a combo of Alder and Hickory and it came out good this weekend...

Alder is the most popular wood for salmon, but I did mine with hickory and they came out great.

For fish, I'd go with Alder first however I do mix Alder & Apple with excellent results.

i've used alder, cherry, apple and maple for trout. all came out great.

a blend of the four (if available) might be the way to go. i tried this with trout last time and it seemed to be the best yet - strong where it should be and subtle where it needs to be.

Are you going to brine them?

Always Alder........If No Alder is available, use Alder.

while alder seems to be the most popular, I've had good luck with hickory when it was all I've had on hand. Never used cherry for salmon, but give 'er a shot.
