New to Smoking

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have been grilling for years, just started smoking a month ago and am pretty much addicted. I bought an electric smoker, I'm happy with it so far but can already see I will be upgrading.

So far I have smoked Salmon, Steelhead, made some jerky, and just smoked some summer sausage.

This is a Great Forum, I've found lots helpful hints and recipes. All information is very appreciated!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the forums New! I got started just over a month ago and am in the same boat you are - addicted. Good thing there are plenty of upgrades and people around here who know enough about them to point you in the right direction.

I've smoked salmon before but did not get the results I was hoping for. Do you brine your salmon first and then air dry it (so it forms a pellicle)? Are you hot or cold smoking? My wife ok'd my WSM purchase based upon the beautific tales I told about fresh smoked fish, but thus far the pork and beef are much better...

Now I'm off to the seafood section to improve my fish skills.

Take plenty of pics of your smokes, and ask even more questions.

Let the SEARCH function be your guide PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
