    How long do you suppose you could keep salmon in the fridge after it has been smoked? I caught it last summer and immediately vacuum packed it. I smoked it last Sunday and the wife is still eating on it...

    Salmon in the fridge is like cold smoked cheese in the fridge.

    If anybody knows it is there, it will be gone.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I would check the USDA website to see what their guidelines are. I think it's about 4 days. Not sure though. Maybe one of the food safety guys will be along with a better answer. I guess we should all know the answer to this.

    Wouldn't last long enough in my fridge to go bad. [​IMG]

    Well, for myself , King Salmon I do in chunks, so small packages 2 at a time rest vacuum sealed and frozen.  Now with silvers and reds, doing a complete fillet, if will last about 3-5 days comfortably--BUT--once bitten into-it will never see day 3..
