    Since I have been giving so much jerky away, I had to stop and make more, especially with another fishing trip due this weekend.


    5.3# worth all sliced up ready for the dry brine.

    In the brine of 4/1 ratio of brown sugar / salt with lots of fresh garlic for 3 hours

    Afterwards, rinsed and now drying for 2+ hours

    Finished product after 2 hours in the smoker at 135-140* using Alder and Apple wood. Then into the dehydrator for 5 hours

  5. That's some dam fine looking jerky.
    It's got me in the mood to fire up the smoker today thanks.
     
  6. That looks great CMAYNA.  I a gather you use fresh salmon.  I wish I could get it in Texas, but I would have to settle for store bought.  Would there be much difference in the taste?

    I must think that for Salmon Jerky, we could get by with a lot of murder if one used store bought fish.   Maybe not?
