Much appreciated Moon. I'm very pleased with my first attempt. Flavor is great, fat ratio perfect. Think next batch I'll spice it a little more. This batch was very mild, no real kick, but the flavors did intensify as you eat it.
Be happy to share outta the next batch PFB, PM me your addy if ya want. This batch is mostly spoke for already.
I find that smoking meats, like brewing beer, it's almost impossible to stay ahead of the power curve of production vs consumption !
I just completed my first batch of SS from start to finish. I think it came out very well and want to send some to friends and family but wondering if, even as it's cured ( #1) will it be ok un-fridged for 3-5 days in the mail ? Vac packed of course.
Couldn't leave y'all hangin'...
Thank ya Dutch !
It came out excellent. If you like sweeter fish ya might want to add an extra cup of sugar, either brown or white. As far as the wood chips I like the bite hickory gives to salmon. I've used other woods but hickory for salmon is my favorite.
