    AB, Morning. Love the pics of the kings. Did the salmon make their own brine from the dry rub or did you add some liquid?

    Great color on the Kings.  Now, that filet knife....... that is not your average knife.  My Uncle had one like that.  Funny, he spent many, many years in Alaska.  Must be Alaskan thing.  The size of the fish up there make it necessary.  Yes, I am jealous.

    I am so jealous right now. I would love some fresh salmon instead of this frozen stuff I get around here.
     
  18. Beautiful fish AB!

    My wife and I did the Kenai two summers ago. Me on the fly rod and her on my back with a 50mm Nikon and a Mossberg 12 ga "sweeper". She's mighty handy to have around.

    Our freezer has been empty (of sockeye anyway) for a long time now though. And you are making me look at the Alaskan Air site to check flight costs!
     

    Can't wait to see the smoke!
