Liked the first batch of salmon I made 2 weeks ago so I figured I'd try it again. Was in the store buying some things and I came across the manager special. Normally I prefer to go to the fish market but as I looked and smelled them over I figured what the heck. You get what you pay for most the time but I was feeling lucky. So I made my brine the day before so everything would be ready this morning. Did a basic brine and added in bay leaves some herbs and some lemon juice to it. Will be doing the fish Saturday in my MES 30. Doing the hot smoke again. Followed Bear's cooking method last time and that one came out great so let's do it again. Here's what I'm working with. Took out all of the bones. Will continue with post tomorrow.
