If the sawdust has been outside, you may think about putting in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, just to be sure it is dry. It's all good my friend.

My question is this,  where did ya get the alder sawdust? Was it from a door or cabinet shop's dust collector or is this coming from a good, clean source.  If it's clean and not contaminated with everything else that ends up in a shop's dust collector, then it should be good to go..

I haven't tried it yet, but I've been told the best smoke for Salmon is Alder.

Last year I had a lot of Salmon and no Alder.

Now I got Alder & no Salmon.

Up here in the NW, alder is pretty much the go-to wood for salmon, works nice with other meats, too.
