How are you preparing your salmon? a guy I work with was in canada last week fishing, today he gave me two huge king salmon fillets. I have never smoked salmon before but I have been exploring the posts on here.I may try one this weekend any tips or info would be appreciated
I will post pics of mine when it is done. I just rubbed mine good with lemon pepper and have basted it with lemon juice. It's been on for an hour at 225 with apple chips and cherry chunks for smoke. I looks pretty good right now. This was a farm raised salmon, if that makes any difference. I know more about these southern fish than I do salmon :P
It was hard controlling the temp of the smoker since I didn't have any load in it. It kept creeping up towards 250 on me. Looks good though. Gonna have it with some potatos in the jacket, corn and steamed broccoli. 8) yum
The salmon had an excellent flavor, however I let it go a little too long and it was too dry.
This was my first attempt and I know my wife hates undercooked fish, so I went to 155 degrees before pulling it. Next time I will pull it at 145 and it will be just right. I like the lemon pepper seasoning though, gave a good flavor.
