I have never smoked scallops and gonna try some tomorrow. Going bacon wrapped. What type of rub is best (spicy, sweet, sweet & spicy, garlic, etc.). Gonna marinate scallops in butter/oil for about and hour before. Thanks and merry Christmas.

Also smoking salmon for first time (have done a bunch of trout). Can I do salmon the same a trout (brine & smoke)? or should it be done different??

Scallops are way to mild in flavor to go too crazy. S&P or a LIGHT dust of SPOG and you should be golden. Use the Trout recipe on the Salmon. Just dont let the IT get above 140°F...JJ

We like EVOO & a light dusting of Cajun seasoning. And as JJ said, just don’t overcook either one!

thanks for the advice. they were phenomenal!. I ended up using a "money rub" (paprika, chili powder, cayenne, lemon pepper, salt, pepper) to marinate scallops in and a little "sweet/salty" sprinkled on after wrapped. I was surprised that neither rub was very noticeable, but they were still excellent. Salmon was equally delish.
