    BTW SoCalQ,

    I'm sure I already mentioned this a few times, but this method is for snacking fish pieces. The smoking temps & times give you pieces of fish that are dry enough to pick up in your hands, and pull it apart to eat & enjoy it.

    If you want to use this recipe for Dinner, I would do the same brine & everything, but I would smoke it hotter & faster to keep it from drying to the snacking type consistency & texture.

    Yes - I must admit to really enjoying the snacking consistency in my fish. The Salmon or Cod can get to that almost steak-like consistency of a good Tuna steak after it has been brined and smoked ... mmmmmm
     
  3. Thanks, everyone!

  5. Just tried this with Dutch's maple glaze.  Incredible!  Thanks for the instructions.

    I used my Memphis Elite at it's lowest temperature (180) and did a sockeye fillet (half a pound) to try it out.  Took 2.5 hrs smoking to reach 140 degrees internal and had to push the temp up to 200 for the last 30 minutes to get her done.  Used a mixture of hickory and cherry.  Came out great!  Now I'm going to try it with a larger quantity of fish.

    As a guy raised on the West Coast of British Columbia, I know my smoked salmon. I made this recipe and I can say that it a classic hot smoked salmon. She Who Must Be Obeyed and I will enjoy this many times in the afternoon on our deck. Of course, keeping hydrated is important too.

    Thanks, Bear, we really enjoy this recipe.

    Thank You Disco!!

    I'm very glad you & the Mrs liked it.

    Mrs Bear doesn't eat fish. Here it is Me, My Son, and his Mrs who eat the fish.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I am really surprise your missus won't eat smoked salmon. Even my friends who don't like fish like smoked salmon. Ah well, we are lucky they put up with us.

    Does not eat fish? She needs enlightening big time [​IMG]. I must admit my other half is not a big fish eater but she does like home smoked fish. From your pictures Bear she would love these.

    I gotta  let her slide, She:

    Wrote me 254 letters in the 237 days I spent in Vietnam.

    Spent 8 hours a day in my hospital rooms for those 28 days.

    Great Mom.

    Great Wife.

    Pretty good cook.

    Hard worker. Keeps my MES 40 grills clean too.

    Outstanding house keeper.

    Her not being crazy about smoked meat, and not eating fish means there's more for me.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I can't speak for Bear, but in my case, she found me and took pity on my poor sorry life. The secret from there is realizing what you have and thanking your lucky stars.
