Did my first salmon smoke. Learned alot after it. First i thought i messed em up. But still turned out fine. They werent fresh salmon. They were freezered for couple days n thawed em out skined em put in a liquid brine i found on here. Was my first mistake. Didnt read up enough and the salmon fell apart. Got em on a cooling rack as good as i could let em sit for a lil over 24 hrs to form pellicLe. Smoked em with some apple chips till the hit 160 it lil salty from liquid brine next time i will be doing the dry brine of brown sugar and kosher salt. Cuz its store bought salmon.
