I recently had a couple bagels with lox and realized what I have been missing. The problem is the cost of lox so I decided to try and make some. I picked up around 3# of salmon from BJs. I watched a couple videos on YouTube and jumped in. Last night I coated the salmon with 2 part brown sugar/ one part salt. After 24 hours I recoated with one part brown sugar / one part salt. The plan is to stop curing tomorrow evening after 48 hours total. I will not cold smoke this time, but if all tastes good I will try to put some smoke on it with the a-maze-n smoker next time. Last night was crazy so I did not get to take any pictures; below is a picture from today after I re-coated with the cure mixture. I will post more pictures moving forward.
