So, I have my salmon chilling in the fridge waiting for a brine, then a smoke. I have all the ingredients for Dutchâ€™s maple glaze. Iâ€™m thinking Iâ€™m all set to smoke my first salmon tomorrow. THEN, my wife says she wants half the salmon cooked with nothing, â€œjust fish and smoke â€¦ plain salmonâ€. Will that even work??? It seems like it would dry out. Would I skip the brine too on that half? Any thoughts?
