    I have 2 pieces of salmon in the 4/1 brine. Things have came up and I may not be able to smoke it this evening. Can I leave it in the brine and smoke it tomorrow?

    It will have been in the brine for approximately 22 hours.

    Haven’t done a lot of salmon but I would rinse it dry it and put in the fridge overnight to form a pelicule that way it’s ready to smoke tomorrow. Hopefully someone else will be along shortly.

    I would agree with that as I ran into the same problem and left it in another day and then smoked it. Was way too salty and you can do nothing after the smoke.

    I go by Herb's advice.
    EXCEPT.... I rinse in cold water.

    If you want to jump ahead, here's the frame...
