    Yummy! I'm in...

    Dry brine recipe? At the last place I worked we did one box kosher salt and two cups white sugar.

    Going against the grain of many folks, I love many types of seafood, but salmon is not my favorite.

    There are exceptions!

    I love a good smoked salmon, lox, or gravlax.

    This one is looking great.

    Can't wait to see the finished product!

    Good luck and good smoking.
