    Hey everyone I just wanted to share!

    I started with 2.5lbs of skinless salmon that I purchased at Sam's Club.

    I then mixed up a dry brine and let it sit overnight.
    After rinsing and drying with paper towels, I let the pellicle form on the counter for roughly 1.5 hours.
    Its currently in my Green Mountain Grill set at 150 degrees with an A-Maze-N smoke tube chugging away
    I like my salmon a little dryer so im planning on pulling at 155 internal.


    Brine:
    3 cups brown sugar
    3/4 cup salt
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon onion powder

    Done tastes awesome. I was hesitant to add the garlic and onion to the brine but im so glad I did.
