I am doing some smoked salmon, a lake trout and a pompano I caught in Florida last winter (last one is an experiment!). If I vacuum seal, how long can I keep in the refrigerator? I thought I would cold smoke for about 3 hours and then raise temp. to 145 over a couple of hours to finish. They will brine overnight in a liquid brine. Any thoughts/comments? Thanks.
