    Pretty basic marinade. This recipe is for 1 pound so you can adjust for the pounds you use.

    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup dark rum
    1/4 cup soy
    1 Tbs lemon juice
    4-5 whole cloves or just less than 1/4 tsp ground
    6 crushed peppercorns or 1/2 tsp course ground
    6 allspice berries or 1/2 tsp ground
    2 bay leaf
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp cure #1...Only needed if your going to smoke...omit if your going to dehydrate.
    1/4 tsp liq smoke (opt for dehydrating)

    Mix all together and let marry for 30 mins before adding strips. I heated my marinade to open the spice up but you really dont need to.

    Add strips to marinade in a plastic container or bag for a min of 1 hour, longer is better.

    Cold smoke for 2 hours using Alder. Prob in the dehydrator after to speed things up.

    Great looking salmon. Like you said it sure is expensive at Sam's but thats my only option. I need to make a trip somewhere and catch some for myself some day.
