My In-Laws have tasked me for smoked salmon for Christmas Eve. It's probably been 5 or 6 years since I've done salmon. Back then, I used a Brinkman (bullit) smoker with pretty good results. I now have a 30" MES, but I've never done fish in it before. The person who gave me tips long ago, said Coho or any other cheaper salmon is good because they have more oil in the meat=better smoked product. In my local grocery store, I see Atlantic salmon on sale and I have no idea what that is like to smoke. Also, anyone living here in the northwest (Washington State) have any tips using a MES for fish. Thanks in advance.
