I may have to order some, I can't seem to find it in any local stores.

I have to get mine from a Heinens market, about 30 min from home. I know it can be purchased on Amazon though. It's more of a specialty item.

Well things did not turn out well. The salmon turned out to be somewhat dry. :'( It was darker than I would have imagined and was a little salty, and I thought I rinsed well. The taste was ok but…. When the air dry was complete the filets were firm and somewhat sticky. I had a fan blowing over the filets for about 4 hours.
I think the problems were: a little too much soy, and too long in the smoker.  Also, I believe the filet was too thin and I should have cut larger pieces. I set the temps to 75 min @ 110F, 130 min @ 140. When this step was finished I checked the IT and depending on the thickness the range was 115F to 130F. I also noticed the pieces had shrunk some. The last step the temp was 175F for 60min. the final IT temp range was 141F to 152F.
I will try again soon. Maybe I can get my neighbor to sell me some of his salmon. He has lots. ;D

I must stand corrected, I sampled the salmon right after I removed it from the smoker. It was in the fridge over night and when I sampled it the next day it was good. Like I said before a little salty & dry, (but thats what beer is for :) ) and it may  have become jerky. But it tastes great ;D. I just need to think it through the next time.

Give it a shot Hab, you may like it. I know I like it but I haven't had soy in so long that I don't really remember what soy tastes like.

I will. I plan to order some the next time I order from Amazon, but in the mean time, I will check a few health food stores. It looks interesting. I'm curious as to why you don't use soy sauce.

This brine recipe was originally posted back in 2004 and has evolved a bit since then for my own personal use. Most of the changes are buried in all the comment but here's the synopsis:
I use only teriyaki (or Yoshida's) and I double the brown sugar (4 lbs). Further, I only smoke for around 3-3.5 hrs and rarely pass 145°F, starting around 120°F. All skin/bones removed and meat is cut into bite size pieces. Overnight soak, 10-20 hours is safe and dry with fan on 'Low' about 6' from product for 5-8 hours max...Hope this helps! Just finished making 16 lbs of finished tasty morsels this way....

A nearby health food store sells Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos. I didn't try it as a substitute for Kummok's brine, but did use it in a Carribian style barbecue sauce I make. I do like the flavor, but I feel the taste is a little too subtle for the strong flavor of salmon. I could only taste a slight hint of it in my sauce. This would make a good replacement for soy sauce as a condiment.
