Didnt have any cheap whiskey or JD so i had to improvise. A gift from a friend  ;D  (Didnt want to use everclear)


That's quite a friend you have!  I use the same stuff for barter/payment/birthday/christmas for a buddy of mine from KyNola's neck of the woods..

Ah yes.  Maker's Mark is actually distilled about 2-2.5 hours away from me.  I have a barrel at the distillery with my name engraved on the nameplate.  You can become an ambassador for Maker's Mark for free at their website.  They start sending you free stuff.  Some of it is actually pretty neat stuff.

I just joined the Ambassadors club. My reserve is Nepas Reserve. Guess it can take some time to do.

Under normal smoking conditions it should be 140 - 145. With what you are doing, I dont have the foggiest idea.

I am not as "think" as you "drunk" I am.

As I said before, I've never even heard of it before.  But, here's a link to a recipe to dehydrate 'em.  I don't know if it'll help or not.

They are beginning to look really good.  I can almost smell them from here.  You are the king of smoking and I'm not at all trying to tell you your business but when I first did salmon like you are doing, I really welded some of it to the racks.  I hope yours doesn't stick.  I solved that issue by laying the high temp screens from Y&P on the racks before placing the salmon on there.  Can't do anything about it now but maybe for future reference.  ;)

Tell you what.  If it does stick and you break some of the pieces, send the broken ones to me as I know you wouldn't want defective smoked salmon strips laying around.

Larry you the man  ;D it did stick to the racks i have them on and they are supposed to be non stick. The racks are the oven jerky racks from cabelas. Didnt want to put the fish on the big expanded steel racks i made until they get a good coating of smoke on em.
