Rick,
I welded two different batches to my Bradley non-stick coated racks.  Ordered the Y&P screens right then and there after the second batch. :)

Well here is some of the smoked salmon. I think i might have over done it but it does taste good  ;D

You smoked fish gurus please chime in and let me know what i should do different next time.




Guess my foodsaver has too much vac  :D bent the cardboard  :o and squished the fish. I have a slow moist setting and it did the same.


The ziplock hand vac bags work pretty good.

Some of the pieces do look a little on the crispy side, Nepas but still look tasty to me. I think that you'll find after being vac sealed and frozen, the texture will even out a bit. If you still have some dry portions after sealing/freezing, just shake 'em up in a Ziploc with some blackening spices (I make my own from scratch but also like Chef Paul's Blackened Redfish Magic for a quicker easier mix), call 'em Krispy Kritters and you/your friends will love it!

Hey Rick,
Looks like some of those strips are broken to me.  I told you to send the broken ones to me as I know you don't want defective strips laying around.  If you're concerned about some of it being over done, make some smoked salmon dip but at my house I'm eating those things as is.

Looks good to me.  Congrats Rick! ;) :D

No, no.  Me, Me!  I'll send a SASM (Self Addressed Salmon Mailer) to you.  I can properly dispose of all the bad stuff.   ;D ;D ;D

The salmom jerky came out pretty good. Did 3 hours in the smokehouse and 9 in the dehydrator. Not bad for a salmon smoke virgin  ;D  :o



I cut the hard burnt ends off cuz they was poking holes in the vac bags  ;D


Will i do salmon jerky again? Yeah i think so. Maybe next time keep in the Dbrown1 marinade for 24 hours.

I'm still researching.  It looks like salmon jerky is also known as squaw candy.  Search on that and you'll get a lot of hits.  I've seen a site selling it.  You might have a gold mine there.  ;D

Or Indian candy is what they call it around here. It is generally pretty chewy and almost rubbery. But it peels of the skin real nice. I have never made it but have bought it. I will be looking for away to make it and will let you folks know the outcome.

Quarlow,
I remember having Indian Candy in BC and it was very good.  I believe Bradley provides an Indian Candy recipe on one of those cards that back the pucks.

Nepas,
I'm very impressed with your smoked salmon, too.
Looks good to me!

Looks great Nepas. My little brother has had a 80l in his basement for 3 yrs and doesn't use it much. I think after I beat on him for a little while, I'll take it from him!! I'll give it back when I'm done. That's what little brothers are for right! ;D

Looks mighty tasty, but I'm wondering why you put cardboard in some of the packages.
