Ya would think with all the smoking i do i would have stock in Bradley pucks...............But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

No Maple, no apple, no cherry, no alder. Just Hickory, oak and messy wood  ;D

I have to improvise again with Alder pellets.





Got 3 racks in the bighouse too  ;D


Alder pellets

Hey Rick,
I think you should give salmon jerky a try.

Ok maybe i just need more practice with fish. I mean it looks darker than others i have seen, it taste good, my neighbor loves it. And whats the best way to store this in the fridge if i dont vac seal it? I did this kummoks way, maybe i need to turn the heat down to 165* to finish instead of the 175*

Hey RossP,  that sounds like an idea. Although I am not much of a fisherman. I was just at a tackle store on my way home to pick up the hunting and fishing regs. It turns out where I work has some of the best fishing around, except you can only keep hatchery coho's. Aside from the trout and dollys that is.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

Rick,
That salmon looks great. Ain't nothing wrong with it.  If you're not going to vac seal but rather hold it in the frig for snacking, I let it cool on the racks and then just toss it in an air tight container for easy 24 hour snacking access.  If you let it cool first it won't have a tendency to condensate inside the container.

Looks great. I can taste it from here.

I fully agree. Salmon usually does not last long enough in my house to vacuum seal it.

Mmmm looks good. If it was not raining sooooo hard up here on
the Wet Coast of British Columbia I would be tempted to get
some more Salmon smoking. Keep them pictures coming Nepas,
we all need something to keep us going at work, and your pictures
inspire alot of us.

Well here is some more salmon. I gotta tell ya this has been a learning experiance for me.

This is some of the Bradley salmon.



Here is the Lil'Tex salmon


I kept the temps to 170-175*. It looks burnt but i think its the brown sugar/teriyaki that got dark around the edges. The salmon taste good.

What will i do next time? Dont slice it so thin or just stick with critters that walk or slither  :D

Damn Nepas I would slap down some cash for that. It looks great. If I wasn't already eating some of mine I would go get some right away. Nothing to be droopin' the head on that job buddy.

Looks real good to me also Nepas. If it taste half as good as it looks you have another winner on your hands.
