Bradley Smoked Salmon Filet
« on: February 12, 2011, 10:47:46 pm »
So I had a Salmon Filet that I smoked on the Bradley. This was my very first time smoking Salmon so I did not want to risk ruining a bunch of Salmon that is $10.99 a lb so I did just one filet. I brined the filet for 12 hours using a mix of 48 oz of water, a cup of Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Mix, 2 teaspoons of red cayenne pepper, 4 tablespoons of hickory smoked kosher salt, and a 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar. Then I lightly sprinkled with ground ginger & more hickory smoked salt before glazing and then glazed for 4 hours at room tempature until a pellicle formed. After glazing I smoked the filet in the Bradley for 8 hours and applied Maple wood smoke for the first 4 hours. I programmed the PID for 110F for the first 2 hours then 140F for 4 hours then 175 for 2 hours. The fish turned out excellent. It was not dry at all and had a great flavor. The Soy Vay Teriyaki is a great marinade. It is full of garlic and spices. I have only seen and purchased it from Costco. I will copy this brine mix the next time I smoke some more Salmon. And here are the pics...

That's some fine looking salmon muebe.  I can see why you wolfed it down in a single sitting ;D ;D  Have seen that Veri Veri Teriyaki at Costo recently and now I think I need to pick me up a bottle next visit.

Definitely pick some up Pete. My wife and I love the stuff. It is a great sauce to marinate steaks in ;D

Looks very good indeed! Nice glaze. And it doesn't look dry perhaps not dry enough for my tastes but ....

 I'm curious about the 2 tps of cayenne ... how much could you taste/feel it?

You could taste it but it just a light amount of heat and not overpowering. It was diluted in over 48 ounces of brine and I am sure the dark brown sugar off set the heat some. The powdered Ginger really added a nice flavor also.

Thanks for the heads up on the Soy Vey. Will pick some up next time I'm in Costco, probably this week. When I read the timing that folks are doing with PID's it makes my purchase of one that much closer. Am I correct in thinking that I could program it to do the various times and temps and then it would turn the unit off? What a joy that would be as my smoker is in a safe place even if it caught fire. Turn it on and go to work and leave the robot to look after the fine points.

I feel much better since I started smoking.
