Smoked Copper River Salmon
« on: June 04, 2011, 07:50:07 AM »
Soaked the Salmon in Kummoks Brine for 12 hours overnite. Then got up early and racked it up and put it in the Garage for 3-1/2 hours to get its Glaze on.





Then into the smoker for 2 hours of Alder smoke and it should be done in about 7 or 8 hours

Looks good keymaster--i like the look of that nice shiny pellicle reflecting off the interior of your new Bradley.  I guarantee once you taste that salmon, the shine on the interior of your smoker won't last long.  :)

Heres a couple pics of it all done. This is the best tasting Salmon I have ever had, now I know why it is pinned to the top of the fish page, Thanks for sharing Kummok!!! I do have to admit I split the recipe in half, except the soy sauce (I used Dales) on accident but it turned out awesone and not to salty or sweet at all, Perfect :) :) :) :) :)

Thanks Iceman, Your right about that, wife already took two pieces over to the neighbors, but thats all good, the smoke was blowing their way today so thats their compensation ;D I cant wait for the Native Americans to start selling salmon for 5 bucks a head.

Great job on the Reds, Keymaster!!  I should be home right now, dipping them out of the Copper River but having a great time in Branson, MO with Alaskan friends this weekend instead...looks like I'll have to settle for Kenai Reds instead, when I return home.... ;)

Thanks Kummok, I don't know if there still standing But about 25 years ago I built the two story ice houses that fill the boats with ice In cordova and Kodiak and did a bunch of other refrigeration work there, that was right before the oil spill.

Your batch of Copper River looks great.

I did a batch of Copper River 3 weeks ago, Our Fred Meyer store had a special $4.99/lb if you buy the whole fish.  I bought 2 fish, each about 4.3/lbs each, had the butcher filet them for me.  Everyone said I was nuts to be smoking copper river sockeye, but at that price I had to give it a go.  I used two different brine methods, they both came out fantastico........I mean....it was OMG good.  Sorry I didn't take any pictures.

Great looking salmon.  Wish I could get them for that price here in SFla.

Can't speak from recent experience (cuz I'm still in America...Oregon at the moment...hopefully headed back through BC/NWT by Tuesday), but reliable sources tell me that the Copper River Red escapement is nill so far...they're expecting a better late run in August. If so, I expect to make that one for my winter supply....small fish but tasty!
