First attempt at salmon
« on: July 31, 2011, 03:18:49 pm »
Almost followed Kummoks recipe to the letter.  I got impatient and probably did not let dry long enough - 2 hrs. but I couldn't wait because I want to do salmon followed by ribs.

CAME OUT DELICIOUS!!!!!

Here's the pics...

Fresh silver...


Cut up and in the brine overnight...


2 flavorings, 1 with garlic and red pepper, 1 with parsley...




Out of the smoker after 3.5 hrs...

Nice Job, I have a friend that just pulled in a load of salmon out of the Sound and wants me to smoke it for him. I live in Warshington too, Puyallup.

very good looking salmon there Winestein. You just can't beat that recipe can you. Try flaking a chunk of that over a large Cesar salad. What a great meal. For your first try you did a great job.

Looks Yummy.  I am going to have to try "komocks" recipe with it getting rave reviews.  I have done my salmon the same for years only because everyone says "don't change a thing, this is the best I've tasted"  little do they know I am using an off he shelf (SCOTTS) brine. ;D

Only 1 suggestion or comment....your vacuum packing is way too small. The smoked salmon is so good that you will need to make packages with at least twice as much in each or you will be opening multiple packs at 1 sitting!!!! :) Just packed up 15 lbs this evening myself.

Looks great!
