For a filet 3 LBS

1 filet
1/2 cup of brown sugar
60g of coarse salt
4 cups of water
1,5 cup of maple syrup

I hot smoked as Kummok said starting at 100f and increasing 10-20 degrees every 2h up to 170f (smoker temp).
Smoke with Alder for 4h of smoke

While smoking, baste with maple syrup every 30 minutes and take out at 140f

Welcome  ;)

P.S. I smoked with Alder cause I did not have maple wood anymore but the recipe call for maple wood.

Toker, your salmon looks really good. All up and down the west coast alder is the traditional wood used to smoke salmon, and that goes way back to the native population. You done good son. :) :)

Hey BIG THANKS Mr Kummok, from you, it is really touching me. I smoked my salmon using your method. I mean, increasing the temp gradually. I started at 100f and I increased by 10-15 degrees f every hour up to 180F. I took it out at 140f internal of each pieces. Thanks again :D

P.S. As far as the salmon kind, I took it from the super market and it say Atlantic salmon. Don't know much sorry.
