2nd smoke in my MES 30

  1.       Here are some pics of my 2nd smoke from the past weekend.  I did one filet of Salmon around 1 lb, that I cut into 2 pieces, brushed with some EVOO and then hit with my own homemade cajun rub.  I also smoked a slab of baby back ribs.  I also used my own rub that I put on the night before.  My GF likes everything well done, so I wanted to make her happy, the Salmon was a little more "done" than it should of been, but HAVE to make her happy and was surprisingly not dryed out.  I smoked both the salmon and ribs at 225.  The Salmon took under 2 hours.  I used a mix of hickory/apple wood chips.

    This picture above is before I started the 2 hr foil in the 2-2-1 method I used to smoke these.  I also mixed up some apple cider vinegar and apple juice.  Sprayed them down before the foiling and sprayed a little extra on the foil.  Finished picture below of the ribs.

    Looks great from here?

    I would have done the salmon a little less? But it has enough oil to be a little forgiving.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    They both sure look good!
     
  7. Looks great to me.   Two hours at 225 does sound like a long time for Salmon...anyone know what the done temp is for salmon?

    Cant wait to try some salmon.

  8. Ribs look good, fish is gross (makes choking cat sounds) not a fish person.
     
  9. Ribs look good, salmon a bit overdone for me, but looks good.
