Another bitterly cold day in Wisconsin, fish are not biting anymore, couple more inches of snow last night, so what to do. I decided to brine a chicken over night in Pops brine. Had some extra brine left, so I grabbed a couple salmon filets from the freezer and decided to try them with pops also. Took them out of the brine this morning, rinsed and set on racks to dry for a couple hours. Pre heated the mes. Filled the amnps half full of maple. Going to run the mes at 200 until the salmon is done to about 145. Then I will up the temp as high as I can in this cold(5 degrees today heatwave) until the chicken is done. 2 hours in. Salmon almost ready to come out.
