    WHB, evening again.....  you do not need a grill.....  you do not use heat......   smoke, air circulation and low humidity is all it takes.....  brine the fish and use cure #1......  cut into thin strips, dry to form a pellicle, and smoke on and off for days.....  temps usually below 70 deg F....  

    There has been a series on Discovery or something like that where the folks cold smoke salmon....   It is a really good watch on how to smoke food...  the old fashioned way.....
