hi just moved here from IA never used a brine on salmon and it came out fine. do i need it or not
Hello lonnie t
No you don't. I have have tried brines and not cared much for them. Before I smoke salmon I put them in a zip lock bag with "Italian dressing" squeeze the air out and zip it. A few hours or overnight in the fridge works good. The oil in the dressing keeps the meat from drying out ( i don't use a water pan ) and the spices add to the flavor. Happy smokin
