    Hey all, as some of you know my wife found me a Little Chief smoker last week ! So, figured after getting it cleaned up a bit I should get somethin smokin ! My fam loves smoked salmon (especially the wife) & how can ya go wrong with a smoke like that in a Little Chief ! Plus it was my way to say Thank You for finding this great smoker !

    Started with a few pieces of salmon !


    Fam wanted nuggets, so got them cubed up & into a simple brine for a few hours !


    After the brine & rinsing them, formed the pellicle !


    The wife wanted some seasoned with lemon pepper, also seasoned some with some Owen's Wing Seasoning..


    Nuggets racked & loaded... Used apple chips for this smoke !


    After a few hours, they were done !


    These were some tasty snacks with a couple cold ones...

    Thanks for lookin all !

    I was hoping you'd get some Salmon in there!![​IMG]

    If I ever find some Salmon for a decent price, I'll be doing some.

    It seems my Son is slacking on the "Get Salmon for Dad" thing.

    Nice Job, Justin![​IMG]

  4. I love sea food but don't like fish salmon least of all. But I would eat that and love it. It looks really good.

    Looks great Justin! Little Chiefs are great for smoking salmon.

    Point!
     
  8. What did you Brine them in? What wood flavor did you use?
    Do you cold smoke or hot smoke?
    I have never smoked fish. But friends and family have ask me to. The only reason I haven't yet is that I need to get a smoker just for fish so that I don't change the seasoning in my meat smokers. But if you cold smoke fish I could do that in one of my grills using the amazing pellet smoker, right?

    Thanks Randy !

    Hey Randy, these nuggets were brined in a mixture of 2 cups light brown sugar, 1/2 cup kosher salt & 1 tbsp black pepper ! I used Apple chips for this smoke ! These were hot smoked between 150-155* til IT of 140* !

    Yes, you can cold smoke salmon ! Search lox here on the forum, there's some great info ! Here's one thread that may help !
