First try at Lox

  1. I had to have a go at this lox thing. I followed the much revered bbally recipe. I still have to smoke it tomorrow but it has been close to 30 hours drying and I had to try some. Damn this stuff is good. Bet after a few hours of smoke tomorrow it will be off the chain.

    bbally sure knows how to make lox.... I've used his recipe and it is as good as any lox I've ever tasted....

    Could someone post a link to bbally's lox thread? Doh je, mahalo, salamat...
  5. I think I have some alder dust coming from Todd but hasn't arrived yet. If I plan to smoke today it will be cherry and a little oak. It may have to wait until I get back in town next weekend and I may use the alder then since that seems to be the go to for salmon. Though I have seen many here use hickory and other woods.

    Any recommendations?
  6. It should be good.

    Happy smoken.

    I use alder and apple when I do lox.  Cold smoke for 3 hours.
