Not only first salmon, but first smoke with new MES30. Smoked two 1lb fillets. I used the KISS philosophy(Keep It Simple Stupid). Olive oil on both side, salt/pepper no brine. 210* with a mix of cherry/apple(wet & dry). Pull it a int. temp of 150. I have to say, and my wife agrees that this was the best salmon we have ever eaten. Nice smoke flavor, and not dried out in the least. Ribs on Sunday.
