    A bunch of us have chartered one of our favorite Salmon boats for tomorrow, so I thought I'd better smoke some of my collective Salmon bellies and collars pieces. Here we are after brining the salmon for 5 hours in my simple dry brine of Dk brown sugar over non iodized salt in a 4/1 ratio.

    Love using the smoked collar meat for smoked salmon chowder!

    Yes, I have used the collars for chowder as well, but this time using them for snacks on the boat seemed most appropriate.  Very yummy!  Thanks for the points.
