    I decided to smoke a bunch of different things yesterday.

    I made some snack sticks which I cured and seasoned with Hi Mountain Pepper Blend overnight.  

    I filled the ABTs with cream cheese, scallions, and a little rub.  I used a corer and tray for the first time that I just received as a present.  I used a ziplock bag with a small hole cut in the corner as a "pastry bag" to fill the peppers.  Its a hard choice but I thing ABTs are my favorite food.     

    For the salmon I brined it for 4 hours in 2 quarts water, 1/2 cup kosher salt, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 TB garlic powered.  Then air dried for 2 hours and smoked at 200 degrees for 2 hours.    

    The garlic was a last minute addition.  I just cut the top off, put a little olive oil on top and smoked for a little over an hour.  I have not used it yet but it looks pretty good.  It did not turn to paste like some posts said, but I am sure it will be good in pasta sauce.
