    Got lucky at the grocery store the other day and came across two salmon fillets that were about 1 1/4 lbs each at $4.99 lb which is a great price for this area.

    One of the two fillets



    Seasoned with lemon juice, dill and CBP. Ready for the smoker.



    Smoked for 1 hr at 220 using oak. Did not get a chance to get a pic before the vultures struck. Here's what's left before Hubby got some.



    It was really good. The kids said it was a "Plate licker". I will definitely do it again.

    Looks good, Dawn! I'm just waiting for spring so I can catch some Kokanee (freshwater salmon) to smoke.

    Nice looking salmon, Dawn! And the list of things to do in the smoker grows again. That's a good price even for out here. I take it it's farm raised? I'm waiting for the 3 weeks in spring when I can stock up on Copper River salmon. Yum Yum! [​IMG]

    Yes, Mike, it was farm raised. If it was in season and wild it would have cost me anywhere from $15 lb on up, but it still was delicious. lol
