    Here are pictures of my new smoker I built with plans that came with my new Bradley smoker generator. Also the first item to smoke was a 5 kilo salmon and used instructions posted by Salmon University. The instructions from Filipina to dry brining are easy to follow and the finished product is excellent.

    I'm trying to attach a pack of cream cheese to this post, but the board won't accept the .crc file format.

    What a  monster smoke house.  Would love to see the interior.   How long and at what temp did you smoke the Salmon?

    Sorry but I didn't take pictures of the build. But it's built with 4" hollow blocks following the Bradly smoker sketch. I am in the philippines so the build took three days to complete. I smoked the salmon over 6 hours and used a charcoal fire for a heat source bu saying that I am sourcing a complete oven system from a bakery manufacturer in Manila to use as the primary heat source.

    The hollow blocks were filled with concrete so insulation was no problem. Total cost for the build including labor and materials was $150.00 . I'll post more pictures when I have the LPG heating system installed.

    Salmon was dry brined with brown sugar and sea salt and garlic. For 24 hours.

    Will post pictures when I have the LPG heating system installed. Using charcoal in the oven was 140F for 1 hour at the end of the smoke
