Salmon...What can I say it's SALMON!!!!

Discussion in 'Fish' started by humdinger4u, Oct 7, 2013.

  1. I marinated it for about 13 to 14 hours in:

    2 tablespoon of fresh ginger

    1 diced jalapeño

    1/4 of soy sauce

    1/2 cup of orange juice

    5 tablespoon of honey

    2 shots of bourbon

    I tablespoon of minced garlic

    Next put a fan on the fish for a couple of hours so that  pellicle start to form:  I did 1 with the fan 1 hour in the frig and 1 hour on the other side with the fan.  The fish is starting to dry out a little bit with no moisture on the outside of the fish, this is so the smoke can really take to the fish.

    pellicle start to form

    One the smoker

    After 4 hours of smoke:

    And the plate, it was so good!!!  We had some Salmon from the store that you heard on the TV and radio " Honey Smoked Salmon" My wife told me that this tastes real close to it.

    It was smoked with Hickory in the hopper in the Yoder and Apple in 2 amazing tubes....MMMMmmmm good stuff!!  I want to try it with Maple next time instead of apple. Pulled at 140 degrees.

    Thanks for looking.
