    ........oh, and some more Salmon jerky for our upcoming Alaska fishing trip.

    Since it's a standard to keep the skin on when doing filets, I was wondering why not try it without the skin on a couple guinea pigs pieces, so I elected the two on the far right.



    They came out just as I expected. Though no skin, they are holding together very well. This is basically my Salmon nuggets but in monster proportion. In a couple days, I'll break into one to try the flavor but as you can imagine, with smoke being able to attack all sides, it will be yummy.

    Craig that looks Awesome!!! They've been knocking the Albacore the last week here. 60-80 fish per trip! Big fish too in the 20-25 pound range! Wish I could get over there and get a few!
  7. Beautiful!!! And I love the skin even more than the fish on most fish! Perhaps I'm a bear? But your salmon looks amazing!! Such color! Delicious!!! Cheers! - Leah

    Craig, You've got a couple of threads that are in depth enough to put as permanent links whenever you post like bearcarver did with his step by steps. Pretty soon you'll have everyone eating your salmon jerky!

    That fish looks great I have not had fish jerky for a long time, Steelhead and Chinook are just about ready to start running here in our neck of the woods. Will have to give it a shot after elk season.

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

    Man this looks good, I can't wait to get in the rivers here and start catching Salmon. I haven't had good smoked Salmon in years, and never jerky.

    Looks Awesome!!!  As usual !![​IMG][​IMG]

    You're such a Tease!!!

    BTW: I tried it both ways, and the winner was-------->> I always remove the skin from my Salmon before brining & smoking.

    I'm going to do another batch of Jerky this coming weekend and maybe some more filet's or nuggets, depending on what mood I'm in.  My goal is to smoke as much Salmon as I can to help reduce the inventory of our two freezers, in order to make room for the massive amount of Halibut we plan to bring home from Alaska in 3 weeks.   Notice I emphasize "massive"?    It's all mental.
