Smoked Salmon

  1. Got bored and decided to throw some salmon in the smoker.
    Just did a basic rub of kosher salt, brown sugar, white sugar, cracked black pepper. Smoked it with a cherry and apple blend.

    Looks tasty. Any truth to not smoking fish and other meats in the same smoker? I've been told you shouldn't smoke fish in a smoker used for other meats or the other meats will end up with a fishy taste.
  3. I use that smoker for everything. I haven't once tasted anything fishy other the fish of course. Lol

    Some say it does.

    However I did 8 full MES 30 loads of Smoked Salmon back in 2009 within a couple months.

    Also Smoked Bacon, Ribs, Chuckies, Brisket, and a few other things shortly after the Salmon, and never noticed any fishy smell or taste on the other meats.

    BTW: How was your Salmon, Themandji32 ??   It looks nice!!

    This is damn good news because we like smoked salmon in my house and I like to catch them so, instead of buying it, it sounds like it's time to smoke some up!

    I asked this question a couple of weeks ago and a lot of guys said yes.  I did more research on it and it looks like its not really an issue (just wipe it down afterwards and leave the door open for a few days).  I will try it myself and report back.
