    Picked up some salmon at Sams. Beautiful slab. Rubbed with Yoshidas and smoked at 225 for 2.5 hours with alder. Plated with saffron rice and califlower with cheese. Sprinkled some fresh dill, lemon and pepper on before eatin. Turned out really nice. Salmon isn't one of my favorites... but I enjoyed this. I think it was the sweet from the Yoshidas that did it for me. Red loves it.

    That salmon looks great to me! Did you put it on a regular grill or some kind of veggie basket or such? [​IMG] If they didnt fall apart I'd put a few in a rib rack.[​IMG]

    I have these great little baked enamel trays that have holes in them. They work great for fish.

    Hey Pig, you have definitely earned points for such a beautiful presentation of mouthwatering food! Excellent salmon and that saffron rice looks like the perfect side for it. Well done, bud!


    (Well the points police won't let me give you any, but you earned 'em anyway)

    That looks fantastic Dave! Beautiful job on the salmon.
    I have to try this Yoshida's you guys are all in love with.
  9. Looks like you got it all right, including the wood! Alder is THE wood for salmon--all I will ever use.

    The salmon looks great. I agree on the wood also. All I use on salmon is Alder. Gives it a great flavor on the salmon.

    Looks awesome!

    Did you take salmon to certain temp?

    If you didn't have alder, is another wood acceptable for salmon?

    I would think maple or birch would work as well.
    Not sure if cherry would be a bit much or if something like apple would work if no alder available.
