    More information needed. Please include details, any details. It would help to answer your questions. Also if you could stop by roll call and introduce yourself we could give you a proper welcome. Including your general wherabouts in your profile also helps. Happy smoking. timber

    Welcome to the board! For salmon, I just go by the look of it being cooked. What do you want? It could be just gently poached, or bronzed and half-dried for flaking onto crackers.

     Some say 135*, Some say 145*.  I go with 140* knowing that it will cook a little more after you pull it.

    Assuming you are referring to Salmon filets, I typically go, the following, unless weather or something else dictates that I alter my plan:

    1 hour at 130

    1 hour at 150

    1 hour at 165+ until an IT of 140 is met.
