Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Hot Smoked Salmon

Did a hot smoked salmon.  Placed the fillet on a cooking cooling rack nested in a cookie sheet, applied homemade sweet rub liberally and refrigerated uncovered overnight.  While the Egg stabilized in the 180's I pulled the fillet and used my finger to scrap off excess rub.  Put it in the oak smoke and held temp at 183 for 45 minutes, glad I checked because it was just under 130 internal.  Tented loosely and into the fridge to cool.  I will post plated pics when it is cool.  We serve on crackers with cream cheese and cucumber.

Check out how much liquid came off in the night.

Note, sometimes we marinate, and that generally takes twice as long to come to internal temp.
