I have a piece of salmon just under a pound in weight, would like to smoke it. Time and temp/direct or indirect.
Thanks,
New Bob

    Try this recipe (link below). This is the best my wife and I ever had (see attached photo link). Very easy to make.

    Big Daddy,
    Thanks, looks great. I don't have any bourbon in the house, so you think it would still be good without it????? I am will to go and get a small bottle if you feel it's important.

    New Bob,
    The bourbon is a nice flavor for the salmon. I was at a buddy's house last week, and helped him mix up a marinade with what he had. We substituted apple brandy, and it was good.
    Can't hurt to have a bottle of bourbon around though! It is good with many foods.
    Cheers!

    Nature Boy,
    I did go out and get a small bottle, the salmon is in Mr. Egg

    I just have to wait till it firms up, to soft to flip. If it fails, I will try again.
    Thanks for the input.

    New Bob,
    No need to flip if going indirect.
    Have fun! Let us know how it comes out....though I think I know already.

    Nature Boy,
    It came out just fine, sorry I didn't see your post till this morning. I'm not used to cooking fish and am still having trouble knowing when it's done. I tried to flip about 30 min. into the cook but it wanted to fall apart, I did get it flipped latter. What's the best way to know when it's done?????????
    Thanks,
    New Bob

    New Bob,
    Good fresh salmon is done whenever you want it to be, and is even good medium rare. Basically when it flakes easily, it is done. Salmon is pretty fatty, and can hang out for a longer cook without drying. Most fish is done just as soon as it flakes easily, and quickly becomes dry if overcooked.[p]When cooking fish direct, I do one flip. Flip before the halfway point of the cook. The earlier you flip, the better the fish holds together. Remove carefully from the grill and its a go.[p]Glad you had a great meal!
