Cleaned out Mr. Egg, put just about 5 small pieces of lump in and started with a cube, then I put a chunk of pecan on top of the lump. Have the grill on and 2 pieces of salmon fillet on one of those small porcelain veggies trays with the holes in it. Coated the tray with a little oil, put lemon and pepper on the salmon. Will try to smoke at low temp., any thoughts as to how long if I can keep the temp. under 160. Pieces are about 4" by 7", maybe 1/2 to 3/4" thick. The kind you get from Costco. I'm just eggsperimenting.

    New Bob,
    At 350* it's about 1 1/2 hours. At 160 +/- I'm not sure maybe 2 - 2 1/2 hours. I'd check it every 20 mins. or so after the 1 1/2 hour mark. Cook it until it flakes and looses that translucent internal appearance.

    Big Daddy,
    Thanks, I have not cooked a lot of fish, so far the egg is holding 160° just fine. At least at the lower temp. I get to enjoy playing with the egg a little longer.

  • New Bob,
    Next time you might try the temp. alot higher. I usually cook about a 3" wide fillet, put a little lemon juice on it, and cover w/ brown sugar. Put it on the Egg for 2 min. a side at about 600 to 700 temp., close lid, and let it sit for 4-5 min. You want to char the sides which keeps it moist on the inside. Just a thought while reading down the posts
