It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Smoking WHOLE Salmon

edited 8:55PM in EggHead Forum
I tried this before...and flopped. But this time I will be without the company of Mr. Beer and want to get it right.
I have a 6.6 lb whole salmon that I will be smoking. I have no alder, but some chunk o cherry. Will cherry wood be ok?
Also, what about puting seasonings on the fish...what do u reccomend?
And finally how long do u think it will take at 220?
Thanx for the help.

    Smkin' Todd,[p]Hey, I'm probably too late for this, my guess is that you cooked on Sunday. My brother had a baby this weekend so I was detained at the hospital a bit as the new uncle. Life is great.[p]Anyway, I use cherry wood to smoke my salmon and its awesome. Not nearly as bitter as mesquite makes it in my opinion. The whole salmon will be great, just head it, clean it and scale it and its ready to go. I would do it indirect at 220 and would plan on about 4-5 hours. Dont dry it out. I did two fillets this weekend, skin on, indirect, that I did for 4 hours @ 225-250 and it was about 1/2 hour too long but they were out of this world. Check out the post above. Get ready for some good eats. Good luck, if I haven't missed the cook already.[p]Troy
