Put in some local organic (that's what the booth claimed) marigolds opposite my scallions.

Had the medium and mini going when a very impressive storm came through. Had to wait an hour.

So I made a drink.
Local peaches, ice, local vodka (that I added vanilla beans to months ago), and some nice spicy cinnamon.

    If you come to the after party you'll get some of this lovely salmon Kent.
    Streams were running the streets for an hour. Cooled things off nice though.

    Looks like a great day !

    At what temp did you smoke the salmon? What wood and how long?

    Cold-smoked salmon is on my list once the outside temps get cool enough to do it - maybe late fall. ;) :whistle: :lol:

    Did you follow it pretty much according to Wayne's instructions?
