Hot smoked salmon.  All pictures are, clockwise from top, Traeger Sweet Rub, Traeger Souvlaki Rub, and Montreal Rub.

Light coat of EVOO and heavy heaping of rub.  Put on a cookie cooling grid over a drip pan, in the refrigerator uncovered for 24 hours.

Remove for 15-20 minutes before starting smoke.  Squeegee as much rub off the filets as you can with your finger.  Add a very light dusting of the Sweet and Souvlaki rubs back on.  Leave the Montreal alone; it is strong.  The filets will look a little dry and firm.

PS legs up, drip pan with water for humidity, and grid.  I used Oak smoke (because it was all I had), but usually use a fruit wood.

Smoke at 150-200 until internal is 130.  Time seems to be very variable.  Check it at one hour.

Cool, and serve on crackers with cream cheese, onions or cucumbers.

Pics to follow.
