Maple Butter Salmon Filets (pix)

These were goooooood!  :)  Thoroughly enjoying my new table too.  :)  The salmon got dusted down with some BBQ rub, then grilled skin side down for awhile.  Then flipped the filets over and removed the skin with some grilling tongs.  Then gave that side a dusting of rub.  Then basted with some Maple Butter a couple times while on the BGE until they hit 150 internal temp.  Then drizzled on a little bit more maple butter when finished.  Oh yeah, they were grilled direct at about 325 deg f with just lump....no smoking wood added.

    Looks good. I cooked salmon last night also. Used a simple brine for 15 minutes and wow, it made all the difference. 4 tbs kosher salt to 2 qts water. Will be the only way forward for me.

    A little well done for my tastes, but that does look and sound fabulous. Seen plenty of recipe's for a maple butter or maple syurp salmon but have never tried it.

  • Awsome now that looks dang good.   Good cook. I usually use honey on my salmon,  but I may need to check into this.

  • Did you cook with the lid open or closed?

  • Was the 325 grate temp, or dome temp?

    Thx a lot, fellas'! Your checks are not in the mail, but I still 'preciate it. ;)

    @Firemedic183, that was the dome temp. Hope you get the chance to make it! Too simple but so delicious! Healthy too. Except for the maple and butter I guess. ;) But at least it's just a "glaze" of the unhealthy stuff.

    That is why I am asking so many questions. That looks absolutely delicious!! I am new to egging, and I think I might have to try this soon. Did you make the maple butter yourself, or did you get it at the store?

    Just make it yourself. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter and then stir in 3 tablespoons of maple syrup. Pure maple is the best, but other syrups will work in a pinch. :)

    I just did some Atlantic salmon last week that I really liked, but it wasn't the best I've ever had. Do you know what kind you had? Hey - my 100th post!

    Thx guys!

    @ddegger, the package didn't say where it was from. It did say "Publix of Lexington" though. :) Congrats on the 100th post!

    @U_tarded, I love the height! It's just right! :D

    That looks too good!  I like the idea of removing the skin mid cook.  It comes off nice and clean once it is hot, and you get to season both sides.  The color is just beautiful inside and out!


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Wow @Dyal_SC, your pictures looks outstanding. I can never get good pictures of flame. Salmon looks killer. I think that is what we are having tomorrow.

    @Dyal_SC great looking Salmon bud!   I wish I could get my oldest son to not run away from the table the moment I mention any type of fish....I blame that on my mother in law :)

    @EddieK76, it's always the fault of the in laws....especially the mother in laws. ;) Just cube the salmon up and tell your son it's something cool, like alligator or rattlesnake. :)
