Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

Salmon

Any suggestions on how I should cook a salmon filet?

    My vote is for a good rub and then baste with a 50/50 mixture of maple syrup and butter while its grilling. Direct at about 350 deg dome temp. :)

    On the Egg ;-) I like to cook salmon on a cedar or alder plank. Some maple syrup and dill and some Tom Douglas salmon rub.

    I agree with Dyal on the setup and cook temp. I prefer just a little salt and pepper and a hollandaise sauce. I've got cedar planks in my garage but I've not tried them yet. That is a popular technic too.

    Cook to 140 degrees internal.  Glaze or glaze and rub your desired flavors before cooking.  Indirect 350 ish.  Skin side down on a cedar plank or double piece of HD foil if no plank.

    Put a good sweet rub on it.  Put it on a cookie cooling rack, tented with foil (allowing air circulation) in the fridge overnight.  Take the tent off in the morning for a couple hours, then allow to sit at room temp for an hour.

    Hot smoke using a plate setter, and a mild wood like apple, at 180 until the albumin begins to flow.

    Serve hot, or refrigerate until chilled.  Serve on crackers with cream cheese and cucumber.
