Saturday Night Salmon

Thanks to some tips on the forum and some other advice, I decided to try some salmon (thanks to boatbum, BRush00, and this post).  The only fish I had done up to this point was tilapia.  So, I got a couple nice farm-raised salmon filets (decided not to spring for the wild).  I got my LBGE up to 400 dome temp, and I used three half bricks to raise my grate to gasket-level.  On the salmon, I rubbed some EVOO and equal parts Old Bay and brown sugar.  5 minutes on top, and they were ready to flip.  5 minutes on skin side, at which point I decided to throw on some asparagus as well (coated in Zesty Italian dressing, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper).  The result ended up very nice.  I will definitely do this again.  I forgot to take pics along the way, but I do have the final result.

    The salmon looks great. I really like to cook my fish on the grill. It cooks fast and taste great.
