    Looks great. I cook that dish once a week for my family. Do you ever brine the salmon? I tried it and it makes a big difference.

  • No I have never brined. We usually do salmon as a hot smoke.  Tell me about brining.

    The brine is simple salt and water. 2 qts water and 4 tbls kosher salt. Dissolve the salt and brine the salmon for 15 minutes. Rinse well and cook as normal. I cook 400 raised direct for approx 15 min. Really adds a depth of flavor (sorry for the food network comment).

  • I will have to try that.  My grilling salmon (as opposed to hot smoke) is exactly the same, raised, 400, 15 minutes.

    Looks great. I'm going to try this over the weekend. Do you guys add any wood chips or chunks? Do you ever use planks?

    Does 15 minutes of direct grill time dry the salmon out?  How thick are your salmon steaks?

  • Looks really good.  Two of my egg favorites.  I've never tried brining, but will have to now.  I usually use alder planks on my salmon.  Like it better than cedar.

  • Grilling the fillets, skin side down and without turning doesn't dry them out.  Our prefered method is hot smoking, at 180 for an hour.  That takes overnight preparation though.

    Looks great doc!  What did you season it with?  


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

    Webber Garlic & Herb.  Works pretty well with fish.  The left overs were a hit with the The Spouse's fellow teachers.
