  • Pantsypants I really don't know just yet when it's done cold smoking I will have a better feel for it all I can say is after the cure the fish was quite firm I will let you know after the smoke and I taste it

  • Laserdoc85 I got the JD pellets from Todd Johnson (A-maze-N-Smoker) he owns the company and I smoked ut for about 6 hours ( a bit to long) next time I will try 3 hours it came good but a little too smokey

  • As a newbie, do you have to cure salmon before cold smoking? I have been thinking about attempting salmon.
  • HarveyLytle yes you have to cure the Salmon I cured it in kosher salt & brown sugar

    Informative post. I could really consider doing this but I wouldn't know what cut of salmon to buy? I've almost never bought fish in my life. Is this grocery store salmon or something above that? Thanks in advance, Chris

    Charles is known to put on a fish suit and swim upstream with the salmon for miles until he finds the perfect fish to respectfully pluck from the school.

  • Hibby as far as the salmon wild caught is better then farm raised that being said you want to get a fillet with the skin on
