    <p />Chef Arnoldi ,[p]Did you make a foil chamber for the smoke box, that what it looks like. Do you know the temp in the chamber? I assume 300 was the dome temp. Finally, how did it turn out? Looks like a great idea, thanks for sharing.[p]Chuck <><

    Chef Arnoldi ,
    The salmon was on the grill, under the dome - right? This may sound pretty dumb to those of you who know, but what is the purpose of the dryer exhaust tube???? And is it sealed on the end?

  • you can't do cold smoking in the BGE, so i came up with the idea of divering the hot smoke via a long aluminum dryer hose with the hope of getting the smoke cool enough so as not to cook the salmon. I used 3 sheets of aluminum foil that were folded together at the long edge to form a wider foil. i placed the cured salmon on an oven tray which was encased in this aluminum foil. on one end i crimped the foil to the hose end while the other end was formed into a an exhast funnel. this allows the cooler smoke to travel through the salmon without raising the temperature to cook it-i kept touching the input side of the tray/hose to make sure it was not getting warm.
    (if you like your laundry smoked - bring it on down :>))[p]by the way this is my second batch of smoked salmon- the first batch was gobbled up by my family, friends & for my lunches (cream cheese on bagel with lox, tomatoe & spme freshly ground black pepper)

  • Chef,
    does that salmon come out moist so you can slice it real thin?
    how did you slice it? Did you wet your knife?

    Check out the archives on There was a discussion (maybe 2 months ago?) on cutting salmon slices for competitions. There were a bunch of great ideas presented, from electric knives to dental floss![p]Beers,
