    Let me be the first to tell you how good that looks. Also how expensive those blocks of salmon appear to be. Beautiful job. Now if it tastes as good as it looks, you are in. ;)

    Hey Ross, been thinking I havent seen your posts for a while, guess you been traveling. That salmon looks good and my that is one major chunk of fish. If your used to salmon done quicker and a nice glaze, the smoked is way different. I'm not a salmon person, and I have been doing some lately with a nice Hawwian glaze I got found at Albersons. Been getting rave reviews from the younger crowd, strange but true.

    Looks delicious. I've done this with bluefish before but not salmon yet. Definitely on my list of things to try.
