Hey all,it's been a long week trying to finish a deadline job,working 12 hrs a day and even 8 hrs yesterday :pinch: .I finally had time to fire up an egg today for some wild caught sockeye salmon :woohoo: We were in a hurry(gotta get the kids cleaned up and ready for bed),so I fired up the XL direct to about 375* and put the fish on.I used a little Old Bay(I need to restock all of my Dizzy Pig Rubs and Carnivore Rub) :pinch: Anywho,the weather was just about perfect for grilling,so here's some pix ;)






Time for a quick flip


Then back to skin down



I also cooked some cherry tomatoes stuffed with garlic and a little balsamic vinegar(in foil)for a bit,then added fresh garlic mozzarella balls before serving :woohoo:



OK,here's my ugly,but delicious plate :blush:


Now it's time to retire to my newly reupholstered bar stool for a bit before bedtime :P


and yes,that is lime green duck tape :) My little Cameroo just sat back and watched the rest of us eat :) Good times,thx for lookin ;)

    Would have loved that meal Doug! Fresh flavors for sure! That cuttie is getting so dang big. Keep up the great work!!
    I bought one of these salmon filets for the afterparty. I'll brine Thirdeye style and cold smoke next weekend.
    Be well.

    My Father-In-Law is in Alaska has we speak fishing for salmon and halibut. I can't wait for him to bring it over and say what time do we eat. Looks awesome!

    Looks great, Doug. Love salmon. I would love to see temperatures that low!! 80's? What's that? We've been 100+ for way too long.

    Thanks everyone.I had some alcohol induced computer issues last night and couldn't reply :pinch: Now I'm too tired to reply to everyone :blush: Anyway,I cooked the salmon direct at 375 for about 15 minutes(5 skin down,5 skin up,then 5 more skin down).It was slightly overdone,just the way wifey likes it :)
