  • That Dizzy Pig receipt does look simple and good. Thanks for sharing.

    I like to get a whole side, maybe 3-4 pounds. Put it on some heavy duty aluminum foil, skin down.  I fold-up the edges to sorta create a tray to hold juices.  Usually just salt and pepper.  I go raised, indirect at 325-350, and I get some smoke on it.  Cook to desired done-ness.  I go 45-60 minutes.  The skin sticks to the foil - easy to remove the flesh.  I make smoked salmon dip/spread with the leftovers- always a hit.

    Simple salmon marinade: 1/3 cup each of: water, brown sugar, soy sauce.  1/4 cup vegetable oil.  Pepper, salt and garlic to taste.   Marinate filets for an hour or two.  Baste the filets as they cook.   This is a family favorite, lends a savory slightly sweet taste.  Sorry no pics but it does create a nice caramel color.

    I did salmon tonight. Easy weeknight meal. 350-400 with cedar planks. A whole side takes 35-40 minutes. I usually use some Rufus Teague Fish rub.

    Italian Dressing is a very simple, nice marinade for salmon.
