I just got a big green egg as a gift from some friends. I want to use it tonight to cook for a few guests. The girls are fairly picky so I decided to get Salmon. I was curious to see what you would suggest the best way to cook the fish on the grill. Also, what do you suggest for seasoning on the fish.



  • Make sure you let the smoke clear to invisible or light blue before putting the fish on as well.

  • Alternate idea - soak a cedar plank and cook the fish on that.  I put a mixture of brown sugar, ground ginger, soy sauce, veg oil and whisky on them as a marinade.  cook at 350 for about 30 minutes.  Good for salmon steak or filet.

    Have fun!

    I like my salmon low-n-slow about 250º for about an hour, indirect using maple or oak chunks.

    Seasoned with sea salt & fresh ground pepper and a drizzle of maple syrup for the last 15 minutes.

    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

    Tip for you get some grillgrates for your BGE its a must have in my books! Perfect for searing steaks and cooking fish! You don't get any flare ups and nothing sticks to it!
