Smoked Salmon - my best effort yet.

Caught anything lately? Post up how you cooked it here and if it was a success. Doesn't only have to be fish....

Smoking it at 60* is enought to cook the meat and preserve it apparently.
Well past the edge, almost at the point of no return.

I bought a small grill, just need to make a lid for smoking

will have to buy some chips and give it a go, I used to cold smoke years ago, chicken was my favored species but then I used to pile 20 eggs under broody hens so having a spare chook or 10 wasn't an issue :evilgrin: tried turkey eggs once but the hens tend get upset when they don't hatch at 21-22 days :lol:

Just use an old deep baking tray turned upside down for a lid. Use some foil around it to fill the gaps if you need to.

I've never kept salmon as a lot of people I spoken to have said it's no good but this thread has got me interested. Might have to try this with the kamado joe. Cheers Reeling for digging this one up.

An old You Tube video I made about smoking fish without a smoker. Excuse the quality, it was a while ago.




Don't use the wife's good baking dishes. :roll:
