    Good day of smoking.
    First did a TriTip for lunch

    Then a lamb leg and sliced thin for sandwiches.

    Then ended the day smoking a slab of bacon that I’ll slice up in the morning.

    First time making Canadian Bacon and it was a big hit for breakfast this morning. I used buckboard bacon cure and pork tenderloins for this. Cured for 4 days and smoked for 5 hrs with applewood. Refrigerated over night and sliced just before heating.

    2 hours for cheddar
    2.5 hours for the spicy cheese
    I started out at at 4 hours but after it sets for a week in a vacuum seal bag (like wine )
    It gets stronger and it is to much for me
    But I smoke for some guys that want 5 hours of smoke and love it
    They say to never let the cheese get to
    90* but I say 80 degrees
    Over 80 the cheese releases to much oil and sucks up the smoke
    I keep mine under 70*

    yes and Alaskan Salmon has much more flavor than Atlantic Salmon, I can eat it raw if it's not been frozen.

    hh - Does it taste better than all of this ?

    probably so hh - you have impressive strings, but i'll go for 'stillhunter's... his are all cooked! lol...

    what do u have there? some big catfish, crappie and small mouth bass?... I have catfish, perch and lm bass on my place...

    personally, I am not sure any salmon is better tasting than any other... other than some of that Copper River Alaskan smoked candied salmon. :numberone: being from the Pacific NW I have eaten salmon most ways. it is my favorite fish, followed by good fresh north Atlantic cod. i'd be ok with crappie being #3 for me. salmon? - I like it all! down here I can get unfrozen Atlantic salmon nxt day air... really good! next to candied smoked, I like poached best. here is some we did on the grill this past summer... I just completed a small table-top type bbq unit restoration. I wont grill on it. primary purpose is to slow cook and poach salmon in tin foil packets...

    good same day caught steelhead is a melt in your mouth proposition, too. Seattle - I have had Green River steelhead that was very, very good!

    steak is great, but i'll take salmon any day!

    Can’t find any pictures.
    I will have to start doing that
    Deep fry with mushrooms is my favorite
    Grilled is good and slow smoked is good too
    But I tend to over cook it a little because l don’t want to get sick on it and not like anymore!
    Never tried the cold smoke with brine I stay at 190* or above on all the fish

    My daughter bought this salt brick for my birthday and so far I really like it. A few days ago I did a flank steak and some chicken breast, tonight was pork tenderloins. These tenderloins turned out so good.
