OT - but everyone loves Smoked Salmon

Smoked Salmon -- OK, not quite so OT if you use your Jeep to catch them.

What's your fav way to BBQ it?

I've been slow smoking it on a smoker BBQ with Hickory Chips and wet Thyme and wet Rosemary on the coals.
It good, but I know you guys must have some better ways!

I'm hooked on it!

Back to Jeeping - kinda - one of our Jeep Clubs is having a big BBQ after a run - I've been elected to do the SS.

Nothing beats a good slow cooked smoked meat. Heather and my favorite salmon recipe comes from the book -- Smoke and Spice. It is a great smoker cookbook.

Rub
1/4 c dill -- use fresh dill it is much better than the bottled spice
1/4 c brown sugar
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

3 - 3.5 lb boned salmon tail section (we have made it with filets and it is still tasty)

Optional Mop
1 c cider vinegar
1/4 c oil -- canola or corn

The night before rub the salmon with 2/3 of the mixture. Retain the rest for the mob. Put the salmon in the fridge. Remove 30 minutes prior to cooking. Smoke at 180 to 200 degrees for about 1 hour. Mop at 10 and 30 minutes, if desired.

This is a great, sweat, rub for the salmon. We have only done the tail fillets and we do not mop. I cook it in a side by side pit with the salmon as far from the fire as I can get it.

Never had smoke salmon, but smoked goldeye, tulibee and for the more adventurous, smoked cats (catfish) are great. But those are all ready to eat, you can warm them up, but not required.

All of the above is good, but lets not forget the southern delicacy of fresh, smoked mullet.

Here is how we BBQ filets.
Brush with real melted butter
Sprinkle with herbs of your choice
Cover with Brown sugar
Cook with the skin side down until the fish just starts to flake turn over to meat side for 2 or 3 minutes

JYG - just skip all the trimmings and side dishes. The fish itself isn't very high in calories -- not sure - but the smoke might be?
Besides, fish oil is good for the ticker - ever seen a fish with a pacemaker?

I love it really smoke flavored - more than most people like it. The smokier the better!

That's twice now where brown sugar is mentioned - gotta try that tonite!

Liquid Smoke just doesn't do it.

Someone said that Trader Joes has that smoke sauce - gotta look there - 65 miles each way, but probably worth it!

Thanks so far - any more secret recipies?
