How To Smoke Salmon

A tutorial on how to make your own smoked salmon filets at home including deboning, brining to prevent albumin formation (the white gunk that forms on top of the fish), forming a pellicle for better smoke adhesion, setting up and controlling a fire on your grill or smoker, and knowing when it’s ready to eat.

I caught this fish (and many others) while on a two-day chartered fishing trip to Sturgeon Bay, WI where we fished Lake Michigan catching chinook salmon and even a rainbow trout.

I smoke them on my Kamado Joe Big Joe in this video, but the process applies to any smoker.
