Talking cold smoking some sockeye salmon

found some nice sockeye salmon and it was time to smoke a side of it..


brined for 2 days in Pickle salt, Brown sugar and Morton Tender Quick



rinsed off the brine and patted dry.. ready to brush on some Calvados



here the Calvados I used..




and it's time to dust on some spices..




let it rest overnight in the fridge to form a pelicule and starting the cold smoke the next day .. with a sieve of Apple wood sawdust..
note : although my smoker is a gasser - for "cold smoking" I use no heat - I just only start the sawdust in the sieve..



checking in after ~ 2 hours..


and almost done after 3 1/2 hours..
as you can see here - with that large rectangular sieve -
here for this session, I started the sawdust on both sides and this is how it looks after 3 1/2 hours -
so if you only start that sawdust on one side you will easily get 8 hours of smoking out of one load of sawdust !!
whoever came up with that idea - it works great !!



I took the salmon out of the smoker after 4 hours and cut up some the next morning for breakfast..





and here you go - some bagels, Cream cheese and home made cold smoked sockeye salmon for breakfast !! mmmmm....

Pictures don't work. Might be my work though. Sounds very good. I need to get the rest of my sockeye cleaned out of the freezer by August when I go back to Alaska. Will have to try this method too.

Looks tasty! I kinda wondered from time to time if you could "cold" smoke like that.

Nice job!

Heck yeah that's the way to do it! You don't need any fancy equipment to put out good smoke. Looks delicious!
