Re: How We Smoke Alaska Salmon;
The batch was only a one half batch. It takes a lot of brine to cover that much fish. Remember this was for 3 salmon, I should have weighed the meat. I would guess the meat weighed between 12 - 14 pounds. The live weight of the whole fish was 24 pounds. They always come out good, you don't pick the soy sauce out when you taste the fish.
Note: You can substitute some Bar B Q sauce for the Tabasco, or you can slip in some mashed Jalapeņos and juice to spice it up.
We have done some experimenting and like the Bar B Q style also. You gotta kinda eyeball it because you could end up to sweet.
