Smoking Pinks

  1. What is the preferred wood for smoking pink salmon? Also, I have been offered oak chips for the purpose of smoking pinks and have never heard of anyone using oak for smoking anything, comments please.
  2. Any wood works well as long as it's alder... And only alder.
  3. That is the standard, I believe, and if it works well, don't fix it.
  4. joint paper hard to keep lit tho
  5. Debarked alder and dry brine
    A comercial buddy saw hordes off the coast two weeks ago
    Four to five fish in the air at one time

    Getting stoked
    Time to clean the chum skua off the smoker racks

  7. That is not always true though, I have smoked with Dried Cedar and it was nice... Tasted alot like a hamster cage. I think I might try Wormwood on Chums next year because the only way I would eat a Chum is if there were a possibility that I might become intoxicated enough to not realize what I had just done.

  10. Thanks guys, Alder it is.
  11. You need to not puss out on Paul Deiter's smoked pink GTG this time around.
  12. I like alder but when I want to mix it up a bit, I'll use cherry. Reminds me that I need to go get some more.
  13. I was there last time
  14. I best go get some sort of memory booster!!
  15. Beveridge Place pub. You and I discussed your fondness of the pickled pink.
  16. One pan alder and one pan apple.
  17. Guess I am diffrent I like maple or fruit woods to smoke pinks. I keep a maple tree around just to smoke and barbacue with.
    What I really would like to try is cannng some this year for a great sandwich spread
  18. You know fly fishermen are classy when not one of them will tell the "eat the plank" joke
  19. The key ingrediant is to catch, bleed, and ice all within a couple of minutes. I like the Luhr-Jensen recipie of 2/3 apple and 1/3 cherry. It adds a sweetness to the fish that is excellent. It also helps that I keep my apple and cherry prunings for smoking various protiens. I am a woodworker so I have used many different woods and it's fun to experiment.
  20. I've been throwing some plum chips in with the apple alder mix too with fine results. We'll have to do the Beveridge Place gig again it was fun.
