    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.

    Any wood works well as long as it's alder... And only alder.

    That is the standard, I believe, and if it works well, don't fix it.

    That might as well be straight from my grandpa's mouth.

    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.

    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.

    You know fly fishermen are classy when not one of them will tell the "eat the plank" joke

    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.

    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.
