    *drool* This was my first time using a smoker, and I'm so happy i chose this recipe to try out my skills. I will be making this again!

    I wish we would have smoked a billion more pounds of this. So good.

    Great easy to follow. I used honey for the glaze and it was great

    This is the recipe my husband learned how to smoke salmon with. It is awesome, and relatively easy to follow.

    In the brine, I added a cup and a half of white wine. I threw on 5 stems of rosemary and smoked it for over 3 hours - starting at 140 and going up to 170. I needed a roasting pan beneath the fish to catch all the juice. LOL. Would definitely make this again.
