Salmon Jerky

Recommended Posts

I take the salmon in cut it up into narrow long slices about the width of my finger or smaller, then I brine in a freezer bag for 24 hours. (Brine is just, kosher salt, brown sugar and soy sauce, and a little hot sauce). After the brine, I place on racks for the smoker and sprinkle some hot seasoning on the fish or what ever you like. Then smoke for about 1-2 hours with apple, alder, or cherry wood. ( I have a luhr jenson big chief) this smoker only goes to about 180 degrees, so the cooking time takes a long time. After smoking for 1-2 hours, I just let it keep cooking for another 10 hours until the fish has almost dried out.

People love it and makes a great snack.

looks awesome. Only question is are some bigger than your finger length ? They look big. I'm sure they are delicious though !

Another option is to take what you smoke, cut it into small pieces and mix it with cream cheese for a cracker dip.
