    Salmon on a offset smoker, LSG

    How should I smoke salmon on a 20x36 offset LSG smoker? I have the fire box grate, smoker grate, and griddle.

    Thank you

    No offset but did some on my pellet a while back. Brined whole King, cut up, with water, salt, garlic powder and brown sugar for 4 hours and dried it off . Into the frig over night on cooling racks for a pellicle. Cooked it with apple and pecan pellets at about 180F. Skin side down on Frog mats basted after 1st hour (and every hour after) with apple juice until IT of 130F-140F.

      This, basically. I'd skip the apple juice basting if you don't feel like it. You're trying to smoke it low (not cold smoke, but closer to 200F if you can) and then pull it at just done (so 135ish)

    Thank you. This is what I was looking for.


      To let you all know.
      My daughter seasoned up the salmon. What? Idk.
      But I smoked it with apple wood at about 200┬░ pit temp.
      Removed it at 135 IT.
      It came out wonderful.

      Thank you


        I smoke salmon no higher than 200. Usually take it to 135-140. You done good. Wish you had pics to share.

          Well sorry but we liked it so much we ate it all before I even thought about photos.
          But I will be making more I'm sure.

        We like it with some fresh dill and seasoning, skin side down on a frogmat cooking at 210 until 130 IT. We also add thinly sliced onions to the top just like when we were back in MI along Lake Michigan eating some freshly caught salmon.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
