Smile Salmon

This probably has been asked before but....

You all have a great way of smoking a salmon fillet using a board on the bbq. I think it is a cedar board, correct me if I am wrong.

If I cannot find one of these, is there any other substitute I can use and what is the technique.

Would love to try this out with DH on the weekend on the 6 burner.

The only other thing I can think of is a stove-top smoker. Follow the directions for proper operation and cook for about 20 minutes.

OR, you could do an indirect method of cooking (one side turned off on your grill) and use some wood chunks, hickory, alder, or mesquite. You soak your wood chunks for about 30 minutes (chips just don't have much flavor unless you are using your stove-top smoker), remove from water and place directly on the hot coals. Place your fish on the other side and cook until done.

I endorse the stove-top smoker. Buck and I have two of the Cameron models. The small one and a large one. Love them. Easy to use and don't "smoke" up the house as many are afraid of. I've seen them at our area Ace Hardware store.

Can smoke everything from poultry, meats, fish, cheese, veggies.

Cath, they are indeed cedar planks, and they can indeed be tricky to find. **sometimes** your local hardware store will carry them very cheaply as cedar shingles, but they MUST be completely raw (untreated!!!! dried, "kiln dried" only!) which can be hard to find, and a really bad idea if they're not.

fortunately, they're pretty darn easy to find online. a search on amazon gives you plenty of options to pick from.

Your big home supply stores have cedar siding - like fireweaver said - just make sure it's untreated. For a small fee they will also cut them in smaller pieces for you. For any leftover you could give them as a host/hostess gift the next cookout you go to. You also need to soak these before using.

a roasting dish, a cooling rack, some woodchips or shavings and some tinfoil works very well also. just sit it ontop of your heated bbq for aporx 15-20 mins depending on the size of your fillet.

thank you all for your advice. I will check with Bunnings, our nationwide hardware supermarket, on the weekend. DH says that they probably would have some, although whether they will be treated or not is our mission for the weekend. Otherwise I might check with smaller distributors and see what I can come up with. I have seen Sandi Richard do it and thought it would be sooo tasty. We both love fish and seafood.

I have just scouted the internet, apparently we can get cedar smokeboards here but they also have made bluegum smokeboards as well, all able to be purchased on the net. But I will try our local hardware first. Once again thanks for the advice, I will post when I have successfully tried them out.
