    LadyYager's Note:

    My husband and I manufacture meat smokers and we of course use our own product regularly. We had tried several smoked salmon recipes but this one tasted the best to us. The recipe was given to my husband by a co-worker.

      I have been meaning to write a review on this for a while now. I found this recipe last year and made it for the guys at deer camp. Everyone loved it. My one friend who is a chef thought it was so good that he traded me his lox recipe for this one. This brine is the absolute best. So much flavor. For smoking I used cherry wood. Made it about 5 times now and I will continue to use. Thanks for the great recipe.

      I've done this recipe several times using various salmon types. It's awesome. We settled on omitting the salt, as the soy sauce has enough of it. Thanks much for posting this...amazing recipe.

      Used this on Steel head and Sturgeon. Omitted the Tabasco. A great change from the usual. Thanks for sharing.
