DIRECTIONS

  • FOLLOW MANUFACTURER'S INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR SMOKER or do the follwing:
  • Place the Alder chips in a small pile in the center of the smoker base.
  • Line the drip pan with heavy foil for easy clean-up & place pan on top of the wood chips.
  • Lightly spray the cooking rack with cooking spary & place in drip pan.
  • Rinse the salmon under cold water & pat dry dry with paper towel.
  • Brush olive oil on top of the salmon.
  • Sprinkle desired amount of seasoning on top.
  • Place salmon on cooking rack -- if more than one filet, be sure there's plenty of space between so the smoke can circulate.
  • Close the smoker lid tightly & place on preheated burner.
  • Cook on MEDIUM heat (or a little lower) for 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat & carefully open the lid.
  • Check for doneness -- salmon should be opaque & flake easily when touched with a fork.
  • ENJOY!
