Wet-cured, cold-smoked Coho salmon


Salmon filets/steaks

To each 1 gallon water add the following

19 grams cure#1

375 grams coarse kosher salt

150 grams brown sugar

300 grams white sugar

9 grams pepper (black, or white)

9 grams allspice

9 grams bayleaf

6 grams mace

5 tbsp dark rum


Make enough brine to completely cover the salmon. The more salmon you use, the more brine you will need. Mix the brine ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil on the stove. Let cool, then refrigerate until chilled. Place salmon in a large container and our in enough cold brine to completely cover the salmon. if it floats to the top, use a weight, such as a plate, to hold it under the surface. Place container in the refrigerator. Let brine for 2 days per inch of thickness at the thickest spot. Most filets will brine for two days. Steaks may take longer. When brined, remove from brine, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Place on a rack in a single layer, skin side down for filets. Place back in the refrigerator, uncovered, overnight to allow a pellicle to form. The pellicle is a shiny, sticky film that forms on the surface of the salmon. This helps the smoke to adhere to the fish.

Smoke for around four hours with your favorite wood. I used oak for this batch.

Cured and headed for the smoker...

Post-smoke salmon...

6 pounds, 2 ounces, vacuum packed and headed to the fridge/freezer.

The first one but a cross draw is handy for an eight incher. No conchos though, that's just bling.

The disc on the second holster is an old Mexican peso.

Now for the important questions...

1. Porterhouse steak, or grilled chicken breast filet wrapped in homemade pepper-rum bacon, or tea-smoked Ahi tuna, or mesquite smoked back ribs with peach bbq sauce?

2. Fresh sauteed asparagus, or steamed broccoli with extra sharp-cheddar cheese sauce?

3. Homemade peach upside down cake, or homemade NY style cheesecake with homemade butter rum sauce?

My son has a job interview with Intel on Tuesday. They are flying him up to Oregon, putting him up in the Marriott, and flying him back after the interview. He got a new suit for the occasion. He looks pretty good in a $1300 dollar suit...

I had a real nice blued heavy frame 45 Colt Ruger Vaquero Bisley 15 or more years ago. Had it a for awhile and traded it off. I wasn't into western guns or BP then. I've looked at replacing it and it seems everything Ruger has gone up in value. They make nice guns but I don't want to give what they are asking.

I'd like to get one of the new Redhawk 45 Colt / 45 acp revolvers and possible a Match Champion but it's not a rush and I'm hoping find a deal on used ones. Back in the early 00's I had S&W 25-5 in 45 Colt that I sold to friend to fund an Uzi right around the time the AW Ban ended. That S&W is another gun that shot up in value right after I sold mine.

Got one. You can see it in the 2nd pic in this thread...,2913.0.html

Stainless, 3rd from top.
