startek it’s a very easy recipe, an old guy told me how to do it. He said if you do it this way it will turn out perfect every time. It really works and it’s simple.
4 cups of brown sugar
1 cup kosher salt
Dry rub salmon in a container and cure for 12 hrs. (Add all ingredients to the container) After curing for 12 hrs add 2 quarts of water for 3-4 hrs. (Stir throughly) then remove from brine and rinse. Dry for for an hour or so and smoke at 165 for 3-4 hrs. I always put in fridge overnight so smoke bites hard. I also add cracked black pepper. I used sockeye and that is why it’s so red.
