Subject: RE: BS: RF: Fry Me to the Moon. Cooking advice.

There are a couple of types of smokers, and that can cause some confusion. When I put together my instructions it was for a neighbor with a Weber smoker, and it works faster and hotter than my Little Chief. I love to grill salmon over coals, or smoke it a bit then bake it, but I wouldn't try eating it from my smoker after 40 minutes because it would be barely warm yet. My neighbor will have to figure out how to not overcook her salmon on her Weber, but 40 minutes there might be enough or even too much.

We tend to prefer the smoked salmon cold from the fridge once it has finished smoking, but we also eat it hot right out of the smoker or oven. It isn't like the little smears of pink on plates that are some kind of shi-shi way of serving really soft salmon.
