    Re: They’re herrreree

    Yeah, I have a brine that I soak it in for 1 to 2 days (length depends on the size of the meat chunks). Dry on racks for 4 to 6 hours to get a nice pellicle, and then into the smoker for a few hours as low as I can keep it heat wise. I let it heat up the last 20 - 30 minutes to get the meat temp up to 165 to kill any critters.

    With all the processing and the work to prep and smoke, I can sure appreciate people that live a subsistence lifestyle. It's a whole hell of a lot of work.
    Taking off and flying is easy, it's the landings that will kill you.



    Oh Yeah!...Salmon!...Everything else is just practice.

    Are you brining before smoking?

    Re: They’re herrreree

    I got these on Saturday. The big striper I'm guestimating at about 6 pounds.

    And then I refined and nailed my shad deboning technique on Sunday. This will be so nice for smoking.
    Before, when I just got a bunch of small pieces, they would always stick to the racks. That should be reduced now that the skin will be on the rack.

    You've given me an idea, going to try beads/grub vs standard jighead/grub later today.
