September Smoked Salmon


A small first experiment.  1/4 c white sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/2 c kosher salt, and lots of cracked black pepper.  I rinsed and dried the lovely piece of salmon and wrapped it, and weighed it down between heavy glass in the cold box.  Tomorrow I will smoke it. I’m going to try some different recipes.


I am reading Norman Maclean’s “Young Men and Fire,” a story about Storm jumpers who lost their lives in the Mann Gulch fire not far from here many years ago. Maclean’s  descriptions of the young men make them seem like kids I might know. It’s a relief our fires in the area have calmed with the rain.
