Hey all,
I am looking for some fresh new opinions on how to smoke salmon in a

For the type of salmon you want you may want to search for hot smoked
salmon recipe.

"Smoke & Spice" by Cheryl and Bill Jamison contains 5 recipes for smoked
salmon. You can get a copy from "Amazon" without leaving your house. List
price is $32.95. It's a good addition to anyone's bookshelf.
