Hello, I hate the Antichrist.Grocery store increased smoked salmon prices again, $2/oz.>got filet from fishmonger>brined in 1/3 cup salt, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1qt water overnight>jurry rigged a cold smoke generator with a hotplate and an old pan filled with hickory bits.>put it in the Webber>it actually maintained smoke and 80 degrees the whole time>6h later got hungry and pulled put picrelAnons, it's the most delicious smoked salmon I ever had.Entire thing cost me $20.What are you smoking anons?
I’ve been thinking of curing some salmon since I don’t have a a smoker, I love me some cured and/or smoked fish bros
>>18803124>Hello, I hate the Antichrist.I also hate trump
>>18803124Looks a pretty pale and wet for a 6 hour cold smoke anon.Did you let it dry before smoking? Like putting it on a rack overnight in a cold space, even better if there's a fan blowing over it.This develops a coating over the salmon that the smoke particles stick to ("patina"). They have a hard time sticking to moistpic related is more or less what it should look like after a cold smoke.
>>18803227I let is dry for a couple of h in the fridge, surface was dry to touch and has a bit of a light crust feel to it compared to middle.I'll try a longer dry anon. Thanks for the tips.It tastes about 3x smokier than picrel, but now you got me thinking we can bump those numbers up.
>>18803164Consider picrel if you are looking for a 2-4 person smoker. It's a very optimized product, least pain in the ass grill I ever had.Surprisingly stable temp control.
>>18803370Ya I'm glad it still got smokey. You want it to almost be rubbery on the surface, this will ensure that it will last longer in the fridge too.
>>18803124You put a really cheap price on your labor and inputs if you think you saved any money smoking it yourself lol.
Doing baby backs on Saturday, then wings and a frozen pizza on Sunday for the lulz
wtf is an oz?
>>18804125>wtf is an oz?Ounce. Just under 30 grams.
>>18803961Ain't running the smoker at work, bitch. A man's leisure time is his own to value as he pleases.
>>18804219Yes, but opportunity cost is still part of the equation even if it is leisure time.
>>18803961Buddy do you think I sat under it smoking a carton of cigarettes and blowing on it for 6h? This was about effort as making a pot of plain pasta.>>18804125Place where wizards come from.>>18804241Opportunity for what? Sit around and jerk off? I enjoy cooking and making random doohickeys. That's what I'm gonna do.>inb4 more work
>>18803961>>18804241Well if the plan is to be at home on a Saturday then you're not making any money anyway. Therefore nothing is lost. Smoking 4 lb of salmon for yourself for just $20 (retail about $100) is good savings in that scenario. No opportunity is lost because most people aren't making money on their day off.
>>18803124>Hello, I hate the AntichristI also hate Zelensky but do try poaching fresh salmon in beet borscht you'll thank me later
>>18803227fellow anitchrist here, looks so goddamn good anon, good work fag.
>>18804577>Saturday then you're not making any money anyway.Dude I have a mega sweet gif that pays me to basically be on call, and I get called for an hour or two a day. It's enough for upper-middle class existence for a family of five on my single income. I know I can make heaps more money, but I'll actually have to work then, maybe I do that once the kids are out of toddler phase.I also don't want them growing up wealthy because every single person I know that had that growing up, turned into a massive faggot.
>>18805463>Dude I have a mega sweet gif that pays meyeah, me too
>>18803227It's a pellicle, not a fucking patina.
>>18804241Lmao hustle and grind tik tok really did a number on you.
>>18805666kek you're right, my bad.>>18804636Have another pic
>>18805666kek you're right, my bad>>18804636Have another pic then
>>18805863seriously thought that was sliced ruby red grapefruit from the thumbnail
>>18805666Nothing wrong with iron fortification in your salmon
>>18804241Go suck off daddy Tate in jail, faggot.
>>18803124Salmon lot's of it, catch it, smoke it sell it for an outrageous price
>>18804241Thinking about how you could have been making money in leisure time means it's not leisure time. Let go
>>18805847I've never used Tik Tok, I just have a degree in economics.
>>18806599You have a degree in autism.
>>18806599>spends 4 years and tens of thousands on a BA>lectures others about opportunity costI just can't
