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 picrel
Anons, it's the most delicious smoked salmon I ever had.
Entire thing cost me $20.
What are you smoking anons?

Looks 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 moist

pic related is more or less what it should look like after a cold smoke.

I 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.

Consider 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.

Ya 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.

You put a really cheap price on your labor and inputs if you think you saved any money smoking it yourself lol.

Ain't running the smoker at work, bitch. A man's leisure time is his own to value as he pleases.

>> No.18804241

Yes, but opportunity cost is still part of the equation even if it is leisure time.

>> No.18804494

Buddy 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.
Place where wizards come from.
Opportunity for what? Sit around and jerk off? I enjoy cooking and making random doohickeys. That's what I'm gonna do.
>inb4 more work

>> No.18804577

Well 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.

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.
