Smoked Salmon on the YS1500 Pellet Cooker

Smoked salmon is delicious plain, but also adds great flavor to many dishes.

Smoked Salmon
Ingredients 

  • 27 Salmon sides (roughly 36 pounds)
  • Salt
  • Plowboys Fins & Feathers Rub

Direction: 

  1. Cut the fillets in half, rinsed it off and dry brined it
  2. After about 3 hours in the brine, rinsed it off.
  3. Let it sit to air dry and form a pellicle.
  4. Lightly sprinkled some spices on it all.
  5. Put it all on the YS1500 to smoke at 200 degrees

Our cookers are great for instant gratification, sure, but one of the little-known facts about smokers is they are a phenomenal tool for meal planning and making the most out of your grocery budget. Smoking for more than just one meal is a great way to stretch your dollar and your time manning the grill. Our customer service guru Herb recently came across a stellar deal at his local Sam’s Club and shared his method for brining and smoking salmon on the Yoder Smokers community Forum.

Smoked salmon is delicious plain, but also adds great flavor to many dishes… try flaking some over your favorite mac and cheese recipe or mixing with cream cheese and capers for a delicious sandwich spread. Herb used his YS1500 pellet cooker for this project, but this works just as well on the Yoder Smokers YS640, too– you just won’t be able to pack quite as many salmon fillets on it! Vacuum packed salmon keeps well in the freezer and also makes a great gift.
