    This post is the one time I wish I lived back in Ucluelet. Poof gone. Back in Horsefly.
    Thanks Nog.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    We used to smoke quite a lot of salmon some years back, nothing on the scale that Nog does. We used the big chief and little chief smokers with great success. The trick is to keep them in the boxes you bought them in and cut a door in the top or front depending on the model. Makes a big difference in the performance of the unit and the outcome of your product. That being said I do have a couple of nice big venison roasts sitting in a brine for corned venison. Should be ready by the 25th. Can't wait.

    With the RH being basically 100%, it took three days for the strips to dry properly. Thankfully the temperatures stayed low!





    The squirter bottle in the upper left of that first picture is loaded with 50% Maple Syrup, and 50% Black Rum. The Glaze.

    Applied:





    Should set up quite nicely overnight, then into the smoker for a spell.
    Next load thawing out for Choppy Whacky tomorrow...

    And on it goes...

    While that first run of Candy was smoking, I set to getting the next batch ready:





    Takes hours to do, but by the end of that shift Round Two managed a successful splash down:





    No sooner finished that when the run in the smoker suggested it was time. So out of the big box and on top of a house freezer overnight:





    You can sort of see that they indeed are translucent and very much like the Gummy Bear product they got their name from.


    A better boo:








    Both The Lady & I concur - another super fine product!

    Makes it all worth the effort!


    Today is bag and tag day, then prep the screens for their next go.


    Be nice to have a day "off" tomorrow!!



    Cheers,
    Nog
