A fellow OFFer, has inquired about whether peeps like Alder or Apple wood for smoking Salmon.

I'm curious to know, if anyone has any other wood "flavors" that they like for Salmon?

Hi, I've used apple, cherry and plum from the yard, oak. alder and apple from the woodpile, and for beef, sometimes add in 5% of an aromatic like cedar/pine/fir.

The brine can have a great effect, honey, tabasco, brown sugar, salt, worcestershire, chile powders, soy sauce, all come in differing varieties worth trying, and now I'm
hungry, with nothing smoked, that isn't in a can :(
