How to Smoke Salmon – July 2010 Newsletter


Hello and welcome to the July 2010 edition of the smoking meat newsletter. This month, I would like to turn the focus toward smoking salmon. We won't exactly be cold smoking it but we won't be smoking it hot at 225 degrees like we normally do most other meats either.
