    Having multiple user acct's is a violation of site rules, and will be
    enforced without reservation should I discover it.

    Just sayin.............

    There is a good chance you will not read this lol...

    Tasted really good!! I did 1:3 sugar salt ratio. I think i will try 1:4 on my next smoke.
    I kept 2 fillets and the rest given to friends. I should have kept more. It seems to taste better after it sits on the fridge.

    Hot smoking cooks fish
    cold smoking is part of a curing process.
    Sorry HJ ..........if its using smoke its smoking..........efficiently, effectively or not..........its smoking.
    I'm sure you have tongue in cheek when you are typing my friend.

    If you are unfortunate & have a low salt diet, lemon & lime juice etc performs a similar curing action to brine.
    Yes curing action ( killing bacteria, & most other pathogens etc ) ..........not pellicle formation. The combination of sugar & salt draws the cellular body fluid ( protein)out of the flesh into the sugary syrup from the brine to form the sticky pellicle layer that absorbs the smoke resin & assists it to absorb into the flesh. The absence of an effective pellicle minimises smoke resin penetration into the flesh & produces a very high resin concentration on the surface of the flesh.
    If you are unfortunate to have a low salt diet you can copy the oven baking technique of 'basting' to assist smoke resin penetration into the flesh being smoked. Baste at least every hour or so of the smoking cycle with a sugar syrup.............maple syrup if you like that flavour or a sugar syrup .....plain, brown, or infused with herbs or other flavorings of your fancy.
    Many are the basting concoctions / 'marinades' brushed/basted onto meats in cooking/smoking processes.

    The above info is provided as a past director of a fish processing company with an award winning smokehouse here in Oz.

    My commiserations to everyone who must maintain a low salt diet...........for optimal smoking results you just need to provide an alternative to the pellicle formation. Speaking plain.......its not as good as a proper pellicle but a heck of a lot better than smoking bare.

    Iyaman, wifey here stopped painting her nails years ago.... she does the nail salon thing.& no daughters..............I have to rummage in the beauty shops/ chemists myself to get my nail polish.

    I don't go fishing in freshwater without a selection in my kitbag............its such a simple solution for customising lures on the fly.

    in the workshop the airbrush colours & resin tints are in open display racks.............the nail polish collection is hidden in the rafters............rumours can start so easily.............years ago I was sprung in the DIY brassiere section perusing lace patterns for spray painting templates & it took a while for some people to forget why I was really there in that section. :oops::oops::oops::oops:
