    Breaking in the beast...

    Bought a Char Griller "Outlaw" this week at Lowes that was an outdoor display that saw too much sun. The money saved paid for all the other trimmings...side fire box, side gas burner, LP conversion and a pro cover.



    After seasoning the cast iron for 3 hours at 300+ degrees with palm oil and soldering hickory chips, I fired up my specialty---grilled salmon. I prep with olive oil and some salt and pepper, anything more would be heresy...



    ...about 3 minutes on each side then plate it, cover it with heavy foil for about 15 minutes to finish cooking. Even the local restaurant chefs speak my name in hushed, reverential tones when it comes to my salmon.

    Good luck with the new smoker. It looks like it would be a lot of fun to play with.

    Being a New England Yankee like I am I never knew that you could cook salmon any other way than "forever". Then I went on a trip and dined with a couple from Washington State who taught me the errors of my ways.

    Now I am a plank cooker and I like my salmon like I like my beef steaks.

    Is the skin still on the other side? I dont buy it cause I dont know weather to leave it on or take it off.

    if you are going to smoke it low and slow leave the skin on and down. if you are going for a quick grill i take it off and flip it halfway through.


    i usually smoke my salmon and steelhead.

    heres a link to a good way to do it.

    I grill the inside first, then the skin side. The skin makes a great crispy layer that you can leave on the plate or wolf down like me.

    I use the side burner for pots of beans, steaming crabs or boiling crawfish.

    Would a stick of melted butter with 4 cloves of crushed garlic and a half cup of soy sauce marinated and basted while on the barbie be heresy? Please report back with your verdict.

    Heresy involves gooey sauces and other like coatings
