Fishing relaxes me. It's like yoga, except i still get to kill something.

I've been using a masterbuilt for almost a year now, haven't had anything come out bad yet. I just ordered the cold smoke kit. To cold or slow smoke salmon, should I have any temp from the main smoker? How much longer should it take?
The salmon I have done so far was at about 160-180 degrees and took around 5-7 hours. Also does anyone have a brine that doesn't use as much salt?

For cold smoke, you should not go over 100 degrees

BUT it does not get as low as I'd like, though they do have the cold smoke kit for it that I'd like to pick up. I had a Brinkman bullet smoker but it was so hard to regulate the temperature and always ended up cooking the fish not smoking it, I finally gave up on it and went with the Traeger.



wow you lucked out with your traeger mine was a total failure I upgraded the controller to a blazin grills controller and now it does what it was supposed to do.
