Couldn't work out how to put my pics but I have put them on Facebook if anyone interested!
Search for Franco's Famous Sausagemaking and you will see my salmon :)

Right I have unpacked my salmon and washed in down and it is now drying on the side.
Got to leave it for 2 hours and then I can oil it and try some :)

Sounds silly but feeling abit nervous now - hope its worked!!!!

Seriously, can you explain for us that have no room for smokers, how it was done. Images would be great.

I'm sorry Cath, please don't take it that I have any axe to grind. I welcome your presence on the forum. I can express my opinion a bit forcefully sometimes, Please don't take it as anything else, but my heartfelt opinion.

Oddley wrote that tutorial on posting images on the forum Cath, it's not that obvious how to do it so we often have to direct people to that link on how to post images... :)
Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.

It wasn't the tutorial I was referring to, it was the smoking process. Just me being over sensitive :)
Alls well that ends well!
