I used to fish Lake Michigan for salmon but, yours is still the best. Maybe its the marijuana? I dunno.
Come to think of it, I believe I'll have salmon tomorrow for dinner...time to fire up the BGE and lay in a cord of Alder wood.
I used to go salmon fishing in the Puget Sound. We were limited to two per tag. Chinook put up a good fight!
Then the feds came in and stopped us because of some crazy story that they're all gone. So, for the most part, Washington salmon is farm-raised.
A popular method is to cook on a cedar plank that's been soaked in water. Having no method to create a legal open fire (other than Weber BBQ), I guess charcoal is the fuel for me.
