Went salmon fishing in Lake Michigan off the coast of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. Decided to make a video.
Dry Brine:
1 cup salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp black pepper
a bunch of fresh dill
1) Dry brine salmon overnight using Dry Brine ingredients.
2) The next day, rinse off salmon and pat dry.
3) Air dry for 2-3 hours or more to form a pellicle on surface.
4) Smoke between 150-180 degrees until done (~2 hours) using a lighter wood such as alder or cherry wood.

      I am not a fish eater, but would like to acquire a taste for it using my kamado.  Do you guys have any suggestions for this endeavor?  Cookbooks, receipes, videos, personal experience, etc.

      What's your feeling on using a rotisserie to cook fish like Salmon, Halibut, Tuna, etc...
      I haven't seen any benefit to using rotisserie fish to cook fish with the exception of skinless cuts from Costco.  The rotisserie helps to provide an even cook without burning the bottom of the fish.  Generally speaking, the fish is never on the grill long enough to benefit from self basting.  There's doesn't appear to be any real benefit to using a rotisserie to cook most fish.
      What do you guys think?  Are there scenarios where using a rotisserie to cook the fish would be beneficial?

      I seared this swordfish steak and then topped it with a reduction of balsamic vinegar, orange juice, and a little Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey... check it out!

      I am NOT a fan of cooking whole fish.  There is some mysterious attraction to having a whole fish plated with the head on.  In my opinion, THIS is the last time this fish will look appealing in any way.  Once it goes to the heat, the color fades, they eye clouds over and it loses most of its visual appeal.  
      I LOVE FISH.  I love cooking it.  I love eating it.  I'd just rather have a big fat filet or some sort whether it be salmon, a tuna steak, swordfish, mackerel, sea bass, roughy, trout, large mouth bass, or whatever it might be.  
      I cooked this one today to make a video of the process.  I slit the upper side of this one and stuffed in some lemon slices.  I squeezed lemon juice over the whole fish and in the cavity as well.  I stuffed onion, rosemary, and dill inside the cavity.  I salt and peppered the outside of the fish and drizzled it with olive oil before roasting it on the grill at 425-450-ish for about 30 minutes until it was done.  It tasted great but it was visually unappealing (to me) after it was cooked.
