Smoked Salmon in Packages– Salmon fillets – however many you have, or however many will fit in your smoker at one time
– Dark brown sugar – the amount depends upon how much fish you have (see the next page for details)
– Non-iodized salt (canning salt works well)
– Garlic, preferably fresh pressed garlic
– A large bowl to mix the dry brine in
– A non-metallic container (glass, enamel, plastic) to brine the fish in
