Using an electric smoker allows you great versatility when it comes to smoke salmon. Being able to control the temperature is also great for those just starting on your smoking adventure.

  • Fresh wild-caught salmon fillets

  • Melted butter

  • Fresh lemon juice

  • Sea salt

  • Freshly ground pepper


  • Add soaked wood chips of choice (I like a fruit flavor like apple chips, but for a stronger taste, hickory does well too) to the smoker.

  • Preheat to 160F.

  • Generously coat salmon fillets with melted butter and lemon juice mixture.

  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Place in the smoker.

  • Smoking time can be up to 3 hours for fillets to reach 145F.

  • Do not wrap in foil or paper.

  • Check to see if the fish will flake easily.

  • Serve immediately with fresh lemon slices on top.
