Hey, all you humpy haters, they're fine table fare if caught from the salt. Skip the river run fish and your opinion will change, I promise. One thing we don't lack here on Whidbey is alder and humpies. I use alder because it's free and works great. If you don't cut your own wood just find someone that does, or buys it, and pilfer a log that looks good and smells like clean, dry wood. Not mossy or moldy. You can use a hatchet if you like big chips. But if you can work with smaller chips a 1" spade bit on the cordless can make shorter work of it. I smoke in a cardboard box. My box is about ready for replacement. I'm using it for it's last hurrah right now (local market had whole, wild sockeye on sale for $6.99lb!). The box smells so good I'm considering eating it.
