I have an addiction...

to salmon candy. I made the mistake a while back (I think it was when I first started fishing coho the first time last year) and bought some smoked salmon candy from Central Market in Poulsbo. I was in a funk (and still am) and I wanted to see what I was missing out on by not catching anything. To make a long story short, I've been hooked on the stuff ever since. I even tried to buy it from the Bangor commissary but it just wasn't the same. At $18 a lb this addiction is worse than cigars.

Anyone have some awesome brine/smoke recipes so that I can hopefully one day smoke my own? Better yet, anyone have a good source for some smoked fish that can compare to these little slices of heaven that are breaking my bank account?
