Recipes for Electric Smoker – Salmon

Family reunions are the best part of holidays as it brings the family closer, barbeque that usually takes place in these family reunions not only serve as a means of enjoyment but also the scrumptious and delicious food that is served brings the family closer and are the best times to socialize. Smoked food fans are fond of fishes and one of the most delicious smoked fishes is smoked salmon. Salmon is a delicacy and is a cold water fish.

The first step in preparing salmon in an electric smoker is to prepare the salmon for smoking, firstly the salmon should be deboned or a deboned salmon should be bought, no bones should be there in the fish as it will hamper the smoking process and the final dish will not turn out to be too good. After removing bones from the fish it should be washed thoroughly then it should be dried. After washing the salmon it should again be drenched for a small time in alcohol like vodka or tequila, then the salmon should be brined, kosher salt should be used and for a single cup of salt, another two cups of sugar should be added the salmon should be cut into small rectangular pieces.

After cutting the salmon a thick layer of salt should be placed on the bottom of the tray then the pieces of salmon should be placed on it and the mixture of kosher salt and the sugar should be sprinkled thoroughly over the pieces. Then the salted salmon should be allowed to rest for an hour or two after this process the salmon should again be rinsed thoroughly. After this, the marinating process of the salmon should be done. In a bowl mix salt, pepper, red chilly, garlic, and water mix all the ingredients then this mixture should be applied to the salmon properly then the salmon should be wrapped in a plastic wrap in such a way that most of the air from the fish is taken out then the fish is refrigerated for a minimum of twelve hours, it is done so that the fish absorbs all the flavors and takes up the taste of the spices.

After this, the excess marinade from the salmon should be removed by placing the pieces of salmon on some paper towels so that the paper towels absorb the excess marinade. After this the chrome plated grates of the electric smoker should be oiled so that the salmon does not stick to the grates, also the electric smoker should be preheated at 225 degrees F, soaked wood chips should be placed in the wood chip bowl of the electric smoker on Solidgoldeats.com. Then the fish should be placed inside the electric smoker at 165 degrees F the fish should be smoked for at least four to five hours.

The smoking process depends totally upon the taste of the person. Smoking the salmon for three hours minimum provide it a smoky texture which is tender as juicy whereas on the other hand some people like a firm texture which is obtained by smoking the fish for five to six hours which breaks down the muscles of the fish and makes the salmon tender and smooth.

The fish should be smoked till the temperature inside the fish reaches a crisp of 130 degrees F, a probe thermometer of a meat thermometer should be used in order to aptly take the temperature of the fish. After the fish is smoked it should be allowed to rest for a minimum of thirty to forty-five minutes so that the fish absorbs all the smoky flavor and the texture provide to it by the spices and the entire process of smoking.…

This recipe is highly customized in nature, how? some people like there jalapeno guacamole as super spicy and to make it that spicy they prefer adding extra jalapenos to the recipe whereas some prefer tartness and for it, they add extra lime, the flavor depends on how you wish for it to be. The most important thing that you need to keep in your mind is that you are supposed to add tomatoes to bowl only in the end and do not forget to save some cilantro you would require some of it for sprinkling on the top, in the end, Let’s get started with the recipe. 



  • Three pitted and peeled Avocados (ripe) 
  • Half Tomato 
  • Half Red Onion 
  • Chopped Jalapeno 
  • Two big spoons of Chopped Cilantro 
  • Half a Lime  
  • One small spoon Salt 
  • One small spoon Ground Pepper 


  • Start with the avocados, first peel them and then pit once done take a medium-sized bowl and add the pitted and peeled avocados to the bowl, take a fork and mash the avocado with it, you can even use your hands if you do not want to use a fork for mashing.
  • Time for some chopping, first take the onion and chop it, be careful, once done with chopping the onion take the jalapeno and chop it, after jalapeno chop the cilantro, once done with chopping all the veggies, take a medium-sized bowl and add all the chopped veggies to the bowl, after the veggies add lemon juice to the bowl and top with pepper and salt, take a spoon and start mixing (do not get the tomatoes just yet).
  • You would have noticed that we did not chop the tomatoes when we chopped the other ingredients because we were not supposed to add tomatoes with the other veggies to the bowl(why? because if you add chopped tomatoes at the beginning then the texture of tyour guacamole would be wet which is surely not good), now chop the tomatoe once done with chopping fold it into other veggies( be gentle) serve it fresh and if you do not wish to serve it just now or wish to wait for your friends or family then cover the bowl properly and then place the covered bowl in your refrigerator.

Concrete Is Everywhere

Concrete is everywhere in today’s date, how? it is used to make viaducts, sidewalks, bridges, and buildings but the thing that we all somewhere somehow know is that when the concrete is made a very high number of greenhouse gas is released in the atmosphere which contributes in climate change, the good news so far is that there are alternatives to this harmful material and below is a list of them, go through the list so that you can realise that there is a way you can contribute good things to the nature. 


  • Grasscrete

The name itself tells a lot about the product, it is a technique of 

laying the sidewalks, flooring, driveways of concrete in a way which leaves behind some openings which one can grow flowers and grass, there are two benefits of grasscrete, number one is that actually reduces the usage of concrete and the other one is that it offers an improved drainage and absorption of stormwater. 

  • straw bale building

Bale easily replaces materials like plaster, stone, gypsum, concrete, fiberglass, and wood, bale reminds us of the time when people use to build their homes with natural materials, all one needs to take care of is the sealing one must seal the bale properly once properly sealed  

it provides insulation and on the other hand, it is highly affordable and is renewable as well. 

  • HempCrete

Hempcrete term itself tells a lot about what it is, it is a material which is similar to concrete but it is created from the inner woody fibers of a plant named hemp, bund it with the help of lime and as a result, you get shapes which are not only strong but also light, hemp blocks are of very lightweight in nature and it is also renewable 

  • Rammed Earth

The feel that rammed earth gives is very much similar to the feel of a concrete sidewalk or flooring, all you need is dirt tamped tightly (of course in wooden forms), it is basically a technology which has been around for a thousand years now and the human civilization has been using it since then only, along with this to make everything more safe bamboos are used. 

  • Plastic (recycled)

Recycled plastic equals to a little bit of happiness now, why? because now you can use concrete without contributing to greenhouse gases, how? by mixing trash and plastic to the concrete, it would help to reduce plastic waste and greenhouse gas and other than this it even helps in reducing the weight. 

  • Plain Wood

how can we forget wood? we can easily use wood in place of steel and concrete, wood does not even require that much energy and easily be processed into products required for construction and we all know that woods are renewable in nature we just need to take care of the forests. 

  • Timbercrete

It is a material which is actually made up of concrete and sawdust, there is not much of transport emission because it is light weighted, you can easily makde pavers, blocks and bricks out of it
