Cooking from 3 cookbooks this week:

Good for You by Dana Jacobi

Slowcooker Blueberry Slump (I added apples) from Skinnytaste

Steak, Pepper, & Onion Salad with my own dressing from Good for You by Dana Jacobi

Balsamic-Braised Red Cabbage with Apples by Dana Jacobi

Those tried & true chicken meatballs from Smitten Kitchen

Al’s Smoked Salmon, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“The recipe is simple. Brine: Half cup of hot water, fill with salt until you get ¾ cup. 4 tbsp each ground pepper and garlic powder.  Brine for 4 hours minimum.

I put a little brown sugar on before smoking. Baste a couple times with maple syrup. 4 hours of smoke (with apple or cherry—no mesquite) or until internal temp reaches 140-150°F.  

There is a website called amazingribs which is a nerdy smoker website mostly about gear, but they have posted a bunch of great smoking recipes.”

Thanks Al!
