I am getting ready to try smoking some sockeye salmon for the first time. I saw this recipe in the smoking fish sticky that I would like to try:
Some of the recipes in the smoking thread call for pickling salt, while some just say salt. My question is this - when discussing using salt for smoking, do people generally mean pickling salt, and it is just assumed without having to say it? Or do some people just use regular table salt (iodized or noniodized)? Going to try it for the first time and would rather not screw it up too bad by using the wrong salt without knowing.
Thanks in advance.
