Brown Sugar Salmon

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Smoking/Grilling Time: Approximately 25 Minutes

Serving Size: 4 – 6

3 lbs  Salmon Fillet
1 TSP Sea Salt
1 TSP Freshly Ground Cracked Pepper
1 TSP Fresh Thyme (chopped)
2/3 Smoker Box Full Applewood

4 Tablespoons Honey
3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Pistachio (chopped)
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 TSP Minced Garlic
1 TSP Balsamic Vinegar
½ Lime (squeezed)


Season salmon (flesh side) with salt , pepper, and thyme.  Place on cooking platter (or aluminum foil boat) skin side down.  Allow to rest (temper) for 20 minutes at room temperature.  Fill Woodbridge Grill Magnetic Smoker Box 2/3 full with Applewood and place magnetically under cooking grate and above or between burner.  Fire up grill using medium-high heat and close lid.  Once smoke begins to develop, place salmon with platter on cooking grate using indirect heat method – smoker box on one side over med-high heat and salmon on other side with little to no heat.  Close lid for smoke infusion.  Meanwhile, mix glaze ingredients thoroughly.  Once smoking is complete, smother glaze over salmon and place on direct medium heat for approximately 10-15 minutes.  Remove from grill and place in oven on high broil for 3-5 minutes, allowing glaze to caramelize.  Save excess juices for basting.
