Grilled Salmon with Bourbon Maple Syrup Glaze

Grilled Salmon with Bourbon Maple Syrup Glaze

Grilled salmon is a staple in the Meat Church Household. Salmon has so many great benefits; rich in Omega-3 fattys acids plus it is a great source of protein and B vitamins. This salmon is seasoned with our popular Honey Hog which has a natural sweetness from the honey powder. It is finished with a delicious Blanton's barrel aged maple syrup\butter glaze that will turn salmon naysayers into believers.

This cook is always special to me as I use salmon filets that Mrs. Meat Church & I caught on our annual guest chef trip to the West Coast Fishing Club in Haida Gwaii, British Columbia.

    Prepare your Smoker or Grill
    Prepare your smoker to a temperature of 325. We recommend lighter smoking wood or pellet for this smoke. We used maple in ths video. Pecan, alder wood or a fruit wood will also pair nicely with fish while not being too overpowering.

    Prepare the Salmon
    Place the filets on the soaked grilling planks or butcher paper (if using a pellet grill). A full filet will require at least 2 planks.
