Do you have to brine salmon before smoking?

Brining the Fish

Can I smoke fish without brining it?

Re: Smoking fish without a brine

If you don’t brine, and use low temperatures to fully smoke/cook, you may find that the texture may be too dry and/or stringy to sell it commercially. If you are going without brine, maybe apply the smoke then finish it off at a higher temperature and cook until the fish is done.
