Thanks so much for the instructions on how to smoke salmon! I assume the fillets are left in the smoker overnight, right? Now, what's the best way to transport salmon home from British Columbia (frozen whole or fillets?) We're flying there this summer?

I would think vacuum packed it's is probably best.

I did the same thing you did last year in June. Three of us caught our limits in a day and ended up buying a vacuum packer at wal-mart. I fileted them, froze them, then packed them in three separate coolers which we sealed with duct tape. The airlines wouldn't allow any type of ice.

We must have been doing something right because there were dozens of others that were doing the same thing when we arrived at the airport. No problems going through customs at SFO. I asked about people having any problems bringing fish back and the flight attendant told me if they give you problems, just offer then a filet and they'll leave you alone (not sure if she was kidding or not, but she sounded serious).
