My smoker broke during the cooking portion of smoking some salmon. I put the fish in the oven to finish the cooking. Is this o.k.? Will it make any difference in taste or texture? Mike

The smoke is what adds the flavor to the salmon. I have a feeling it will dry out the salmon in the oven but it sounds like you have no choice. Good luck and I will be interested to see how it turns out.

If you had already used enough chips/wood to flavor your fish and were just finishing it off with no smoke and had to use the oven versus your smoker I do not see where that would make much if any difference as long as you kept the temp of the oven the same as what your smoker would have been.

Mike, I have a spare if you want it
Jim, Thanks, but I am pretty sure santa has gotten me a new one for christmas. Sea Ranger, I was done with the smoking and the salmon turned out just fine. Pretty tasty.

I actually like to finish my smoked salmon in the over becuase I think it turns out a little less dry. You got more control with the oven temps.
