Steely - so the Presto pressure cooker worked out nicely?  Guess I'll have to add one of those to the Xmas wish list...

Ya it worked out real good for me. I've never owned one before but had no problems. Also every jar sealed properly!  There was a few articles I read that said sometimes due to stuff on the rim of the jar they won't seal. So guess I had beginners luck lol although I gave that job to the girlfriend so I wouldn't screw it up haha

I do dry brine with 4 cups brown sugar and 1/4cup salt,
Layer brine and salmon for a few hours or overnight in the fridge, try to stir it up.
Rinse under cold water and smoke 2 hours max.
I only pressure can the thick pieces.
The thin strips don't get the rinse and stay in the smoker till its jerky.
