Salmon is one of my specialties. I have done it several different ways, but one of my easy favorites remains. Coat the fish with PAM. Then I like to use Weber's Boston Bay on it. Grill with a side of veggies and a side of rice with butter.

Do you want to cook for dinner or smoke for a snack?
I have one for both. Butt I don't have exact measurements for the ingredients.
Unfortunately I don't write down measurements, I go by gut...

  ;D  Actually I find it has a higher burn point than evoo and it keeps the salmon from sticking so easily. It also seems to help the grill marks and aid in the browning. I have been using it on everything lately. I also keep my ci grates coated with it. :P

Whew, for s cecond I thought the topic ws going to switch to butter on rice!

I think spraying the salmon first instead of the grill is a great idea.
When I spray my hot grill, it justs vaporizes almost immediately. I doubt much reamins to protect or help the food. But by putting it on something as fragile as Salmon, it gives you a fighting chance!

Have you not seen the grill marks that Dukes Salmon has?

i'm pretty sure pam is made for pans. i don't know how safe it is to spray directly on food.

that freaks me out :)

It's food grade? It's made for baking. Have you ever notice the different flavors they make? The grill also doesn't need to be a 1000 degrees to cook any fish to where it vaporizes. I used to use evoo, but it flares up and black smoke billows out. You could also try wok oil.

i realize it's food grade; however you spray "it" onto the cooking surface before the food hits the surface.
"it" may be pure oil, but chances are it's not.

when you spray a surface, a lot of 'not oil' chemicals evaporate or burn off.
when you spray food, those chemicals may be sticking to the food.

i haven't done any research or testing. this is just my gut feeling :)

Possibly, but it tastes darn good! ;D

Seriously, why would they make different flavors to just spray on a pan? It's mainly canola oil.

That's fine, but it is mainly canola oil. What's the difference between canola spray and bottled canola then? With or without any other flavors added?

I would bet that if it contained anything that could be considered life threatening to humans, they wouldn't put it in the can.. Its basically an oil with a propellant.
It proably has some other ingredients that help in preventing the "Stickage" as they say.
And Troy, were all gonna die someday. I doubt we will have to write on your epitaph.
"He died from non-stick spray, a tragedy" More likely, he died from too much butter on his rice! 8)
