How do you make Hardy Boys smoked salmon?

I know it has something to do with salt, maple syrup and hot smoking... but what else/what ratio?

I have a salmon thawing from the freezer and really want to make either Hardy Boys or Candied Smoked Salmon. I Know I'm not in Port Hardy, but I'm on the same island, so I guess I could call it Hardy-ish smoked salmon.

Anyone got a recipe before this thing thaws out?

Thanks Diana B. It looks like a good recipe, but where is the maple syrup? All the fishermen I know from Port Hardy (where Hardy Boys smoked salmon comes from) say they use maple syrup as the main curing ingredient. Some also mention a mixture that they brush on the salmon as it's smoking.

It's a shame they are so secretive about the actual recipe.

Here's one that might be close...maple syrup in the brine and a honey baste..

Thank you inpatskitchen, that's much closer to folk lore I've heard.
