Making schmaltz is pretty easy. Add the chicken skin and any leftover fat to a cold nonstick pan and put on medium heat with a little salt. Pour melted fat into a jar through a fine mesh strainer and you are done. I've heard of people adding onion to the pan, but personally the onion flavor isnt wanted.
Well I'm sure my Jewish culinary terminology needs work, such was already pointed out on my lox thread. I called it "smoked gravlox" which isn't correct apparently.

But anyway, first I salt/sugar cured a fresh salmon fillet for about 5 days, then I cold smoked it for around 6 hours using cherry wood pellets. The result was amazing, I can't stop eating it and am down to my last portion so I'll have to make more soon.

You have the best of both worlds there!
See, that's where the real story is.
In the competition for the attention of the space aliens.
Everyone's equal in the eyes of God, but the space aliens, you've got to figure they would play favorites.
