Hi Krys and welcome to the forum.
My approach to fish, is to keep it as simple as possible, with just a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of salt and pepper to taste. Use a mild wood, such as Alder, but use just a handful of chips on your 1st smoke, you can use more the next time if it's not smoky enough.
I would suggest that you fillet the fish before smoking at around 220 Deg F and this should take around 40 mins, dependent on the size of the fish.

There are so many books out there, I haven't read that many to be in a position to recommend any.

Check out the Virtual Weber Bullet web site. They have two Salmon recipes. I have tried one, the Brown Sugar rub, and it was very good.

I just grilled some Salmon last night, and as Mack said, kept it simple. I use a little Lemon Pepper and Garlic Pepper, a little Thyme, and sprinkle it with Lemon Juice while grilling.
Enjoy,
Bill

I have never done a Salmon on the smoker, does it take significantly longer?

I am a huge fan of the Cedar Plank Salmon which needs to be done on a reasonably higher heat. You could do this on a ProQ Frontier perhaps by removing the water pan and using the lower grill.

I have smoked Salmon on my offset. I used apple wood. It came out VERY tasty, and only took about 45-hour if I remember. I am anxious to try it on the Frontier
