Hmm depending on where you're located, the only place I can think of is Yoshi's Smoke House in Van. Also heard they are pricey though. Interesting question..I've done my own in the past, however I just haven't had the time to man the smoker in the past few years.
In Richmond try Luxery Smokers Ltd they're located on Raybar Road, a bit pricey...$3/lb.
Best place I found was Ocean Master Foods International Ltd. in Maple Ridge. About $2/lb double cold smoked.
$2.10/lb for Indian Candy, I strongley recommend this place. Don't forget to send me samples
there's a yoshi smoke house in N.van near Pemberton station area. Dad and I had 200lbs cold smoked for lox a couple of years back and it was around $280 ish. very good. can't wait for this years batch. mmmmmmmm
Funk's Super Valu on South Fraser Way at Clearbrook Road. Smoke and cryovac for $2.50/lb. Be sure to tell them what consistency you want for the finished product. Different species at different times of the year vary in oil/fat content. Example: took in a fresh chrome red spring this summer and they single smoked the fish. Wife picked it up and brought it home. It was the consistency of toothpaste! Took it back and asked them to smoke the shit out of it. They smoked it a second time and they made the call that it was still too moist. They threw it in again and it was PERFECT! Note: The longer the fish is smoked, the tastier and drier it becomes. They will accept the fish with only a field dressing (gutted and gilled) and will clean out the sand, fillet and prep. Take the fish into the store in a bag, cooler or some sort of a container. No mucky felt soles! It's a grocery store!
Stays good, in fridge only, for 6 months. No freezing required. Take in your freezer burnt carcasses as well and get them done. Great Xmas gifts for the in-laws.
