first time smoking fish

Discussion in 'Fish' started by stircrazy, Feb 5, 2012.

  1. Well, I saw some steelhead trout at costco for a good price so I thought I would get some and try smoking it.

    first pic, the fish was in the brine for 24 hours, rinsed, dryed and put on the smoker.


    and seven hours later at 150 degrees here are the results.


    from the sounds of it I will be doing a lot more fish, already getting requests for some...

  2. Looks great.  I'd like to request some!
  3. Looks great. I have a mess of trout in the smoker now.
  4. Looks like you did a nice job for 1st attempt at fish...
    What wood did you use? I use alder & apple with Steelhead.
  5. Great color bet it taste heavenly
