    Good morn and Happy New Year!  I have about 10 lbs whiting that were lightly brined overnight.  Not sure of the temp and duration for smoking.   I have made them before, but somehow I have developed a brain fart!  Thanks, Jerry

    I try to keep my smoker between 160 - 180 and pull my fish around 145 internal. But internal is a matter of preference. I like whole fish a little moist , but you could hold at temp a little longer if you want to dry out. Same for fillets unless I'm doing fish candy or jerky then I dry longer. If I smoke at lower temp. then 160 I add some cure to the brine just to be on the safe side.Duration = It takes the time it takes!

    BTW, where the hell did you catch whiting? Haven't seen them around in years, maybe you should get them mounted!

    The benefit of living close to the ocean. There is a seafood co-op in Belford NJ, close to Sandy Hook.  You can go everyday and buy fish right off the boats.  Asto my posting Fotos, I don't have a Smart Phone, but a Flip Phone. I call it a Fredo Phone.

    Too long a drive!
    I'm not 15 minutes from there. Had a feeling you bought them, haven't been enough in inshore waters in yrs. for even head boats to target. Global warming, I think. Every year there are more & more what used to be rare tropical fish being caught off the beaches of NJ from the Hook south!
