    It sounds delicious. I know if it's not cooked correctly it will be chewy. But smoked octopus really sounds good. Hope you can figure out the best way to smoke it. Sorry but no help here.

    Octopus is like squid, its either a very very short or a very low and slow, or its a rubber band.
     
  5. OK. Is it better to smoke it directly on the smoker grill or in a pan foil covered ??

    Just think though, next time you'll have it perfect. Its what first time smokes are all about. I am surprized that Leah didn't mention a short smoke it all those links above. She probably didn't even think about it.
