    Do you think this would work good on South Louisiana catfish? Might have to gibe it a try.
     
  5. Looks delicious and very very close to the recipe that I use.

    Try a variation with Dark Brown Sugar and crushed Szechuan Peppercorns.  You won't be disappointed....

    Curious bout the pink salt. Do u use it for saftey reasons? Does it change the flavor.

    Me too. Also Tablespoon seems a bit much. Shouldn't it be more like 1&1/2 tsp. or less depending if its 6 or 8 lbs?
     
  10. Spot on, down here in Florida we smoke a lot of Mullet, about 8 hours, low and slow.

    These took less time, rib cage and backbone out, Red bay wood and green bay leaf branches.  I do about 100 pounds of

    whole fish at a time.  You have to have a dedicated smoker for fish, that oil will transfer to other meats real easy.
     
  11. Here is my new rig I built, 20 racks, 33 X 23", should hold 200 pounds.

    One question? So I go to a local metal store and ask for food grade stainless steel. No clue as to what I'm talking about. So, I'm asking; what exactly is food grade stainless?
     
  15. 316 Stainless is better, 304 is cheaper, but is acceptable for FDA use.
     
  16. Smoked Salmon was going to be my next project. Thanks for the recipe. 

    question: does it really only take 12 hours for the cure to get through the meat? I know Pork (bacon) can take up to 10 days to get all the way through, roasts even longer.

    Thanks again.

  17. 12 hours is on the low side, depends on the thickness of the filet, amount of salt and skin or no skin, I think.
