Default Scored Some 'Core

That would be Albacore. Bustin' my ass doing landscaping Sunday and a local bar buddy of mine stops by with a small cooler stuffed with 20#'s fresh albacore wondering if I would smoke it for him. Absolutely! I brined it yesterday for 8 hours and did them all on the 'dera last night. Great stuff. He came by last night, took about 15# home and left the other 5 for me.

Actually, that is what I meant. I`ve been waiting for my one friend to catch a striped bass now for two years!

Hmmm, steelhead is a very good fish to smoke too. My father has been hot and cold smoking salmon and steelhead for many years now. What is nice about the steelhead is it is very similar to salmon but more oilier. Keeping it moist when hot smoking.

Water, kosher salt, apple juice, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, bay leaves, sweet/hot chili sauce, and a tad of molasses.

That's news to me. Every salmon I've ever smoked contains much more oil content than any steelhead I've ever retained after landing - and I've landed a boat load of 'em.

I agree salmon has much more oil.

Salmon have a lot of oil in them. I actually prefer the taste of steelhead (hot smoked, like at 300 with an alder fire). A lot of people cut off the belly (which has a whole lot of oil) when they are filleting their chinooks and cold smoke those to keep for themselves and never share :)

TK- come on up and we'll do some fishing... maybe meet on the Rogue River or something. Never been there, but I hear the steelheading is good. Just gotta get the funds together to buy my spey-rod.

Might be a different type of steelhead? The one`s your landing, is it pink like salmon? We`re buying farm raised steelhead from Canada (I think) at the market. Without question, oilier than salmon. Tastier as well.

Steelhead is steelhead, although it's really just a big, ocean-going rainbow trout. Pink sounds about right, but it shouldn't be oily. They may be trying to pass off some cheap farm-raised salmon (maybe a pink salmon?). Salmon can be anywhere from pink to orange.

Could be. But size and thickness of a steelhead. And, taste`s better than salmon for a cheap salmon.
