Well, is it a good piece of tuna? Sushi Grade? Many times my neighbor will do the same and give me some chunks of nice yellow fin or blue fin. I either make sushi rolls or fire up some lump in the chimney and place a grate over the chimney. Marinade in a little sesame oil and soy sauce and sear to rare. Never tried smoking it.

Have used teriyaki, wasabi butter and blackened seasoning, all are good. Never tried smoking, always hot and fast, rare to mid rare.

Take a look at Silvrfinger's entry for the Japanese throw down. That's how tuna should be cooked!

Nothing wrong with smoking it. We do that on occasion with frozen tuna "steaks" to make a nice smoked tuna salad.

Tuna smokes up real nice with a light fruitwood smoke.

Or sear it, either way works great!

FYI all sushi fish is frozen to kill the little bugs in the flesh (parasites) I cringe when people catch fish and eat it right away thinking thats sushi
