Default Anyone here ever smoked fish?

I was wondering who may have had a good experience smoking fish in the UDS?

I smoke fish in my drum. Here is some I did awhile back...

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=59799

I use foil. I just have visions of the fish flaking down into the bottom of my drum. Setting it on little pieces of foil makes me feel better. lol

It doesn't take long to smoke. I go by feel, some are ready before others.

Sure do. Depending on the quantity, I use the following greased "pans" on top of the grill:

I smoke salmon all the time on a drum and it comes out great. I put foil with lots of holes poked in it on the bottom rack (to act as a heat defuser) and the fish on the top rack. This way I can keep temps down to 180-200. I leave the skins on, spray them with veg oil and put them right on the grill with no problem. I brine, then air dry before smoking.

Gurnard,trout, plaice, seabass, garfish (cut off the beak), herring, (black) seabream or whiting is really tasty on the smoker. My favorite is eel and a nogo is shark. Smoke large fish ans filets lying down, smaller fish you can hang on a hook.

Fresh bluefish is great smoked. I usually brine it first with the following.
1 quart water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup kosher or pickling salt
1/4 cup sugar
3 or 4 bay leaves, crushed
2 tablespoons mustard seed
1 tablespoon whole peppercorns

I have 2 obsessions, BBQ and fishing. I want to combine them and smoke some catfish. I have grilled fish before over a high heat but have not tried smoking it. Looking forward to it. Thanks for the info.
