Default Smoking Fish which end do you light

Hey I have a couple fishing friends want me to smoke up a bunch of their fish. Is there any kind of guide or suggestions on how long, what temp or something I should know?

I figure this is the place for all the best info

Mike

Sort-of depends on what kind of fish your friends want you to smoke. Smoking usually is better for more oily fish.

When I do salmon I usually do a dry cure and smoke at about 225* until fish is about 140* internal. This is a hot smoke and is called kippered. Sometimes I wet cure also just for variety. You can also cold smoke some fish (maybe all?) at much lower temps.

Maybe try the Google search feature here and sure you'll come up with a lot of input.
Also...try this.

A simple recipe we like for Salmon is to spread a thin layer of mayo on the fish. Then shake soy sauce over. Then sprinkle with Mrs Dash (i know boring, but it's pretty good used like this.) Smoke or grill indirect on an open tin foil boat until it flakes. Pretty darn good and really easy.

I would think this would work on most fish.

I've just started smoking fish. Personally, I light the tail and suck through the lips. Tastes better that way.

Now, I like to use the brine method with just a little Kosher salt, overnight.

The seasoning would depend on the type of fish, but I just add a little EVOO and some spice and through it in the box. It's done when It flakes apart, or has turned a uniform color. Opaque, not translucent.

Easy man!

Well I would never kiss a Lake Trout, I thought you were talking about real fish. That would be something that lives in SALT water. Smoked trout is OK, but Mahi, Salmon, Sailfish, Kings, and on & on & on.

Just a little ribbing, figured you could take it.

Never stated where the fish had to be, just salt water.

Problem is the closest Salt Water is in the Great Salt Lake & it only produces brine shrimp (keep falling through my grates). Beside I worry about them CA fish kissin folk. In my neighborhood we kiss Cow and sheep or an occasional pig, but none of them fishy things.
