Well after a very successful chicken quarter smoke I am now going to try smoking NC Rainbow trout. I have looked all over the ring and got a lot of tips.

The trout is in a brine now. It will be ready when I get the smoker to temp ( that was a suggestion I made on Meatheads Cook Log is to allow enough time to get to the proper smoker temp). I am going to use an olive oil, black pepper, garlic powder and a few shakes of hot sauce for the rub.

I plan to get the smoker to aim at 180*. I am soaking cedar planks to set the trout skin side down.

Guessing on thickness, about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Oh yeah, didn't have and fruit wood so I'm using oak splits with charcoal base.

Updates coming. Good or awful Very Happy

I really enjoy smoked fish, trout, salmon even mackerel, all take some smoke in a good way.

With the Trout I either cold smoke them, 80 - 100°F or I hot smoke them at 225°F, at the lo temperature I smoke them 2 - 3 hours, hot smoking at 225° it's only around an hour, a little less on smaller fish a little more on bigger fatter fish.

Thanks Cat797!! It turned out much better than I expected. I figured I would turn them into charcoal but I must say I am a smoked trout fan now.

You can make a killer spread out of the trimmings with some softened cream cheese, sour cream and herbs. Smoked trout dip is one of my favorites.

That sounds great. Thanks BigOrson. I must admit I wasn't a big fan on smoked fish until I did these trout. I am going to try tuna soon.
