Have looked over a lot of your posts but see no mention of brining and drying your fish before smoking it. Is this just understood or something that is not done. Have always brined my fish and let dry overnight or under a fan before smoking to form a nice pellicle before smoking. Was taught this as a child by my father and grandfather. All of us being fisherman.

That works for me. I almost always brine my fish in brown sugar, sea salt and allspice.

When it comes to fish like mullet, mackeral, etc......how long do you guys let it dry before smoking? I've definitely heard of letting salmon dry to form a pellicle, but I've never heard of that with southern saltwater fish
