Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

• &#189 gal water
• 1 Cup Kosher salt
• &#189 Cup Brown sugar
• 1/6  Cup lemon juice
• &#189 Tbs Garlic powder
• &#189  Tbs Onion powder

Disolve dry ingredients in hot water.
Cool water with ice cubes.
Place fish, skin side down,in a flat dish.
Pour cooled brine over fish, try not to let fish overlap.
Brine for 2 hours in a cool location.
Place fish on a rack and let air dry for 2 hours in a cool location.

Light a small amount of coals.
When they are glowing add some more lump, then some wet suger maple and alder chips, then top with more lump.
This will produce a lot of smoke at a low temperature.
Place fish on cooking grid over an inverted plate setter or a fire brick setup.
Cool before eating for best flavor.
Slowly bring temperature up to 200* and smoke for 2 - 2-½ hours or until golden but not dry.
