Looking for any info/recipe for smoking fresh white fish of any species in a low-n-slow method?

    I accidently smoked some codfish fillets.  I thought the temp was higher than it was (on my OLD kamodo) and then lost a bit of time.  Once off, wife came home from work and I put this abomination on the plate.  It was horribly bitter and mushy.  She stated that prison food had to be better.  So........no recipe, only some bad info for you.  Good luck and hope I can follow the thread for a good recipe.

  • All I smoke is King Mackrell anymore...nice and oily and holds up great to the smoke. Then make fish spread from it. King fish season is a few months off. That would be a good one to post down the road.

    I smoked some tuna filets a few months back, chopped it, and made smoked tuna dip out of it. We left really thick and pasty for crackers and hot sauce. Easily one of the top 3 things I've made on the Egg. It was delicious, and didn't take long to cook. 200-225 for maybe an hour - hour and a half. Good stuff. Give it a try.

    I smoked some Mahi Similar to Mayberry's time and temp but on an alder plank for maybe 2 hours and it turned out fantastic! I typically use a wood plank for fish (usually alder or maple) unless its tuna steaks then it's hot and fast at 450 for about 45-60 seconds per side coated in dizzy Pig Jamaican Firewalk rub! I still use chunks of cherry or apple just to absorb a little bit of smoke!

    I didn't use a plank, myself. Flat on the grate, indirect, but I used a few apple wood chunks and I think a cherry chunk.

  • @Mayberry what is your recipe for smoked tuna dip?  I've been looking to make some and just ran across this thread.
