  • Sorry my note got dropped. I could not help myself on the Manatee comment. Went fishing the other day and the Manatees are all up in the bay. Anyways made a batch of Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel Spread for Thanksgiving. Smoked as slow as possible. Everything was to taste and used Worcestershire, Lemon Zest, Cream Cheese, Sour Cream and Hot Sauce. It was my best batch yet. Took extra care to trim out blood lines and hand separated the meat after smoking. Good stuff.

    So the meat that is smoking in the pictures is kingfish and mackerel?

  • I was kidding on the manatee. I hear in the old old days the crackers would eat em. The Mackerel is fair game though!

    My jaw dropped when I read that. They would be blubbery like seals and whales I think

    I was going to say, that definitely isn't legal and I'm curious what they taste like being the cow of the sea and all. I tried smoking kingfish once. It still to this day comes up as, "can't be worse than that kingfish. " How'd you smoke them?

    People had been sent to get your Eggs. They have been called back.

  • Sorry fellas. I got a book a few years back which is a collection of newspaper articles from sportsman adventures - "Tales from Old Florida". There were a few articles on eating Manatee. It even mentions using Mangrove wood which if your not from these parts is also protected. Anyways, smoked the fish with Apple Wood. I think both fish are ideal for smoking as they have a high oil content.
