    How thick are the filets?

    Well, if you just want your basic smoked fish, and if the filets are about 1 inch thick, I put filets on a porcelain grid, the kind full of holes, and cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, with lots of smoke. [p]TNW

    I would place them on the grill at 350ish* for 6-10 min, depending on the size of the fish. They may or may not have to be flipped....
    Emeril just did this the other day... brushed the top with oil, butter, Parm cheese, garlic and essence... I cooked it last night.. very good!!!

    Send the fish to me and go get steaks for in-laws. You got good advice. Grouper on the BGE is very good. Good luck with the cook.[p]CWM

    Nature Boy,
    I cooked the grouper at 325* for about 15 minutes with one careful flip. That feesh came out as moist as I've ever had.

    Thanks all for responding to my last minute request, the fish came out great.
