Smoked Permit

My friend, Conner brought me some fresh Permit that he speared yesterday in about 80 feet of water. I have never smoked fish on the Egg, so it was time to give it a shot. The Egg was setup indirect heat with an inverted plate setter. I used apple, cherry and elder woods for the smoke. We first used a Mediterranean brine for about 45 minutes prior to smoking. The fish smoked for a little over two hours. Really came out great.
Here are a few shots.

    Just looked up the species ... looks a lot like Tuna ... please let us know what Permit tastes like?

    None of the links for the pix works, perhaps you could try again ...

    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

  • Hi Squeezy,
    It is a mild yet firm fish. Has a bit of a wild taste to it. Smoked is awesome. I don't know what I did wrong on the pics. I have not posted in a while. Maybe someone would be kind enough to fix or advise what I need to do.

    I'd sure like to taste that one ... not much out of the sea that I don't like ...

    What temp did you use?

    Just revisited the pix and they worked this time ... looks really good!

    You mentioned a bit of a wild taste ... as say opposed to a tame taste ;)

    I've never heard of a fish called "permit"; I was afraid you had to buy a license to use your Egg in your locale!
