    RastaEGG,[p]That fish looks pretty good! Do you have the recipe and settings you used for this cook?[p]Thanks in advance,[p]-Mike[p]
  • RastaEGG,

    You're gonna put Ted Peters out of business.

  • Beanie-Bean,
    I just coat them with olive oil then add my favorite seasoning. I think I used one of the dizzie brands this time, but basically just smoke them at 250-300 for aprox. 2-3.5 hours until flakey. I used a place setter feet up with a raised grid for max fish area with a drip pan. [p]Good luck...

  • HungryMan,[p]LOL - I love Ted Peters but they are very pricey.
    If your lazy like me you can buy them from Mastries on 4th street - 10 dollars if you buy 10 pounds...[p]RastaEGG

    RastaEGG,[p]Yes, I recognize the low-and-slow config for this cook, ust didn't know what temps to use. Thanks for the quick response. I'll be adding this one to my list of experiments.[p]BTW, what wood did you use to smoke?[p]-Mike[p]
  • Beanie-Bean,[p]Cherry.[p]Good luck!

    1 Tsp. Horseradish
    ¼ Tsp. Salt

    Wow, just when you think you've seen it all. I grew up on the Texas gulf coast; NO ONE ever ate mullet - it was strictly used as a bait fish to catch eating fish.[p]Now, your post and all the replies have me second guessing that paradigm![p]TD

  • Tony,[p]Me too! We used to put out about a 300 ft gill net all night while duck hunting the outter banks of NC. Always made us mad next day, when we pulled out those pesky greasy mullet instead of the good stuff.[p]Sad thing is, there was a pretty good smoker at the lodge house too. Ya live and learn.
  • RastaEGG,
    I remember when the mullet dinner at Ted Peters was $.099
    Last time went there for a mullet dinner it was $12.99. Lately I've been sitten at the bar with an order of the fish spread and a cold ButtWiper. With this weather, there's nothing better.

  • RastaEGG, we have smoked mullet for years and love it. The secret is to break their neck when you catch them and let them bled so they are not so strong.

    I'm an ol' Florida cracker and have always LOVED smoked mullet! I've never thought of smokin any mullet on the Egg, though. Primarily because I live in TN and there aren't many mullet in these parts.[p]However I'm taking the Egg with me to FL for Thanksgiving, so I'll have to smoke some for my Dad while I'm down there. GREAT IDEA![p]What smoke do you like to use? And what, if any, seasoning?
  • Tractor,
    I like cherry and any ole rub will do. You can never go wrong with the dizzy stuff :)

  • TractorTractor Posts: 287
    THANKS! I can't wait to smoke some.
  • Tony,[p] The bottom composition makes a big difference in the taste of mullet. I grew up in Florida and you can tell the difference big time between Gulf or Bay Mullet (clear sand bottom) and river Mullet (muddy bottom). The gulf mullet are sweet and the river Mullet are strong fishy tasting. I live in Texas now and the mullet here are good bait, that's it, you can pretty much rule out eating them from the Mississippi on west...Not a rip on Texas just a fact on how the Mullet feed.[p] If you get East of the Mississippi try a big plate of fried Mullet, cheese grits and hush puppies![p] I'm going to Florida for Thanksgiving with my small egg and this post makes me want to call up some old friends and find a cast net![p]
