Hi everyone, I live in Missouri and my wife and I regularly go trout fishing with our friends down in the Ozarks. After staring at a freezer full of rainbow fillets long enough, one feels compelled to get creative preparing them. I remembered the delicious smoked fish my grandfather used to bring home from the butcher shop in the '60s. I haven't had fish like that since. I talked to some BBQ buffs I know, and they all recommended one of the smaller electric smokers. So, I just bought a 30" Masterbuilt smoker from Bass Pro Shops. I have no idea what I am doing, but I googled "trout smoking" and it led me here. I've already read through a ton of existing threads on brining and smoking fish and I THINK I know enough to jump in and try smoking my first batch this week (if we get a day without rain). Wish me luck!
