    I don't know what the hell bassa is but it looks good.
    Are you a greek mispronouncing Bass?

    Looks EXCELLENT!

    What did you do to prep said fish?
    I'm SURE others would like to know as well as it appears SUPERIOR.

    Thanks for sharing the Q View with us, I love smoked fish, hot or cold smoked. Nice ventilation system you've got there.
