  1. Hello,

    Does anyone have a recipe for smoking herring?  I would like to know if you prep (brine, dry) and the smoking conditions (type of wood, temperature, time).

    Thank you!

    Don't know  if what you call herring is the same as what I call herring down here.

    I smoke blue mackerel a fair bit. I brine them in a mix of beer,water,salt,brown sugar,chopped oranges & bay leaf. 

    Leave them for a couple of hours.Pull them I don't rinse them but thats just me. 

    Put them on racks in the frig for a couple of hours to dry.I then tie them in pairs by the tails & smoke them over hickory. 

    I do mine in my MES at about 80c for an hour + until I think they are done.

    Let me see if I can find the old thread.Mine are Scottish influenced in style.

    Regards Mick
