    Thought about a Red Perch smoke this weekend. I can get US farm raised Red Perch from my local grocier.....

    Anybody ever tried it?? I'm using a cheapo Brinkmann 2 door verticle w/Kingsford Blue Bag and Cowboy Lump....( Yeah,Yeah....I know....but it's all I can get.)

    Anyway....What brine and for how long?? Pelicle or not? What temps and for how long?? What wood to use??


    ANY tips/advice is GREATLY appreciated!!

    Thanks all,

    Perch? Fry it in beer batter. Not enough fat to smoke it, really. Add some cayanne for SCHPICY!

    Go Wings!

    Thanks Rich. Wasn't sure...that's why I posted. I got the last 6 fillets from the grocier. they're small...but look delicious. Wish I could get those huge jumbo perch from the upper western UP that I caught as a kid.

    Gotta good beer batter recipe??
