    Any suggestions as to how long and how much smoke? For those of you not familiar, a rockfish is a striped bass - here in MD we call it rockfish.

    How did it turn out? We did some in the spring when the stripers first came up through. It turned out excellent, over some cherry wood. Smoke it with lemon pepper & some good evoo still it flaked...
