  1. My Dad went on a fishing trip and brought back some striped bass from Long island sound. He was told on the boat that a couple of he guys smoke some of the catch.

    Any idea on what temp?? How long?? wood? rub??

    Gut, I'm not the fish smoking guru, they will be by later...

    But I like Smoked Catfish. It is a tender fish and needs little to prepare ; I do know one shouldn't use a lot of salt on fish , it seems to increase in saltyness greatly.and quickly.

    I dust my Catfish with Paprika(smoked if available)and garlic and pepper. rest it till I get a color comming through the Paprika. Then put it in a vertical smoke chamber and hit it with about 125*f for 3to 4 hrs. It gets nice and pull apart good.

    Have fun and...
