I had 6# of Northern Pike from fishing at the cabin last week, so I decided to try smoking them. The fillets were pretty small, after you cut out the Y-Bones, so I decided to cut them into 3/4" x 4" pieces.
Not really sure what brine method to use, so I did 1 batch following Bearcarver's latest Trout Recipe, and the other following Alaskan Bear's Lemon Halibut Recipe. For Bearcarvers Recipe, i used Yoshida Sauce, rather than Soy Sauce.
Since the pieces were kinda small, they ended up as "Northern Pike Jerky" rather than smoked fish. Good for me, cuz bite size pieces and beer go great together!
Here's my story
