Well guys, it's time to fire up the smoker. After a great trip up to the Ontario side of Lake of the Woods, I came back with a lot of nice fish, including some whitefish. I decided to give the whitefish a shot in the smoker. The lady that does the cooking at Flag Island Resort gave me a recipe for a brine, so I tried that. I'm hoping it's not going to be too salty, but we'll see when it's done. If it turns out, I'll post the recipe.
So, here goes. Hopefully I can get some photos uploaded. I'm using flickr, not photobucket, and not sure if they're going to allow the direct link to the image. We'll see...
Caught this dandy whitefish up on Shoal Lake.

Rinsed and ready to dry.
Got some pellicle.
Ready to add fire!
Got some TBS.
Temp is holding steady at 190F. I'll be back in a few hours with pictures and hopefully a good report!
