Has anyone tried smoking Freshwater Drum. I have heard it's good but yet to try it. Also any recipes from anyone who has?

Hello Bugzee. Freshwater drum ( gaspergou in my neck of the woods ) don't have a lot of oil and will dry out quickly. I prefer all my white flesh fish ( yes, I like gaspergou ) rolled in cornmeal and fried so I have not tried to smoke any. I have read that smoking can be used for them but the recommendation is don't heat them for too long and dry them out. A recipe like a jambalaya or etouffee using smoked drum and sausage might work well. BTW. I see this is your first post. How about taking a minute to stop by roll call so we can say a proper Howdy. Some info on your smoker and your location will also help us provide more specific answers. Hope this helps. Keep Smokin!
