Smoked Tuna Belly

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Was given a few pieces of Tuna Belly, I brine them over night. Could have used a lighter brine. I think they are yellow fin. They have been drying for about 1hr 20 min., gave them a sprinkle of a fish rub.


Smoker MES40 set for 180* stayed pretty close 192* was the hottest it got up to. Used my mailbox with the AMNPS  1 row not even full.
 Pellets nuked for 2 min.


Fish got up to room temp.


 Smoker ready for cooking AMNPS lit and ready.


5 hrs later they had reached 140* IT


Made a good guess on pellets this was left.


Finished Belly  Yummy


Thanks for looking

Richie

Having owned and operated both a Charter fishing boat and a commercial fishing boat, I can tell ya that's a really good way to get more fish! My favorite all time treat that a group of guys from Idaho would bring me every year was elk and venison snack sticks that they made, so good!

Tropics,

Nice looking bellies.  That is the my favorite part of the King Salmon. 

 

 

Case,

Too bad you didn't have a charter boat down here near San Francisco, for I would have kept your belly full of Salmon treats.

I bet!! This past weekend during the halibut opener my uncle limited out both days in 1 1/2 hours! 20 fish each trip, that's crazy fast for halibut!

Thank You Leah I like the striped bass you did, I have only scaled the back 10"s and smoked that. It is definitely one of the tastiest fish.
