Brook Trout

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

We caught a mess of Brookies and wanted to smoke them.

Cousin said to brine them in Cure #1 , so I made the following brine.

1 Gallon water

1/2 cup non-iodized salt

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp Prague powder ( pink salt ) ( Cure #1 )


It took about 3 gallons to cover them in a 5 gal bucket , weighted them down with a bowl.

Let set in the fridge for 6 days

Took them out and let em get a pellicle , then to the outhouse smoker with them. ( my wife said it looks like an outhouse , lol )

Outside temp was about 45 F , started the smoke at about 90 F.

Kept a heavy smoke going for 2.5 hrs and the interior of the smoker reached 160

Opened the door to goodness , DONE


I put them in the fridge for about 20 hrs and then vac  packed them this morning.
