Question is to cure or not to cure. Also what temp do you recommend to smoke trout. Low "cold" Smoke or higher. I will probably smoke till trout is 145. What are the more expert smokers advice. I have only had my MES about a month and I am still learning.

I typically hot smoke my trout. I treat them much like salmon.  I'm going to post a link to a pdf of a brine I really like to use.


The website is no longer, but the brine lives on.  It's my favorite.  Just wish I would have saved their smoked fish dip recipe before they decided to take the website down.   That stuff was killer!


I hope this helps.
