smoked amberjack

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I got a nice lunch box from my cousin down in the keys. Got a couple nice reef Donkeys and sent them to me to smoke. Made a simple brine with salt, brown sugar, tyme, and a bay leaf. I cleaned the fillets up, removing all blood line. After 24 hours in brine, I placed on smoker racks and refrigerated overnight. Got up early, and set up the mes30 . Temp was 190-210. Got done in about an hour an a half. Came out spectacular! !

I think an amberjack is called a kampachi (or kahala in Hawaiian) and is a very tasty fish!!!!

Nice smoke...

It has a few different names. It is looked down from people that don't filet properly. Bigger ones can get worms as well. If that means more for me, I'm good with that!

Yes it does. That was my original plan, but I had to get the kids to school and was out of time. Just made a simple fish salad and put on a pita. Got another one for today, it came out very good...

I'm with you. Had my oldest daughters first communion, and it was a lot of planning for the party. The day after that was my wife's birthday, and she banned me from smoking, lol. This Sunday is Mothers day, so no smoking. I had to pass up spare ribs on sale too, huge racks for $13.
