25lbs of smoked Albacore Tuna.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Here's about 25lbs of fresh albacore tuna fresh out of the brine.

Here it is all smoked up. I used a light flavor brine so the tuna is the main star. It is delicious.

Looks great Mike!
what flavor smoke/brine?
Never done tuna before I would assume you wouldn't because it's awesome I love it with a super light seare and soy and wasabi👍

Looks great! Tuna is without a doubt my favorite type of smoked fish and I love smoked salmon.

I don't mean to pry but having 25lbs and your location did you get to catch the tuna yourself or did you find a good buy?

I was able to buy 4 fish totaling 96 lbs. for $1.75 a lb. I actually used a store bought brine that was for trout. It had powdered honey in it and I liked the idea of just a touch of extra sweetness from the honey to bring out the great flavor of the tuna. It worked out perfect. I used peach pellets in my amnps.

That sounds like a great buy on tuna! I live down around Longview, Wa and would love to search for tuna around that price, I would do the same as you did. Did you buy off the dock or was it "from a friend" type of buy? Again not trying to pry, if I can find tuna close to that price if would load up, smoke some and put some in the freezer, also I would be happy to drive to the coast for that price.

Thanks again,
Alan

Looks great Mike! Are you going to can it up? That is a great price, selling off the docks here in Oregon for $3+ a pound non-dressed weight.

This is the guy I got it from. He was at 2$ a lb. for whole fish the last time I checked.
