Cant help with how to do it but just got to say smoked lake trout is AWSOME!! There is a place in Michigan I always stop at when I'm up there fishing and buy a few pounds, called Berts. Last time I was in Minnesota in the B.W.C.A. we caught a ton of lakers and went back to camp and cooked them over the camp fire. About 20 minutes from the time they left the lake till they were going into the skillet with butter and lemon pepper, best fish I've ever had. Man I'm hungry now.
