So tell me somebody,after cleaning my trout what is the next thing to do to get it ready for the smoker? How long do you smoke it to be sure it is ready to eat? Thanks

are ya leaving the skin on the sides ?(easier to remove & more flavorful that way) - basically until it's white in color & the meat flakes w/a fork.
just squirt a lemon or thin slice a lemon on top of it,adda sprinkle of fresh dill & a shake of cracked or ground black pepper

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.icon_mrgreen.gif
