Catfish Fillets

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am wanting to smoke some catfish fillets, but what temp does fish have to be ? I have worked with meat and fish for 10 + years and I can't remember what the temp needs to be. Maybe I need to lay off of the Budweiser .......or maybe notbiggrin.gif

i know i am going to get alot of grief for this answer..........but this is one food you cook to time.......not temps......

i did my last at 250 for 2 hours, and it turned out dry as a pop corn fart......this is even after brining for 4 hours......i would smoke for a hour, then test for flakieness.......i had several small pieces, which i should of checked to see if done, and i didn't, and payed the price for it......basically ruient the entire smoke (yes ruient is a werd.......heheheh, least in my household.......lolol)..........so if you have smaller pieces, try that.....if not, take a fork and test after a hour to see if it flakes......and then test every 20-30 minutes after that, depending on what your first test was like...........

Well! I am not sure what that is like but I am sure I only want to serve one of those to my 15 year old boy..(...who btw did just that..) so I say ditto with the time and then the testing of the flakiness, fish is so easy to "ruient" ....

I'd have to disagree, theres nothing better than a cold beer on a hot day, unless that cold beer invited 29 of his ice cold buddies to come too.wink.gif

There are just some things that need finess. Fish is one and my wife is another. When fish flakes easily it is done. When my wife is flaky I stick a fork in her. LOL
