OK, calm down... PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif

I've never smoked bullheads, but then before last weekend, I said the same thing about catfish.

Smoking fish can be a bit of a challenge, to me anyway.

But, I would set them in a brine (Cowgirl's is my favorite) for a few hours. When I did the catfish, I brought my smoker to about 200-225. They took about 2 and a half hours, maybe not quite that. Didn't worry about the temp of the fish, just checked them at about 2 hours, waited a bit and took them off when they flaked.

Find the thread "Holy Smoking Catfish Battle" for a link to the brine.

Good luck and I'm begging for some Qview. PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

I think you are forgiven. Now so back to the real quesiton. How are the bullheads coming? My parents live on a lake and I was back home a few weeks back with my wife and we had a bonfire and several beers and caught bullheads until midnight and had a good old time. We put some lights up so we could see our bobbers and just kept pulling them in left and right. My parents lake is very shallow so it freezes out every year so bullheads are abot the only thing that makes each year. They were too small so we didn't eat any of them. I actually love bullheads as long as I don't have to clean them. We just fry them like I would any other fish. Good stuff!

The misses has been after me to try smoking cats or bullheads.
I didn’t think it would be worth while.
Looks like I may have to rethink that.

Hello . There is not any difference to preparing channel cats and bullheads in the same type of brine . Just less time in smoker because of smaller size . ( common sense ) .
