    Unsavory flavor?

    You soaked your chips good, so I would eliminate that as a possibility. Temperature is good, so not that. If you has air space all around the meat, and each piece not touching anything, then that is good. While I'm sitting here typing this, I remember one time I had my meat turn out exactly...

    Did you add the chips wet or dry?

    Carp for dinner

    Several guys I know that live up north, take these common carp and fry them, and say they are as good as most any other fish. This is how they cook them - Fillet the carp and cut off the fat and red meat... Score the fish on both sides, and make the score lines 1/2" apart from each other, from...

Them there is 4 -...

    Carp for dinner

    Al, the absolute best way I have found to cook carp is to pressure cook them, and make "salmon patties" out of them - IF you like salmon patties. The smell, texture, color and taste are nearly identical to that of salmon, that you buy in cans to make salmon patties out of. If you need a carp...

    Carp for dinner

    Yes, cutting off the fat definitely makes a big difference. Cook the fish slowly, so those bones have a chance to soften, then towards the end of your cooking time, turn up the heat so you can put a little "crunch" on the fish, unless you prefer a softer texture.

    Carp for dinner

    The only picture I took is the solid 10 pound carp that my wife caught this afternoon. (meaning no cooking or eating pictures :) ) We fileted out the fish, put it on ice for a couple of hours, then sprinkled on some of Jeff's Rub, and fried it up in a well seasoned cast iron skillet. This is...

    Gar!

    BrontoBurger - that sounds like my kind of carp fishing place! I took off work a couple of hours early today, and got my carp flies organized, and got my fly rod and reel ready to go. Next opportunity that presents itself, I'm going to take my wife and see if we can't catch a couple of carp on...

    Gar!

    73saint - I guess "trash" was the correct word used, because most people do think of the gar as trash fish. No harm no foul... Me personally, I have caught many bass 10 pounds and heavier in my life time, and I've caught many catfish on rod and reel that were over 50 pounds, and tons of...

    Gar!

    Thank you 73saint and motocrash! A gar may be considered a "trash fish" but they are one of the CLEANEST freshwater fish we have! The meat on a gar is not flakey, like what most other fish are. The texture is more like that of a pork chop... When you remove the two back straps from a gar...
