    I've seen Pop's brine used for pork, beef, chicken, turkey, venison etc. This is the first fish I can remember! What kind of fish did you use?

    Tasty looking catfish. I would have been concerned about the fish being to salty, how was it? did you rinse it prior to drying and smoking?
     
  4. Just rinsed it and patted dry let sit in refrigerator over night. Was not salty pretty much just tasted like Canadian bacon as far as flavor.

    They look fantastic!  Dad used to do salmon fillets locally caught in Pulaski when the salmon were running, and even do whole salmon like that, cured and smoked!  Great Job!
