Some friends brought back some Halibut from Alaska for me.

It is just a small piece about 4 x 4.

How do I smoke this up?

Hey Cheech!
You are one fortunate dude! Halibut is one of my favorite fish. First, recognize that it is a very white tender fish. Smoke it lightly .... I like Peach wood. Then serve it with a fruit relish .... something like mango or pinapple. Absolutely fine!

Do you have any suggestions for time and temp?

My experience with grilling fish is to look for it to start flaking. Sort of like you would do with Salmon. I'm not sure how long a halibut would take though in a smoker.

Cheech,
The time will vary with the thickness of the fish. But just guessing .... for a 3/4 to 1 inch piece smoked at around 180 - 200* probably around 30 to 40 minutes until the meat is nice and flakey. But be careful, it's easy to over cook fish. Good Luck!
