Interesting Video!!
The Catties look Great.
Catfish has always been By Far my Favorite Eating Fish, even back in the 50s when I think my family was the only ones in Pennsylvania admitting to eating Catfish. Everybody up here said, "Ewww--You eat Catfish???"
However the first thing I always do with a Catfish is Skin it.
Catfish skin is like thick rubber, like a Wetsuit.
I was glad to see it fell off in this video, later, but it would be better to remove it first IMHO. And they are soooo Easy to Skin.

Boy that the easy way to skin catfish. Going to have to try that. I have some friends that go noodling for them. Tried get me do it and said no way. They have had some close calls.

That's pretty cool, but that smoker would have to become a dedicated catfish smoker. I would not want to put any other meats in there as the fish smell will hang around.

And I still think I'd prefer to clean em and fry em.

Easier to do with a bigger fire. Patio size offsets need some help to keep burning with minimal fuel. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
