smoking tuna

Discussion in 'Fish' started by mississippi slim, Aug 23, 2007.

  1. Although I've smoked beef for a while, I've never smoked tuna. Now my boss (actually, a good guy) has quite a bit of tuna he caught on a fishing trip off the coast of San Diego. He knows I've smoked meat for a while and has offered me some of the tuna to smoke it. Any tips, directions to recipes, or help would be well appreciated.
