    I have some yellow fin straight off the boat from the last time i went to Hatteras, NC. Ive been wanting to smoke it but i never seem to remember to get it out of the freezer. How long did it take to smoke?

    Now I really like tuna smoked too. We have mostly black fin here on the east coast of Fla. I really like your smoker and I don't think that I have every seen a gas heated side box smoker like that before either. Very cool
