    A freind of mine wants to make a smoker for fish, and as they do not have internet access I said I'd see what I could find. Am not having a lot of luck really so was wondering if anyone here had a clue about this type of thing? I think I'll be sick if I see yet another pic of a dead deer when looking for info :o I've found a Smoke Web Ring which I'll browse around soon.....

    It is far easier to ask the ever resourceful Boxerworld members than search :)

    Thanks for any info.

    YUMMY!!!!!

    Sharon,
    I have a couple of ideas for you. One is to look up "Big Chief" smoke houses. They are for smoking small amounts of fish, they are actually electrical and you use wood chips for them.

    Another idea.......... we built a smoke house...... it looked like a hmmmmmm well a Outhouse,lol. This one we actually had a real fire in it, you had to watch it constantly (this means inviting all friends over and drinking beer).

    Another idea, is to buy a book on smoking fish, I have one called "Smoking Salmon and Trout" by jack Whelan. In the book it explains different types of smoke houses, diff recipes and processes.

    I actually think the real trick to smoking fish is the having a good brine to soak it in first. I also prefer my smoked fish more on the done side than some people. But a excellent process also is to smoke the fish for 1/2 the normal time and then can it!

    \ If I can help at all let me know!

    George, sounds good to me :) I was not interested in smoking food until I looked it up for my friend...but found a couple of sites about using a normal grill and think I'll give it a try.
