    Smoked Rainbow Trout

    I have to say these were the very best brined and smoked trout I've ever had the pleasure to eat...



    I liked the succulent moist trout candy just the way it came out of the smoker, but Char had to get a little fancy on me, but the fact that she really doesn't like trout that much and she did like this speaks for itself...

    I love smoked rainbow trout. I think I'd go with a butter cracker instead of the saltine, but it looks delicious.

    yeah, we didn't have any good crackers but it was still pretty good. I polished off one for lunch with some smoked turkey I also had in the smoker last night. I was doing a practice run before Thanksgiving. Then Char had her daughter over and decided to show her how to make her Italian Christmas Ravioli...It was definitely a win-win situation...

    Had a lot of smoke fish, but cann't say I've ever had smoke trout. Really looks good.

    Well I tried smoking trout years ago and didn't care for it very much but, back then I over smoked everything to say the least. What really made this trout so much better was brining them overnight in the fridge and using applewood for the smoke. The basic brine was brown sugar, water, salt, chopped onion and garlic, dried dill and lemon pepper. Very important to lightly rinse off the fish and thoroughly dry off the trout the next day and let sit in the fridge for several hours until it gets that sheen on the skin and meat...

    I can narrow it down to where your trout came from. 1. Frank Holten State Park. 2. World Shooting complex in Sparta, IL. 3. Jones lake. World Shooting Complex would be the easiest to get to from Waterloo, Frank Holten would be my best bet, though Jones Lake might be a sleeper and less known...

    I can remember as a kid going to Piggly wiggly and mom would pick up fresh smoked chubs. Always had a nice shine and the same golden bronze to them. They were great. Smoke a lot of salmon out of lake mich. We use brown sugar, vinegar,water. and a touch of liquid smoke for brine. It's fair. The best I ever had was what an old timer made. Buffalo caught out of the walbash. He used charcoal and sasafrass to smoke it. After reading this post I had the taste and had to get up and open a can of smoked oysters.
