Smoked Rainbow Trout
Step 1: First of all, mix water with all the sugar, salt, and spices until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
Step 2: In a dish, skin side down the fish and pour in the brine. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and flip the fish continuously. Place the fish in the fridge and let the fish marinate for at least 8-10 hours.
Step 3: Rinse the fish completely and lay it on the smoker rack. Now, place the trout in a cool dry place for at least 1 hour so that a pellicle starts to form on the outside of the fish. Turn on the fan if you want to speed up the process.
Step 4: Set the smoker to 180 degrees Fahrenheit using the Alder, wood maple, or any other mild wood chip.
Your delicious Smoked Rainbow Trout are ready.
