          Sea trout are the only fish I occasionally kill for the pot. If you fancy a meal fit for a king, try frying them in a pan with bacon. Mt wife loves a breakfast cooked that way: fantastic.

          Haptonlad is right though you tube will certainly give you the answer.

          Enjoy!!

            For best results on smoking your catch, the preparation is a must. You have to "brine" the fish first, which means soaking it overnight in a salt, soy sauce (or Worcester) and brown sugar solution. After this, rinse thoroughly and dry either naturally for around 45mins or dabbing with kitchen roll. When completely dry, place in the pre-heated smoker, as you are using a hot smoker. Depending on the amount you are smoking, a fillet of around a pound in weight will take between 12 and 15 minutes to smoke, for more than 1 fillet add between 3 and 5 minutes per fillet. Hope this helps.
