  1. Dry Brine

    so I brought a tuna & snapper back from florida. I have 1/4 of a tuna loin about 6 pounds & 4 snapper fillets about 10 pounds with a dry rub on them wrapped in plastic wrap sitting in fridge to smoke tomorrow. after I rinse & pat dry do you add spices to fish now or wait till the last hour of smoking. last time I waited & didn't think I got enough of the flavoring. I put maple syrup & seasoning & smoked for another hour. I also couldn't get the temp to 150 on the tuna & it was good but pretty dry. I got it to 130 & it stalled out.

    walleyehooker has got it right. best recipe + very firm pieces as long as everything is kept cold during entire process. I make the brine the day before or in winter set it outside till very cold.
  3. Meat Sales

    as you walk through hy-vee & see the little sale signs on items lift the sale tag & look at the regular price. they are the same.. but we must be stupid enough to fall for it as the new hy-vee was 23 million I believe & my wife loved it. plus its a mile from home.

  6. Deep Fryer Question

    I was taught to fry a potatoe to clean the oil of the fishy taste. I usually cut one in half & fry it a bit & it seems to make a difference. on new oil this wouldn't be needed. only after a couple of prior uses.

  15. Jerky

    eyeguy how many hours & what temp do you run what kind of texture do you want. tough & chewy or softer all the store bought stuff has now went to the soft version that I don't really like.
