Time For Smoked Steelhead & Rainbow Trout

9 posts in this topic

About 10 days ago I came across steelhead on sale, it's one of my favorites for smoking, great fat ratio and the thickness is very uniform.  I did keep two pieces for myself and made suprise gifts out of the rest.  Last Wednesday I went out to a local lake and caught a few rainbow's, I managed to prep them the same day and did my dry cure for a few hours, rinsing them about 11PM and holding in the fridge until the next morning, then smoking them.... roughly 18 hours from the water to the smoker... but I'm getting a little greedier, I kept 3 fillets this time :grin:  These were seasoned with a homemade garlic pepper blend, and also coarse ground black pepper. I took the internal up to 150° and used a pellet blend of hickory, cherry, apple and hard maple in my Big Chief box smoker.

Ever try brushing them with pure maple syrup?  I do this with Salmon at the same time I put on the garlic and pepper.

Yes, I make a sweet version for two friends of mine, they call it candied salmon, but I don't apply the maple syrup until the last hour. I thin it slightly with hot water, and a couple of times I used a mix of agave nectar and maple syrup.  The sweet combines well the flavors of garlic and pepper doesn't it?

Yeah they taste great, I start brushing the syrup on with about an hour left also.  That is also when I add the pepper and garlic.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
