Tullibee?

2 posts in this topic

Just got back from LOW and have about a dozen tullibee that I am planning to smoke. My father-in-law used to catch them on his home lake and swears that he just threw them on the smoker with no brining and nothing real fancy.

Does anybody have any experience and/or recipes that I can use on these fish? My wife remembers her dad's tullibees and I've been pleasantly surprised that she is all for this. I had never discussed this with her until I told her we had caught a good amount of them and that I wanted to try smoking them.

I smoke tullibees all the time.In fact I just got some yesterday.Just go to the thread about smoking here and use one of the recipes.I use the one where you add 1 cup salt to 1 gallon of water and soak overnight.I always leave the skin on fish that I smoke.Just punch a few holes in the skin to let out the oil and moisture.

Tullibees have a row of bones down the middle.....kind of like northerns do so be carefull of them.I like a strong smoke taste with them otherwise I think they taste a little fishy compared to other game fish.About 2 hours in the smoker at about 200-225 degrees.
