Smoking Tullibee

Recommended Posts

If I catch some tullibee where can I get them smoked? Will meat markets do fish smoking for you? I'm in the NW metro if anyone knows a specific place to get this done. I found the location of some tullibee and being able to get them smoked would really give me some motivation to go after them. How do they taste? I've heard it's good. Thanks for the help.

Call Osseo Meats, see if they'll smoke them for you. They are really delicious when smoked!

1+ osseo meats.

Tullibies are pretty good smoked. They go for a premium at the store so catching your own is nice.

We recently did a batch and they turned out awesome. They are alot of fun to catch, so why not find a way to enjoy them. Smoked fish, saltine crackers and a cold beer!

I called around last year and found several places that will do them. The price varies quite a bit and most have a minimum amount to start.

Just do it your self man, you can make a uds (ugly drum smoker) really easy and fast, just make sure to take your time smoking them, I just did a batch on Monday and it took me five hours to smoke but turned out great, the secert is in your brine

Just do what I did and by a Little Chief Smoker. After you smoke a couple times, it's already paid for itself. Comes with a nice little smoking cookbook that will get you started. From there, you can make your own "secret" brine. I do salmon in mine probably about 3 x's a year. It's SUPER good. I have friends that drop off fillets for me to do all the time. I just charge them a chunk of the fillet to do it. It's worth looking into.

Finding rolling papers that big is kinda tough. They hard to light also, but once you get them lit................watch out!....couldn't resist.

White Mountain smokers from L & M fleet are a great LP smoker for $170. Smokes the Tuli's in 5 hours.

A friend that i fish with uses his holland grill if he has a smaller batch and they turn out really good. Otherwise, its tough to beat the 55 gallon drum with some chickenwire or old refridge grates. Top it off by smoking it with some apple wood.

Smoked tullies are da bomb.

Every man should have a smoker in their arsenal. My allegiance lies with the Weber Smokey Mountain especially with the price of pork being so low. It is a Weber which speaks for itself.

Find a good brine recipe (I am having problems finding my go to brine) and smoke them for a few hours.

I have a brine recipe I'm willing to share. The best I've ever had. It came from an old guy 20 years ago in Wyo. that he used to smoke trout. It works great for just about any fish but super great for any oily fish. If you want it I'll post it here.

If you kow some one that has apple tree branches they have trimmed off work out good. PUT REMOVER THE BAR. Then soak in water for an hour. If you buy a smoker you then start doing smoker meats. pheasasnt,chicken, and even jerky.

Again, if you don't want to invest in an expensive smoker, the little chief is a great investment. I think I got mine for about $80. Buy a bag of apple chips, and you're ready to smoke. Cook book included to get you started. The really nice thing is it's small and you can store it just about anywhere. Nothing better than smoked ribs...mmmmm....ribs....
