The kids went fishing and came home with a boat load of rainbow trout. These are in the 10" or smaller range. Naturally they want them smoked. I used to have a good recipe for trout but that was years ago and I have slept since then. I have done Mr. T's recipe for salmon but can't remember if he had one for trout. I am wondering if any of you have a tried and true recipe for smoking these small trout?

I don't have a recipe but let me know how all turns out!
Where is Mr. T. when you need him?
Wow, thanks for that link, dakotasmoke!. I've used Mr. T's salmon brine for many years. I have never smoked trout just salmon. I love trout cooked any way, but grilled especially. Mike, if you discover a good way to smoke that most fragile of fish, let us know! If it were me I'd give it about 15 minutes in the smoker (assuming whole not fillets), then finish on the grill to char the skin. Very fragile fish subject to overcooking.
Thanks for the web site dakotasmoke. I just sent an email to Mr. T. I will let you if he responds and what he has to say on the subject. Thanks for the info Jay. I love trout this size fried in butter with just a little salt and pepper. That was the way my Mom used to do them.
