What is great about being GrillGrrrl is that everyone loves to talk to me about their BBQ and Grilling experiences, regardless of background. Who doesn’t love to eat great food? It’s the common denominator of human experience. So I was totally shocked to find a stove top smoker arrive at my doorstep out of the blue a few weeks ago from a good friend I know from the Miami sailing community. Not only is my friend Oren adept at fixing racing boats, he’s also an avid BBQ-er and we had a lenghty discussion about his stove top smoker he uses for lickity-split smokiness! And then one arrived on my doorstep.
Put the box on top of the burner on medium and let it do its magic. Once I could visibly smell smoke, (about 5 minutes) I let the trout smoke for about 15 minutes (I used Alder wood chips by the way- perfect for fish and seafood). I didn’t do anything to the trout other than put salt and pepper on it and it turned out awesome.
