THIS IS FOR 5-10 LBS. OF FISH

2/3 CUP BROWN SUGAR   1/2 TSP ONION POWDER
1/4 CUP SALT             1 TSP GARLIC
1 1/2 CUPS SOY SAUCE   1/2 TSP TABASCO
1 1/2 CUPS WATER       1 1/2 CUPS WHITE WINE
1 TSP PEPPER

SOAK FISH FOR 8-10 HRS. REMOVE AND DRAIN. I EITHER USE CHERRY OR APPLE TO SMOKE THE FISH THE RECIPE DOES NOT STATE A SMOKING TEMP, BUT I USUALLY SET THE TEMP FOR ABOUT 130 DEGREES FOR A SHORT TIME TO HELP DRY IT AND THEN ADD THE CHIPS AND KICK THE TEMP UP TO BETWEEN 150-175. SMOKE IT TILL THERE IS NO OIL ON TOP OF THE FISH AND IT IS FIRM. I SMOKE IT WITH AN ELECTRIC SMOKER SO IT DOES TAKE LONGER IF YOUR USING A CHARCOIL SMOKER IT REALLY WONT TAKE VERY LONG BECAUSE OF THE HIGHER TEMPS.

I ALSO ADD SOME WHITE PEPPER, USE A LITTLE MORE SUGAR AND ADD MORE TABASCO AND AT TIMES JUST ADD DIFFERENT SEASONINGS—YOU KNOW AS EMERIL STATES TO KICK IT UP A NOTCH
