mr d, ive smoked a lot of nords. i have a brinkman charcoal smoker. works great. i have done it on a weberit works not like the brinkman. heres how i do it. take 8 fillets, 4 nords with skin on. take 1 cup sugar 1cup pickling salt 2qts water, stir till disolved, i add some soy saucs also.brine minumum 8 hours. then spray 2 cookie sheets with pam, bake @ 250 degrees for 45 minutes or till meat pullsaway from skin. soak a 3lb coffee can of smaller smokin chips for an hour. when coals are white hot drain water off chips put on charcoul add fish to racks and let smoke till meat is golden brown. about 2hours. good luke and let me know if they turn out. by the way i noticed you are from new london, i have a camper at old wagon on north long.

Glenn, sounds pretty straight forward, letting the oven do most of the work and then finish up/get the taste in the smoker. What were you trying to say about the Weber? Thats all I have...

How do you like the campground on N. Long? Hows the fishing?

blackjack, the time i used the weber the fish seemed a little more dryed out than normal. id put foil down next time. my smoker has a water pan in it. also when using foil spray it with vegtable oil. i really like the campground. we are real good friends with the owners. fishin is ok if you know the lake, especially sunfish. eyes and nords are hard to get with all the feed. good crappies fishin at times. give us a holler out there some weekend. we are in what they call the north woods.

Go to a meat market and get whats called. Sweeter then Sweet. I have used this for years smoking fish,duck,phesents,turkeys,chickens. Everything. It works great. Its alot of money, but it worth it. Try it out and let me know what you think of it.

bassnspear, what exactly is sweeter than sweet? never heard of it. is it a smoking wood chip? my little smoker cant cook and smoke it all at one time. would like to try a bigger unit. i hate the thought of ruining any thing i try cooking.

sweeter then sweet is the type of brine that is used to brine the fish over a period of 7 days, before you smoke it. You can ither smoke it work wood chips, or with saw dust. But its a great brine that i have used for years.

mr d, yea frozen fish work very well. ill even give up another of my secrets. if you freeze your fish, and i assumeyou leave the skin on your nords,after you clean them put them in water and add about a half to a cup, just estimating, of vinegar to the fish and water. leave them sit over nite, rinse them off and walla no more slime.

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice
    • EyeChsr
      Not sure how much ice, but guys walking out with portables in the bay this morning.
    • timjones
      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
