My New Bradley Digital Smoker


Hi I just smoked my first King Fish using my new Bradley Digital smoker.


Smoked King Fish
From Gator
 


 


Hi I just smoked my first King Fish using my new Bradley Digital smoker.
Came out mouth watering, with NO fishy taste!
I would recommend anyone give this a try.

The smoker right out of the box worked excellent, and the temp kept right at 150 degrees.
 
Ingredients:

Marinade

Injectable Marinade

Directions:

  1. Combine brown sugar and milk. Stir until sugar is fully dissolved. Use enough milk and syrup to cover the fish, and enough brown sugar to sweeten to your particular taste.
  2. Place fish in one gallon resalable plastic bag's, and pour marinade over the fish. Refrigerate and marinate overnight turning bag over occasionally.
  3. Before smoking, mix the ingredients for the inject able marinade together in a small bowl, until all ingredients are dissolved and well blended.
  4. Remove fish from the plastic bags, and pat dry with paper towels. Just before placing fish in smoker, inject fish until the marinade flows out of the injection site. Do this in several spots.
  5. Before putting the marinade in the injector, whisk the mixture well to emulsify all the ingredients together.
    • For the syrup, I prefer using Maple or Butter Lite Syrup.
  6. I also sprinkled brown sugar on the top of the fish before smoking.
  7. During smoking you can inject more marinade.
  8. Smoke for about 4-5 hours ( depending on the thickness of the fish ) at 150 degrees F; use apple smoke pucks for 4 hours (check fish for doness at the 4 hour mark). About 30 minutes before fish is done, sprinkle some additional brown sugar to give it a glaze.
  9. Fish is done when it flakes easily.

Good Luck
