This has to be the best smoke fish I have ever made. Hope I can replicate it. A Buddie stopped by and he tasted it. Said it was the best he has ever tasted. I went with 4 hours of hickory where as I only two hours of smoke normally . I think that made a big difference. He asked what I put in the brine and I said none-ya. He said WHAT  ???
I said none-ya business  ;D
All packed up and ready for the fridge.

Man that looks good. I had smoked rainbow trout for the first time a couple weeks ago and it made me go out and by a smoker myself just so we can enjoy it any time we want.

Quick question for you though, if you do seal the fish in the food saver bags you used, how long will it keep for? The wife has the same sort of shrink wrapping thing that she never uses, guess she will HAVE to use it now|!

I really couldn't say. It never lasts to long.  :)
Should be good for up to a year I'm guessing.

Hi Rubberdown, and welcome to the forum!

Once vac-sealed, the fish should be immediately frozen to avoid risk of botulism. That's according to Canadian Food Inspection Agency regs.

Once frozen in Foodsaver quality bags, Foodsaver claims 2 years. But, as Devo says, it never lasts that long!!
