My fiance and I went dipnetting Hooligan last weekend for the first time. No more than 20 minutes and we had all we wanted, since we didn't know how they would be or how much enthusiasm we'd have for cleaning them.
Anyway, she wanted to smoke the little buggers, so I picked up a smoker to give it a whirl. So far, so good. She found a recipe from no less than Alton Brown, for you Food Network fans, that imparts a bit of a pickled smokey flavor.
Next up, Copper River Reds. So, what are your favorite recipes and favorite smoking methods, for those willing to share.
Wishing all strained nets and sore backs this dipnetting season.
