Well, Shoreman turns 65 on Monday. I'm not looking for happy birthdays (but if you want to leave one, I won't mind), but what I am looking for are those good smoked trout recipes you guys have.

My wife couldn't wait for Monday to give me my birthday present, so here's a picture.

Looks like a trash can, huh. It's a Masterbuilt 30 inch Electric Smokehouse Smoker. As I type this, it's sitting on the porch going through the curing process.

If you'll remember the post about the Maranello Restaurant and my wife having the grilled prawns with the applewood smoked bacon on them, I think the smoker is for her as much as it is for me.

So, if you have a good smoked trout recipe (or any other good smoke recipe, for that matter) and you think I should have it, why don't you shoot me an email at Better to do it that way than clog up comment section of Blogger.

And Bob, I know you'll see this and think your trout days are over, but I plan on sharing the smoked trout with you and some fresh too.

Till next time.



  1. I don't have any recipes for you..... but

    Happy Birthday Mark.

  2. Happy B Day. Lucky you with that smoker. I look forward to seeing some posts about some tasty ribs. Tight Lines

  3. Woo-hoo... You're now oficially a apologies necesary, preferred parking, semi or full retirement and most fishing licence required (at least in Ontario). Seriously... Mark, Happy B Day and with that smoker... think red pepper & chinese 5 spice!
