    Smoked Steel Ala Len


    Two medium sized steelhead cut in horse shoes

    plastic 10 quart container
    1/2 full with water
    1.5 pounds non-iodized salt
    2 pound brown sugar
    3 cups real lemon
    10 tablespoons dill weed
    8 tablespoons red pepper flakes
    4 tablespoons garlic powder
    4 tablespoons onion powder
    3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

    Stir and place trout in the mixture.

    Place a plate or glass cutting board on the trout so the the trout are in the brine completely. Soak 14 hours. Next rinse and then reapply dill , garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes in the chest cavity and on both sides and put in the smoker. Then use the brine in the bowl in the bottom.

    Smoke until fish flakes off of bones easily.
