My local butcher shop, Kelmar Meats, started to carry some local Rainbow Trout recently so I had to pick some up!!! It’s been a long while since I’ve done any fish on the Egg and I was planning to plank this with some Dizzy Pig Raging River spice rub.
However, after having a long chat with my butcher Steve and getting a cow anatomy lesson, I figured I didn’t really have time to soak a plank when I got home. I had another thought. Instead of planking the fish, I figured I could smoke it indirectly. So I coated it with some olive oil so it wouldn’t stick to the BBQ grate then I hit it with some Dizzy Pig Raging River… made first for salmon but works great on Rainbow Trout as well!!!
I preheated the Egg with the Plate Setter inside to about 400F, then removed it, added the Alder chips and set the Egg back up for an indirect cook.
After about 20 minutes at 375F the fish was done.
We served it up with some coconut basmati rice and a Guacamole Salad.
It was pretty tasty for a last minute change of plans. I think maybe slightly on the smoky side, next time I might use half the wood chips and maybe try some maple instead of alder.
