    bjd4's Note:

    My uncle was the fish smoker in the family until he passed away. No longer are we treated to his wonderful smoked fish. During one conversation I said "heaven forbid" but what if? His answer to my recipe request was salt, sugar and water. And of course it did not taste like uncle's. Found a couple of recipes, tweaked and combined them and I seem to have passed the smoked fish taste test. Still doesn't taste like uncle's but think of him every time I make and taste smoked fish.
