Has anyone tried using herbs instead of wood. Have a lot of basil etc that needs chopping down.

Don'T know about fish but you could smoke tomato [wonder how that would go]

The basil gets pretty thick stems after a while. Rosemary gets a little woodie also.

I tried dried chillies but didn't have enough (Just threw them on coals), figured if I used a foil pocket with hole it would have been better, same with herbs, I reckon make a foil pocket and put stems leaves crushed in and see if it works, someone has to try it :poke:

I reckon rosemary would have to be an obvious one here to try... My plant is a bit too small to use it for smoking.. It gets hammered just from a roast at the moment.

(Same post as in BYAP, so sorry to those who have read it already :P )

Got a portable fish smoker from E, 43cm x 27cm for $80, stainless steel with 2 metho burners, (will have to stop drinking the metho now :wink: ) smoked some snapper fillets with Karri dust from GWH sawmill, these I smoked for 20 minutes, maybe a few minutes too long, but I reckon 2 nice trout would take less than 20 minutes, fish here tasted fine, fillets were a bit thin, certainly not bad for first go with new toy :hello:

This pic is setting up, only 2 small handfuls of dry sawdust needed, do remember that metho flame is hard to see :help: :blackeye:

We just tried smoking fish for the first time....using a wok. It was very successful, and certainly has potential!
We used trout freshly caught from the swimming pool, filleted.
The wok was lined with foil and in the centre went white rice, brown sugar, green tea leaves, lemon zest, and rosemary. A trivet goes over the top of these ingredients. The foil was scrunched down and the wok put on the heat.

When it started smoking, the fillets were added, the lid put on and cooked on medium for 10 minutes, then let stand for 5 minutes.

The cooking worked really well....the flavour was not bad but could be better...more experimentation needed!!

Got around to smoking some silver perch. Used the pizza oven and a simple salt, brown sugar and garlic mix. The fish was a little salty but tasted great. Will try a different mix next time. Will also be trying the recipe at the beginning of this thread. :joy:
