Default Hot Smoked Bluefin Tuna

I used 2 pieces (1 lb ea.) of bluefin tuna.

Brine for ~2 1/2 hours, rinse in cold water, pat dry. Air dried for an hour.

Oriental Brine

3 cups water
1 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup sea salt
teaspoon onion powder
teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon ginger


I put the fish on the smoker at ~180-200.
Put a digital thermometer in one filet and smoked until internal temp of 140. Took about 3 hours.

Taste was fabulous but a bit crumbly. Next time I may pull it off at 130

It is. It came out a bit dry which is why I'd take it off a bit sooner. But the taste is wonderful.

I have used a kettle grille as a smoker. I just used a very small amount of briquettes (probably around ten, but it's been a few years),and built the pyramid off to one side. I would add another briquette or two when the temp started dropping. Eventually I put a couple bricks down the center to avoid as much direct heat as possible.

Worked fine for a long time, but the space was very limited. I definitely couldn't put two pork butts on there.

No reason why not.

That works, too.

Peter-

Are you sourcing bluefin locally? I've revisited this thread multiple times, and was thinking about giving it a shot. However, I'm only finding yellowfin locally here.

I guess my question is: Does anyone here know of a reputable online source for bluefin? Or, is it generally just a bad idea to try to ship it?

A good friend of mine who does multi-day fishing boat trips came back with a crapload of fish. He passed along ~100 pounds of fish to the S.H.I.T. herfers. 80-90% of it was bluefin and yellowtail. I will be trying a batch with yellowtail soon.

I can't comment on the feasibility of shipping. But I can tell you that the fish we received was frozen shortly after being caught and cleaned. I defrosted overnight in the fridge and went from there.
