fresh cedar plank rainbow

Dan went fishing on Sunday with a friend who has lived in the area all his life & knows exactly when & where the fish bite. Sure enough, Dan came home with two rainbow trout that we promptly cooked for dinner!


We soaked a couple of cedar planks in water for about an hour and heated them up in our kamado smoker for a couple of minutes.

We then lay the fish fillets across the planks and sprinkled them with some Kootenay Spice Lemon Garlic Pepper and some fresh dill.

Smoking rainbow

A few minutes smoked at high heat, followed by a layer of BBQ sauce and a few more minutes on the grill (12 minutes of cooking all together), we were enjoying some delicious, fresh rainbow trout.
