7:20AM Cleaned the mackerel by head and gutting them and then making cuts every 3/4 of an inch down each side of the fish so the marinade will penetrate.
Next patted them dry with paper towels and placed them in my go-to fish marinade-
soy/ginger/sesame seed/red pepper flakes.
I’ll let them sit in the marinade til 9:30 or so. Check back around 10 for the next update!
Changed plans and opted for the Kettle as it was such a small cook. Set up the kettle for the snake method (arrange a fuse of coals around the perimeter so the coals act as a fuse with only so many coals going at once) looking for 225-250 degree grate temps.
Once it hit 200 I shut down the bottom vent to 3/4 closed and left the top vent wide open.
Placed the mackerel on offset of the coals.
