Live Smoke- Tuna Steaks On The @WeberGrills Smokey Mountain Smoker 

5:29AM 6/28/16

One of my fishermen was kind enough to donate some tuna to the cause. -A simple soy/sesame/red pepper flake marinade overnight and now they are placed on the grates to dry for an hour or two.


7:00AM

Light eight briquettes in the chimney and set up the charcoal basket in the smoker using the snake method with cherry chips and mesquite chunks.  The charcoal will slowly work its way around not having the entire basket of charcoal going at once will help keep the temps down.  We are looking to smoke around 250 degrees.

The tuna is placed with small gaps in between so the smoke can come on up through hitting each piece of tuna.  The Maverick 732 grate probe is placed and another probe for the internal temp of the tuna.  We will look to bring the internal temp on the tuna to about 135 F.
