  • 4 Trout Fillets buy pre-filleted, or fillet it yourself, check out the video in the notes section
  • 2 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • ½ Tbsp Maldon Salt for finishing optional


  • Preheat smoker to 225 degree, we used apple wood, a fruit wood adds a nice touch. Trout cooks fast, to maximize flavor best to use a low cooking temperature.
  • Remove bones from trout fillet, if not already done.
  • Brush all four trout fillets with EVOO and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place upon smoker and cook for roughly 25 minutes.
