Secret Recipe Smoked Catfish

My husband has done this twice for us.  It's his secret recipe, and as soon as I pry it out of his mind (secretly write it down as I help him), I'll post it here. 

I can post the basics. 

Catch a catfish. 

Fillet it. 

Take the skin off and cut it into small, equal sized portions.  Add it to the brine (secret recipe here).  LOL

12 hours later, strain and rinse, then set out to dry until tacky (You do not want it wet.  Just sticky.).  

Smoke it 4-6 hours at 160°  (the large pieces was the carp)

Take off when done.  Eat and enjoy.
