  • 6-8 rainbow trout
  • 1 gallon water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce


Clean your fresh fish and butterfly them. Place them in the brine for 1hour. Start grill on smoke, lid open, for at least 5 minutes, then turn grill to 225 degrees. Take the fish out of the brine and pat dry. Place fish directly on grill grate for one and a half to two hours, depending on thickness of fish. Fish is done when it turns opaque and starts to flake. Serve hot or cold.
