Pine smoked trout
Use a wire holder to get a smoky flavor when cooking trout. The idea is to be able to turn the meat over like the type made to hold hot dogs or hamburgers.
Cut server pine boughs and place them on your campfire. Lay the holder with your trout directly on top. Light the pine boughs, then the fire will sear, cook, and smoke your trout in about a minute before burning out. Just turn the holder over to sear the other side ? repeat the process. A couple of boughs and less than a minute for each side is perfect for a half-pound trout.
Use only a stainless steel pan for good taste.
Cut fish into small pieces ? you will need about 5 cups of fish. Soak in a quart of water and one cup of salt for 2 days. Rinse fish in cold water and drain. Then pour two cups of white vinegar over the fish and put it in the fridge for another 2 days. Pour it off.
Next, cook the following mix for five minutes and let cool
2 cups white vinegar
1 ? cups sugar

After it cools pour it over the fish, and place slices of lemon and onions on top. Refrigerate for 5 days, then remove the spices and pack into jars. It makes three pints.

Bake the loaf at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Let it cool five to 10 minutes before cutting.
