Wow, reminds me of growing up in Mammoth Lakes on Lake Mary. Mom and Dad used a old refrigerator that was broken to smoke trout. Hot plate with a #10 tin with chips, load the racks and plug it in. It became a hit with the guest at the lodge, they loved having their fish smoked to eat and take home. Every Wednesday, was pot Luck day, those guest who wanted fixed their favorite main course dish , my parents supplied the salads.
Smoked trout was a big crowd favorite, everyone contributed their catch, we kept the smoker going 24/7.
Great memory, you need another smoker for sure!
