    I was handed some white sea bass steaks by neighbor and i want to put them on the smoker.

    What is the best wood for smoking sea food?

    I'm out of "Alder" and cant find anyplace that carries it, I have Hickory and mesquite but not sure that would work out.

    Opinions PLEASE.....

    Apple works well. Just picked up some alder at big 5. Have you tried them?

    Why do you want to ruin perfectly good fish ? Smoke some mackerel or dope or something anything but WSB.:smoking33:

    Maple or hickory works just as well but i would never smoke seabass.

    Hey thanks for speaking up guys. I've never had sea bass before, and after reading your posts I'm having second thoughts on the SMOKE!

    I sure as hell don't want ruin it. So just season it, and grill it?
    Or just grill it?
