    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.....

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

    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?
