Smoked Marinated Game Fish

from Ralph Crane, Northridge, California / "I have used this recipe with Salmon and Barracuda and I am sure that it would be good with other fish as well."

1 T dried dill weed
1 T mustard seed
3 T salt
1/2 Cup dark brown sugar
3 bay leaves
4cups water
1 pound fish fillets

Mix all ingredients except fish in a bowl to dissolve salt and sugar. Transfer to a one gallon ziplock plastic bag. Add fish and seal bag. Place bag in a rectangular glass dish to support bag and refrigerate overnight. Next day remove fish from plastic bag and pat dry. Place two tablespoons maple wood chips in smoker and place on rack. Smoke at medium heat for 20-25 minutes.
