Ha! Sorry...been busy, but heard about this from Biglures, and couldn't resist. I stumbled upon this kind of by accident just doing the usual...but here's what I do.

First:

Brown trout...between 20-24", no more, no less...either too big or too small. 22-23" is perfect, although shore and I grilled up a fattie 24.5" one time with a fat line from the shad kill, and man...amazing. Here's why the browns...

...rainbows are not primarily piscivorous. They will eat fish, yes, but when we would cut them open, we would find moss in every stomach, salad with the fixins [hellgrammites or whatever else they eat in there...don't know don't care], and it showed in their build and meat texture alongside equal sized browns...just wasn't the same. A brown of that size would have at least 2 sculpins in his or her stomach or baitfish if they were running...threadfins and gizzards. Their meat was much juicier, reddish pink, and on the grill literally...LITERALLY...drips with the fatty acids...good good stuff and good for you. This recipe, btw, I cooked for a few of my college buddies who don't even fish, and they loved it so much they requested I bring some to a party later that week. So I went to work, fished my butt off that week, and delivered...they, and the rather attractive women that showed at their party, were rather gracious and really enjoyed it. Too bad they don't farm raise browns....beats out rainbows hands down. here goes:

Get'cher brown...cut off the head and tail [its fun to do puppet shows with the heads btw...we had a few legals one day and did a 4 part mens quartet of Billy Joel's "For the Longest Time" and video taped...maybe that's just my sick sense of humor...]

Now steak it up in about 2 inch sections all the way down. Easy enough.

Now the fun stuff...marinate those steaks in beer and a steak marinade of choice [A1 seemed to always work well] for about 30 minutes at least, preferably an hour or two. By the way this works alot better and tastes alot better if you do it the day of...the ones I brought frozen down here are good but not the same].

Good, let it get into the meat. Btw, LEAVE THE SKIN ON...BEST PART!

Now, fire up that grill and get it going well. Here's what I do.
Take some honey, first off, and drizzle the top side as you set the steaks down on a plate. Did I say drizzle? Lather it up...then put on some seasoned salt and a seasoning or two or your choice...I like Tony Chacerres, the cajun stuff, but not too much. Blackening stuff works well too in small doses with that.
Then, put a bit more honey on top. This not only adds a GREAT flavor with the beer and marinade, but helps the spices cohesion with the flavor of the meat, and keeps it from just falling off as you throw i on the grill. Place that side face down on the grill, and then repeat the same procedure with the up side while the other side is cooking. This works only really well with the browns. For the rainbows? Try this...just cut the fillets up into small bites and batter them in Hooter's wing batter and sauce...amazing amazing stuff. That's what we usually do wit hthem anyway. Enjoy!

Tubs, you are an odd one.

The recipe is top notch, I can attest to that but you will never
catch me doing any "trout head puppet show"- especially to Billy Joel, double especially on tape!
