Stacks of smoked #Kokanee.  Third of four piles that have gone into the smoker in recent weeks, all from the state's Kokanee Give-Away that hands out recently-spawned fish to anyone arriving with a fishing license.  Funny side story: the wh

First three test #Kokanee coming out of an impromptu smoker dug into a retaining wall in the back yard.  Never tried this before but, based on how these taste, I'm hard pressed to ever be moved by any sales pitch for whatever smokers the lo
