Smokehouse offers custom smoking, packaging, and freezing services
to the serious East Cape angler. We combine our hands-on, homestyle
preparation with the most modern smoking and packaging equipment
to ensure consistency and quality. Daily pickup service is available

from imported sugar maple and hickory woods, local fresh fish, sea
salt, brown sugar, and organic honey . . . thats it! Its
all natural with no added preservatives or chemicals.
First and foremost, our claim to fame is the smoking service. We
start by taking your catch and filleting it down to pure edible
fillet in a clean and sanitary environment. We then brine the fillet
in our secret mixture of sea salt, brown sugar, and organic honey.
The fillet is then placed on our oven racks and rolled into our
walk-in where it sits overnight. The next morning, the rack is placed
in one of our two commercial smokers where it is smoked using a
special blend of imported sugar maple and hickory. Each batch is
smoked by carefully following our exact specifications and procedures.
After the cooking cycle finishes, the oven rack is placed back in
the walk-in where the fish cools. Finally, the fish is professionally
vacuum-sealed, labeled, and placed back in the walk-in where it
stays until pickup. For the smoking service, we currently charge
*$3.50 per pound based upon the cleaned fillet weight of the fish.
We also offer the flash freezing service. After your catch is filleted
in a clean and sanitary environment, it is rinsed in a salt-ice
brine and drained. It is then professionally vacuum-sealed and placed
in one of our two bionic commercial freezers at minus 10 degrees,
where it sits until pickup. For the freezing service, we currently
charge *$1.25 per pound based upon the cleaned fillet weight of
REMEMBER . . . Absolutely, positively no one else

allow your fish be handled in an unsanitary manner to save a few
bucks, let us take care of it and, whichever service you choose,

*Current prices are $4.50 per pound to smoke and $1.50 per pound
