Units of Measurement:
1 Quart warm water
1 Cup Salt
1/2 Cup brown sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
4 Bay leaves
1 Tablespoon Black peppercorns
1 Quart ice water
2 Pound Trout fillets
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1/2 Cup Beets, peeled, large dice
1/2 Cup New potatoes, halved
2 green onions, thinly sliced
To Taste kosher salt
To Taste black pepper
4 Large eggs


  • 1

    In a medium saucepan, combine 1-quart warm water, salt, brown sugar, lemon zest, bay leaves, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until salt and sugar dissolve. Remove from heat and let steep for 15 minutes. Pour mixture over 1-quart ice water to cool.

  • 2

    Place the trout in a resealable bag or glass baking dish. Once the brine is cool to the touch, pour mixture over trout, cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  • 3

    Remove fish from brine and discard brine. Rinse fillets and pat dry. Lay them out on a cooling rack over a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate overnight, uncovered, to form the pellicle. This allows the smoke to adhere to the filets better.

  • 4

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 180˚F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.

    180 ˚F / 82 ˚C

  • 7

    Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beets and cook for 10 minutes or until almost tender.

  • 8

    Add the new potatoes and cook until both beets and potatoes begin to brown, 10 minutes.

  • 9

    Add flaked, smoked trout and green onions and cook until trout is warmed through, 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

  • 10

    Make 4 wells in the hash, crack one egg into each well, and season with salt, and pepper.

  • 11

    Place the skillet directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook until the whites are set and yolks are still runny, 5-6 minutes.

    375 ˚F / 191 ˚C
