You can prepare the hot-smoked trout a day ahead.
Note Drying the trout after brining creates a skin, called a pellicle, that helps seal in the moisture before smoking the fish. Indirect grilling is cooking away from the heat, using the top rack. It's important to have your coal base well established and glowing before adding woodchips.
