    I either grill 'em in a pot of hot grease, or in the oven smothered in garlic, butter, and lemon pepper. :roll_eyes:

    Grilled catfish does sound good, but I've never tried it. Blackened maybe...that sounds good.

    Welcome to the BOC BTW!

    Have you ever visited the BOC Diner? It's a good place to check out. It's not all about catfish, but there are catfish recipes too.

    At my camp I keep one of those hinged basket things hanging from a nail, and a stash of olive oil spray, lemon pepper, and garlic salt...hose 'em down with olive oil, season to taste, 3-5 minutes/side over hot oak coals, and enjoy. Quick, easy, very little cleanup.:big_smile:

    Even tho this thread will likely be moved to the diner whear it should be ,I'll post one of mine. I like to use a fillet from a cat say around 7-10 lbs,
    coat with olive oil and lightly salt and pepper,sprinkle lemon pepper all over and rub in well,place on grill with inderect heat.
    I like to add some fruitwood chips for a bit of smoke flavor to mine as well. any fruit will do ,apple and cherry are my favorite fish smoking woods.

    I cant say how long to cook,I just cook till it flakes .

    Layer sliced potatoes, seasoned catfish fillets, sliced onions, sliced tomatoes and a stick of butter in aluminum foil. Seal it up and cook for about a hour or until potatoes are done. Works just as well in the oven or coals in a camp fire.

    Broiled Catfish

    Soak overnight in salt water

    Use 1/2" thick fillets

    Rub with a good grade olive oil

    Likely salt and pepper

    Sprinkle with Emeril's Original Essence

    Sprinkle very liteley with Garlic power

    Broil until it flakes about 5 to 7 Min's.

    Yea, that's the way I do it, except I'm too cheap to buy a grilling baket, I use two small broiling racks wired together w/ the fillets in between them, and like you I coat w/ olive oil then season, then put on the grill. I like grilled catfish. According to Weber's big book of grilling you supposed to coat the fillets (NOT the grill) with oil, season, and then cook the fish directly on the grill and turn them once, but I can never have much luck without the baskets because the fish still seems to stick to the grill. Maybe we have an expert fish griller on here that can tell us how....

    I smoke them, I use some melted butter a little seasoned salt or lemon pepper , even garlic salt and smoke them just where you can put your hand on the smoker for a few seconds before you have to pull it off until the fish gets kinda flaky you can tell when its done. This will make you wanna smack your momma and kick your dog.:smile2:

    Larry,If any meat sticks to the grill,it ain't quite ready to turn,It will release itself when the protiens are cooked.

    i grilled some catfish a couple times and i must say it is goooooooooood,i put some lemonpepper and i think some lawreys season salt on it.would recomend trying it if you havn't.just add your favorite spice's and you wont be disapointed!IMO not much different than other grilles fishes so i'm guessing if you like grilled fish you'll like grilled catfish.:0a26:

    I learned somewhere that any meat will be stuck till just when its time to turn it,theres a short window ,then it will stick by burning to the grates ,Keep a close eye on it and try to lift ,when its ready it will be easy . it takes a lot of practice ,I screw up more often than not :sad2::smile2:
