Smoked Lemon Pepper Tuna



  1. To help keep the tuna moist, mix the Kosher salt and brown sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the dry brine on the both sides of the tuna. Place the tuna on a raised rack and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The next day, wipe off any excess salt/sugar from the tuna steaks and then brush both sides of the tuna with olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle both sides of the tuna with the Tennessee Whiskey Lemon Pepper Seasoning.
  5. Squeeze some lemon juice on the tuna steaks.
  6. Heat the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker to 190 degrees.
  7. Add a combination of peach and cherry wood. Use a fruit wood to add a delicate smoke flavor.
