    Have some fish soaking in liquid brine right now for smoking. After they are done and set out to dry, can I vacuum seal them and put them in the freezer for latter use? Thanks

    You can, but the extra moisture now in the meat may cause a texture problem when you defrost and cook.

    Why not smoke it, remove the bones and skin, and vacuum seal the meat. It should stay much better this way, especially if on the dry side.

    I was going to smoke them right away as I normally do but the weather changed on me for the next couple of days! Rain and wind!
