In 'The Big Six', the Death and Glories go to great trouble to smoke the eels given to them by Harry Bangate, but the results are poor -in fact inedible.  I think this is due to their use of pitch pine in the smoking process.  Apparently soft woods are unsuitable for use in smoking fish, and pine would impart a nasty, resinous flavour.
