The parameters used to measure the quality of the smoked catfish are sensory value, the content of total acid and total phenols, water content and pH value. The results showed that the use of different kinds of smoke source materials significantly affected to the appearance and taste value, total phenols, and the pH value, but did not significantly affect to the value of the texture and smell, moisture content and the content of total acids. The use of smoke source mixture of husk and coco shell is the best treatment, showed by the highest sensory value, those are consistence 7.6, texture 7.8, odor, 7.6 smell and taste 7.7.
