The local farmers market last week and one of the vendors had hickory smoked salt.

In about 15 minutes Uncle Google and help me figure out a plan......here it goes....



Two pan splatter shields. Foil around to help dirvert smoke.



This was 2 cups of kosher salt total.



Hickory pellets in the Amazing Smoker.

I'll check it in the am.

Well that didn't work so well. This was after 8 hours.



This was after 16 hours. I didn't stir the salt.

After 24 hours.



I made some of the best looking copper smoke smelling foil!

I am now trying sea salt. I misted it with a small amount of water to help the smoke stick.

You gotta stir that salt around. The smoke does not penetrate the salt. It sticks to the outside.

What temp did you smoke it at?

I've done a few dozen batches and have noticed that cold smoking works the best to get the smoke into the salt mineral. Heat smoking actually works against you with salt. . .

Just a thought... Wink
