anyone out there making smoked salt?  I plan on giving this a go next month when i get a green egg on loan.  I'm guessing i'll puree fresh pods with chunky pink salt i have then lay out on a tray to smoke.

Well, how did it turn out? I was waiting for someone to chime in but it hasn't been too active today. I know I've seen quite a few smoked salt threads in the past, did you end up referencing any of them?

I blended the pods with the salt and let them sit together in a jar for a few hours, then smoked them in a foil tray and let the heat go up a bit which helped dry it out while it smoked.  Great flavor and not over smokey.  You can still taste the strong super hot flavor.  Letting it dry on the counter some more before making the salt smaller again this time i will use the coffee grinder, pleased with the first attempt and will try another batch today with red pods and cherry wood.  I used pecan wood on this first batch.

Instead of grinding it now in the coffee grinder, how about putting some in a salt mill to use on the spot?

Because you took it sideways by tilting your phone, and the software on your phone corrected it in view mode (called an orientation tag) but the file is still technically sideways.

Basically the pic is sideways and when you upload it to FB or modern sites it knows to rotate it, but this software does not. It's called an EXIF orientation tag. You can click edit and save before uploading and it should fix it.

Sorry had to go there 

 

Salt will take hot or cold smoke.  Just gotta make sure it's clean blue smoke for the whole smoke. Nice colour on the the finished product :D

Looks great, did you blend the pods while they were fresh or dried?
