    Smoking Salt

    I want to smoke some salt for a new twist with salt. I am a novice at this so what is the best wood to use, how much and how long? Any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!

    You need to watch the magic of salt video in our videos channel.

            That video mentions smoking salt only for a brief moment and gives a couple of options.

            I saw a recipe once where the guy used a grilling basket like you'd use to grill veggies. He put coffee filters in the basket and put the salt in the filters. Seemed to get pretty good results and it's stuff most of us probably already have in the house. I'm going to give it a shot next time I fire up the smoker.

              In the salt video it was suggested to wrap a brick in foil and pop it into the freezer for a couple of hours. Then, fire up your smoker and once it's going put the brick into it and pour salt on top of the brick where the cold temp from the foil will draw the smoke. I might try this next weekend when I am smoking ribs on my mother-in-laws OTG with the Smokenator and hover grill.

                We have tried it. It needs to be made into a wet slurry then smoked and dried. But we found it adds little flavor to the food.

                  I have cold smoked salt once in a bbq foil tray - along with some cheese ( the cheese was not in the tray). Using an Amazintube in my diy electric without any heat. The salt took on a nice golden brown color and smoke flavour but it didn't last long even in a ziplock bag. And the small amount of salt i use on my food didn't really give me much....

                    Good info. Real-world experience.

                    Sounds like not much point in pursuing. Getting the smoke on is one thing, but if it doesn't stay on, then not much point.
