            Let me know what you come up with! Probably have to add it to the baked goods since the chocolate chips don't melt. Maybe some flake salt sprinkled on top of cookies!

          Obviously they'd need to be cold-smoked.

            Indeed. The key is to create a decent amount of smoke with very little heat. A few pre-heated briquets and some wood chunks or chips (though you'll probably have to add more chips throughout the cooking process). The ice helps keep them as cool as possible as well.

          Clint Cantwell For something like this I would likely use my Bradley electric smoker. It's very well suited to cold smoking and while I don't use it for meat any more (except beef jerky), canned tomatoes, cheese and now chocolate chips are all a good fit for an electric.

            Tried this this week. Used an amazentube and my rec tec mini. Put a grill mat on the grill and spread chips across it. Smoked for 15 minutes. That was plenty of smoke for me. Used them in some Hatch green chili chocolate chip cookies. Must have been good, I ate the whole batch in three days.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill

            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

            Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

            Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

            masterbuilt gas smoker

            Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
