    Smoked Cheese Grits

    I went to a small Barbecue Cook Off Competition this morning and tasted what was claimed as Smoked Cheese Grits. I admit they were good cheese grits but not much if any smoke. I watched them take them off there smoker in a tin pan but I think the smoke was only charcoal. Any idea about smoking grits? Don't say liquid smoke. The terrorist for shore win. I do have some smoked sea salt. Thoughts?

    I guess you can place anything in the path of smoke, and thus called it "smoked." I would say the grits need to be really cold, and maybe spritzed a bit, to really bring the smoke to mouth.


      I would think for a smoky flavor you'd smoke the cheese first and then add it to grits. Sounds like a yummy idea, Guy. I'll eat grits almost any way they're served.



        Kathryn me too except without salt.


          So I guess I can't smoke raw grits on a sheet pan and expect the smoke flavor to be there after they are cooked?
          fzxdoc I seem to remember you talking about smoked salt with someone a while back maybe Ernest. I brought some and still have it. How would that work in grits? I have never used the smoked salt.


            Hmmm, Guy, I think Dr. Blonder says that for smoke to adhere, the surface should be cold and moist. That's why I was thinking that smoking cheese might work in cheese grits. I haven't smoked salt in my PBC, so can't comment on how much smokey flavor it brings to the table (or the grits, for that matter). Maybe someone else will chime in as well.



              I agree with Kathryn. I think smoking the cheese will get you the best result. If you smoke dry grits the taste will be diluted a lot by the water (just me thinking things through I haven't made this)...


                I think the same thing about smoking raw grits. Or at least that is the most probable thing, that the water will wash/cook away the smoke. I am going to wait and see if there is another genius among us but it looks like the cheese has it.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                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 because temperature control is so much easier.

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.
