This is less a recipe than an idea, but I couldn't wait to try it Smiley  I got my bf an electric smoker for Christmas, and I was thinking all along that I could smoke things like salt and onions on the side while he's cooking bigger items like brisket.  So I found 3 lbs of (probably cheap a$$) sea salt at Big Lots for $1.99.  Yesterday I put a thick layer of it in a cast iron skillet and put it on direct smoke (apple and hickory) for about 4 hours, and then left it in the smoker to get even more smoke flavor overnight with the smoker off.  All I did was stir it a few times and this is the result:





Big Red:




Some of the wood chips caught a little bit of fire in the first hour, so my bf is concerned that it'll taste a little too "camp fire-y" but it smells just like anything else we've smoked so far.  Anyway, if you have a smoker, this is literally the easiest thing to make ever, I can't wait to use it (I think it would make a great gift too!).

We have both smoked salt and smoked cracked pepper.  They are both commercially produced, I love that you made your own!

Mmmmmmm...

I'm wondering how easy would this be to produce with Alton Brown's method of hot-smoking salmon.  Cardboard box, extension cord, many dowels, disposable pie plate, hot plate and of course, wood chips.  Smiley

I'd probably toss in a hunk of salmon in there as well.  Cheesy
