These are some good ideas! I have never really thought about using different liquids to soak the wood with, well I 've pondered about it but never have tried it. I only have used Hickory and Apple for Pork and Poultry, and Pecan and Mesquite Wood for Beef and selected Red Meats. I would definatly like to try using grapevines and tea smoking(chinese technique with rice, tea, and dried spices right?) For Steaks and A la minute preparations we cold smoke before hand in an Alto Sham-smoker.
Yeah but Nick catching the croc has to take a chunk out of your AM
Alligator in LA is chewy and you know I don't think chicken ever tasted like that....
is Salt water croc tender or strong flavored???
I gather corn cobs are soaked and then used just as wood chips....do they give a sweet corn taste....is it any corn cob? my farmers have popcorn now....I'll see about snagging some cobs. I have piggy in my freezer I need to cook/smoke /eat....it's FALLLLL
hehe, salty crocs never have any flavour because they're always sold frozen - supposedly to defeat any protozoan parasites (like thats going to work), but if you give them a half decent dressing, then it should work.
