Julie's elephant garlic on Nesco dehydratorJulie's elephant garlic on Nesco dehydrator

Julie from Astoria, Oregon, wrote in and told me about how she dehydrates elephant garlic – it is amazing!

She then smokes it in a smoker, and enjoys the results of her labor, but wondered if we had any suggestions or improvements to what she was already doing?

Our short answer: No.

In fact, we asked Julie to send in photos and tell us how she makes her amazing garlic salt!

Wright's Hickory SeasoningWright's Hickory Seasoning

First, Dehydrate the Elephant Garlic
We Use Our Nesco® Dehydrator

Julie says: "We start by dehydrating the elephant garlic in a Nesco® dehydrator at 125°F for almost 24 hours, rotating the pans every 8 hours."

Use A Propane Smoker

"After that we have a propane smoker we use to smoke the garlic.

We use a 'Misto' sprayer (see photo showing big red bottle of 'Wright's All Natural Hickory Seasoning') to spray liquid smoke and then put the garlic on a small screen.

Dry smoke for one hour.

The garlic comes out toasted brown."

"After crushing it in a magic bullet, we mix it with a fine sea salt and use it for seasoning on a double-steamer chicken after it's cooked."

"We also smoke our own sea salt by mixing pink Himalayan and white coarse sea salt with crushed garlic. Smoke the mixture for seven hours – spraying occasionally with liquid smoke. It is amazing."

The Ideal Way to Use It:

Julie continues:

"We just vacuum-packed about 60 jars of homemade sea salt with garlic.

We are going to be smoking the elephant garlic tomorrow!

We steam chicken thighs with our sea salt and spade L ranch seasoning – and use the garlic powder for taste after."

Thanks so much for sharing, Julie!
