Garlic Smoked with Added Sea Salt

Garlic Smoked with
Added Sea Salt

Julie from Astoria, Oregon, shared her way of making garlic smoked with added sea salt. She dehydrates elephant garlic – and 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.

How-To Photos for Garlic Smoked with Added Sea Salt

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!
