Smoked garlic sea salt ... hmm — just imagine its many uses for seasoning bland veggies.

Julie from Astoria, Oregon, dehydrates elephant garlic — and it is amazing!

In the image above, you can see Julie's slices of mammoth garlic dehydrating on a Nesco dehydrator. Read more about Nesco dehydrators here.

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 Smoked Garlic 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."

Crush Dried Garlic In A Magic Bullet

"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 best way to store your smoked garlic sea salt is by vacuum-packing it.
Julie continues:

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

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!
