So a conversation over beers led me to this: smoked ice.
Forgot to take a pic before hand, but put a 5 lb bag of ice in shallow pans with a domed foil cover to catch any drippings from the smoker.
Using hickory wood for smoke, leaving it in about 1 1/2 hrs to allow ice to melt and take the smoke.
I'll pour into ice trays and refreeze .
We'll be trying it this evening with a bourbon.

I'll post a pic after the smoke and and after the refreeze.
Wow, I thought you were kidding at first. You'll have to let us know how the taste is in your drink of choice.

We'll be passing through Laramie later this evening, driving with kids and listening to the Lion King sound track over and over makes a man thirsty. I'll volunteer as tribute for a taste test.

I just smoked a couple hams the other day as my wife was having some folks over. I did two hams. One was about 6.5 and the second 5.5. I used Hickory wood and they turned out fantastic! Oh and it was about 10 degrees.

Made 10 lbs. of spicy elk snack sticks over the holidays. Smoked for 4 hours at 125 degrees, finished in over on low. Like Cushman suggested, I used blankets (and boxes) for insulating the smoker to maintain temps.
The smoke and pepper flavor is great!

Now that's a smoker JV842. Snack sticks look great too el unit !!

Smoked ice tastes like weak liquid smoke without the funky after taste. Makes bourbon resemble scotch without the chewing on peat flavor. Consensus is one cube is enough.

Anyone firing up the smoker for the big game?
I'm going to throw a brisket and some pork ribs on Saturday morning, snow and cold forecast for Sunday.
What are you all smoking for the game?
