    Buddy said he would supply the crab. I told him I would research recipes on SMF. Well he dropped off the crab yesterday, and its imitation crab meat. So now I'm trying to figure out what to do with this stuff..

    Any suggestions?

    The amnts or amnps are on standby. Just don't know how long to smoke it for. Also need some recipes.

    you have to make the dip too ?? or just smoke the meat ?? dunno If I would add any seasoning... let the dip itself have the seasoning ... as far as how long.. you'll just have to sample every hour ...

    Consider adding a hand-held smoker to your smoking arsenal.  It would make this a piece of cake.

    Imitation Crab? Imitation smoke! I say use liquid smoke and act like you smoked it! That fake crab would be tuff to smoke.

    Its my sisters Dip recipe, my Sister's recipe. Just swap shrimp for plastic crab, add a couple of drops of liquid smoke. Best after being set in the reefer for a couple a days for flavors to settle in.

    Plastic crab + plastic smoke = Dip never admitt to liquid smoke (not around here anyway, sheesssh)

    I'm smoking some eggs tomorrow, I'll toss a few pieces in with them and see what happens.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    Bearcarver has several recipes here that use surimi (imitation crab). Maybe a quick search will yield some results.

    Thanks dirt. I did a search for "imitation crab" and came up with nothing. However I had no clue that surimi was the same thing. I'll do a new search or PM bear.
