  1. I was going to smoke some Cornish hens and had some room left it the smoker. since I was low on smoked kosher salt. I figured might as well fill it up. It was hot smoked at 215 deg for 6.5 hours. while the yard bird was smoking. Then turned off the heat and let the AMNPS burn till it ran out of pellets. Not sure how long it burnt. i was using apple pellets.

    here are a few pics.


    Happy smoken.

    We have been using a Smoked Serrano Salt that we picked up from Whole foods. When the hatch chiles go on sale this summer we are going to make some Smoked Hatch Chile Salt.
  10. Looks good! I do mine on a screen so I don't have to keep stirring it to distribute the smoke throughout.

    not to make this look like another not thought out question but here goes, this screen your discussing mush be a very fine mesh to not allow a of the salt to work thru to the fods below? or are you doing it over a pann (and the purpose is not full circulation) and still stiring every so often?

    Thanks for the imput from all,

  16. That's fantastic! Both the salt and the Cornish hens!!! Nicely done! Cheers! - Leah

    I have the same question!  I don't see how a screen can take the place of stirring the salt.

    He is smoking kosher salt which is like a small grain rock salt. Using the screen allows the smoke to hit the salt from every angle. When you use a pan the smoke is only getting to the top layer.therefore you have to stir.
