    My girlfriend got me a couple ounces of Smoked Peppercorns for Christmas last year and since then I grind them into everything I cook.  The problem is that i am starting to run out and the store that she bought them from has gone out of business.  I'm new to smoking and was wondering is anyone had any ideas how I could do this on my own.

    Just cold smoke them as you would anything else.  When I do peppercorns I put in some unsalted, raw almonds in the same pan.  The almonds will not only pick up the smoke but also the pepper flavor and will be to die for!

    Is it possible to cold smoke with a Brinkmann ECB?

    Absolutely, you can use you ECB!

    That might be a little overkill for a plate of peppercorns, but it should work

    OR, since you're gonna cold smoke them, use a smaller cardboard box cold smoker

    Here's an post on using a cardboard box cold smoker:

    You'll need to make a cheap smoke generator.  You can use a soup can, soldering iron and some chips.

    Looks like a fun project!
