A few years ago I heard about this small business out in California that sold smoked garlic. I want to say I heard it/saw it on The Food Network. They showed the owners processes for smoking garlic and even salt. I immediately went to their website and ordered smoked garlic and smoked salt. And I’m happy to report I’ve been a satisfied customer for a few years now. If you like smoky flavors then you’ll love their products.
My favorite way to use the smoked salt is on fresh corn on the cob. It really brings out the flavors of the corn with the smokiness. The smoked garlic has come in handy many ways. I’ve used it in crab cakes, in chicken dishes, mixed with butter, and most recently, as a steak rub. I took about 7-8 garlic cloves and diced them very fine and then rubbed them with some of the smoked salt and freshly ground pepper over a London Broil. I also topped it with some extra virgin olive oil. Then onto to the grill. It was fabulous, smoky, garlicky. You can see some of the carmelized garlic on top. Loved it.
