Default Smoked Salt

Anyone here ever use or make smoked salt? Opinions? Uses? Worthwhile?

With zero experience I bought 3 6oz bottles yesterday at a local Farmers Market. What he had were flavored. I got a Bourbon Bacon, Ranch and Scorpion pepper.

Use it quite often. Substitute/supplement regular salt on some dishes.

Pasta water benefits from a good dose of the black nuggets

Bean dishes

Stews

Don't use it when it can't dissolve adequately.

Trial and error will guide you.

Less is more with smoked salt.

Made a whole batch of it some time ago and not worth the wood it takes to smoke it unless you are doing many pounds of it.
Lots of wood time smoke and work.
Another option would be to smoke it every time you smoke something else and keep doing it until you get it where you want it.
Saw a guy do it with liquid smoke and a spray bottle that may be an option too.
Best option is to get it in bulk at the store like I did, it came from from Mexico.

The guy that smoked these said he smokes it for 8 hours. He was covered up with interested people so I didn't get to ask him what type of wood or what type of salt he used.

I do what worth said, I smoke some with other things, like when I'm making chipotle or smoking some poblanos.

We had a cookout today with burgers, dogs and brats. I put a little of the Bourbon Bacon salt on the burgers and they turned out really good. I put about 6 crystals of the Scorpion salt in my mouth and to my taste it is really hot. I think I am going to only use it in chili and some soups. My tongue burned for about 30 minutes.

I thought the same thing when I posted the question. Prior to posting I did numerous searches and came up with LOTS of hits, but they were all replies to you and none of them included the word "smoked." Lots of hits on "salt".
