Bourbon Barrel Smoked Salt is a unique seasoning, a merging of the traditional smoking process with the distinct flavor of original barrel-aged bourbon. The resulting combination of salt flakes creates a flavor profile unlike any other. The subtle smokiness blends with the sweetness of the bourbon, perfect for adding a unique flare to your seafood and meats.
How is it Made?
A naturally smoked salt is made by burning wood in a "cold smoking" chamber so the smoke can circulate around the flakes and impart a unique, woody flavor into the salt. This is how our Bourbon Barrel Smoked Salt is made. The wood from bourbon barrels is burned in a cold smoking process that allows the smoke to circulate around the salt and gives the salt that distinctive flavor. Cold smoking occurs between 68°F and 86°F, a temperature range where the food won't lose moisture, but the wood can burn effectively.
These flat salt flakes stick to food more readily than a cubic grain of salt would, but it also lingers a little longer than a regular salt would, adding a bit of crunch to your bite. The flattened salt is cold smoked for roughly 8 to 12 hours. It is crunchy, salty, and smoky, making it the perfect addition to any spice cabinet.
Cooking with Bourbon Barrel Smoked Salt
Use this smooth and smoky Bourbon Barrel Smoked Salt just about everywhere you love smoky flavor. It's great on burritos, grilled chicken, corn on the cob, eggs, macaroni and cheese, salads, tacos, roasted and steamed vegetables, soups, gravies, spice rubs, and stews.
It's also an excellent salt to use as a rim salt for a Bloody Mary or a Dirty Martini. It's excellent on starchy vegetables, like the potato. The smoky flavor enhances the sensory attributes of other foods and spices, so it works well as a finishing salt. This is not the type of salt that you would use to salt your pasta water, but it is the type of salt that you would put on top of your finished pasta dish for that smokiness and the nice crunch.
