Saint Jamie Oliver has a home smoking instruction using a biscuit tin here: http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/fish-recipes/smoked-salmon-with-chilli-salsa

It's for fish (and on the Jamie Oliver forum people have tried other meats and fish), so don't know how it would work with garlic, but worth a try. Saint Jamie does recommend doing it outside or on the BBQ if you don't want to make your kitchen smoky. I was looking at it and thinking that if it's a nice day, try doing it in your garden with your camping gas stove.

Depending on how bored you are you could probably cook up a pretty efficient indoor smoker.

A flowerpot with two circles of chickenwire to hold the charcoal and garlic. Duck tape a funnel upside down to the top and put a line of plastic hose on top of that. Running that through to an aspirator should pull the smoke through and dissolve most of it.

Should be able to do that on your hob. As usual actually following my ideas is probably dangerous and I accept no responsibility for anything :wink:

I have found that the best way to smoke garlic is to crush or mince it and use a water bong. Smoking it with rolling papers makes for a harsher toke. :jack: :wink:

I have also found that garlic shoots are tasty to use like chives on a salad. growing garilic is rediculously easy. weait for a few of your cloves to sprout and the just stick 'em in the ground, shoot side up. even of the clove doesn't produce well, one can use the shoots on their salads. You do have to be patient though; the cloves take some time to prodice mature bulbs.

Whatever you do it will have to be outside. Do you have a grill?

Thread necromancy!

It's not smoked garlic but lobbing individual garlic cloves into a tray of roasting veg is brilliant. Chop/slice veg into bits, oven with oil on for an hour at about 220'C (taking out and very quickly stirring with a spatula every quarter hour), veg comes out tasting lovely. If your family is like mine they won't eat the garlic, save for another time. Or eat it like I do, either one, it's beautifully soft and sweet :love:

Hi to everybody!
Have to be the FSM in action.
My first day, and find this about.

Garlic? Paella? Necromancy? Vegans?

I have recently 'kickstarted' a man that makes a cooking program in youtube that I discovered by fb at a FSM Church post. At the 3:20 you could see the process for garlic as traditional at my country (clue: paella). But the entire video is full of good sh**t. I'm neither vegar nor necro... but I recommend to you, The Vegan Black Metal Chef makes PASTAGEDDON.
