up in smoke

As you have probably noticed I've been all smoke happy for awhile now.  Here is some lamb bacon using the scrap from the racks(also with some help of activa).  Thy sat for two weeks will a dry cure of sugar and salt etc.  The two front ones received a little spice of smoked hot paprika and cayenne.  Lamb bacon is easy and a great way to utilize your scraps.

While I had the smoker fired up I always try to throw something else there for fun.  Besides the beet cured arctic char I smoked, I threw in some dark chocolate pistoles to cold smoke.  They still melted, but I still call it a success.  The chocolate received a really subtle deliciously appropriate smokey flavor.  Maybe I'll make a smoked chocolate sorbet.
