How to Make Smoked Ice (Yes, It's a Thing)

How to Make Smoked Ice (Yes, It's a Thing)

Yes, smoked ice cubes are a thing. Stay with us.

1)  First, freeze a football-sized chunk of ice in a Tupperware container.  Slide that frozen slab into a perforated, disposable aluminum grill pan and place that pan over a second, unspotted pan.

2)  Stick ’em both in your smoker, or use a shut grill with a foil pouch of smoking woodchips inside. (We chose hickory chips to make our Texas bourbon taste like a San Antonio barbecue pit.)

3)  Throw lawn darts for a couple of hours as the melting ice seeps into the non-perforated pan below.

4)  Finally, refreeze that infused water in an ice-cube tray.  

Boom: smoke-soaked blocks that make your whiskey or Bloody Mary richer, smoother, and the envy of your brunch crew.
