The first rule about Smokehouse Salt Society is you don’t talk about Smokehouse Salt Society.
So we will.
Here’s the rubdown on the local gourmet sprinkler just hitting retail shelves.
Top local chefs have been experimenting with secret stashes for some time now. Steve Ring (Taste) and chef Michael Condon (Badda Bing Catering) are the gentlemen behind the goods.
Cold hickory smoking the evaporated Sonoma sea salt makes for incredible flavor depth. The obvious pairing choices? Grilled meats, mashed spuds, and tomato and mozzarella salad. But the not-so-obvious ones (like, say, Granny Smith apples and caramel sauce) are worth a taste, too.
Die-hard BBQ enthusiasts will be licking their chops. Vegans might think they’ve gone to hide-free heaven. Rosemary and apple wood blends and smoked herb variations are rumored to be coming soon.
But you didn’t hear it from us.
