    Not-2-Sweet's Note:

    After running to three grocery stores looking for Hickory Smoke Salt and unable to find it, I decided to try and make my own. It worked out great! Considering the price of smoke salt, I'll never buy it again!

      I love this stuff! I make this regularly, every couple months, and I always make some with hickory liquid smoke, some with mesquite. Adds one heck of a punch to make your fajita seasonings and dry rubs go from great to outstanding. I am asked all the time what my 'secret' is. Thanks so much for posting! ETA: Through trial and error we've discovered that 1 c of sea salt to 1 tbs liquid smoke is a great ratio, but we don't dry it, just keep it in a covered container. Won't go bad, and the liquid smoke releases it's aromatic properties as it cooks/dries out.

      The perfect way to make your own, and it's a lot cheaper. The only thing I would recommend is using ONLY Wright's Liquid smoke. It is nothing but liquified smoke. No caramel coloring or anything else. You can get it in hickory or mesquite. The perfect thing for smoked roasted and salted pecans.
