Rhoobarb, I made THIS the other night. Hit the jackpot, IMHO.

What would happen if you smoked some malt with hops? What would a hops-smoked pale ale taste like? Like the marijuana brew? Like an old ashtray?

Or something wonderful?...
Worth a try!

Looks dee-vine! I've got a lot of homegrown Cascades. Maybe I'll try this with some of those! Thanks!

What got me was David's statement that he used spent hops. I figured spent hops would've given up most of their aroma/flavor compounds in the boil and wouldn't have much leftover. But I could be entirely wrong!

I haven't tried it with leaf hops yet, I used some older pellets I had. Don't know if there would be a difference. I was really impressed with that recipe. You could actually taste the smoked hops in the chicken.
