I'm thinking of trying to infuse a mesquite smoke flavor into a basic mead. There are a couple different ways I was thinking of doing this:
1. Throw some mesquite chips on the smoker and actually smoke them like a piece of meat. Then add them to the carboy for a month.
2. Get the smoker running and try and route the smoke from the stack and into the carboy. This would be more like a mad science project in the back yard. This would consist of a dryer vent hose, lots of duct tape and some rubber tubing.
Let me know what you think, any concerns or ideas would help.
