If you are going to hop-smoke your grains, i would soak them as has been mentioned, and then put them in an aluminum foil pouch and poak small holes/slits in the pouch. Place this pouch near or on your fire (charcoal or gas will work) so that it smokes. This should keep your hops from burning up too fast. My girlfriend mentioned that you could also add some soaked hardwood chips to the pouch.

I like the idea in the other thread about smoking the hops with a hardwood flavor.

Maritime Pacific in Seattle has hop-smoked onion rings that are amazing. Let us know how you smoke them and how it turns out, I've been interested in using hops for smoke. Unfortunately searching for smoking hops gives only drug references...

Would you smoke whole grains or milled? If you're being use it right after you smoke it I could see how milled grains would absorb even more of the hops flavor. What about mashing smoked grains with "hop" water?

Can't you guys just brew some $&@&$ing beer like normal humans?

Here's an idea that will blow your mind. Drink bourbon all day, then piss on some raw barley to start germination. When it's time to halt the progress, kiln it with a spent grain fueled brick oven. Mash in with 100% bong water. Profit!

I think my final plan is to hop smoke some milled grain, then to grain smoke some hops.. The test run will be for a 1 gal batch..
I'll be trying this all weekend.
I'll most likely take pictures and document the whole thing then post it in the recipes section...
First step is to build a small smooker..
Any place I can go to find some plans on how to build this device?
It seems like the kind chefs use to smoke with tea leaves is my best bet. I want something I can use often, and will most likely need to try several times before I am successful.
