Now I am thinking that if a person just laced some tender quick in the fire box or even wet a slab of lump or wood with with some TQ slathered on it and let dry, if that would help promote a smoke ring, same as the few lumps of charcoal Thrideye adds. Sounds like a good experiment senerio.
I don't think it will work that way. There is such a low concentration of nitrates in TQ. The salt is the carrier. The percentages are 0.5% nitrate and 0.5% nitrite.
The nitrates are way less in TQ than in your standard pink salts (which is why it's marketed for home use). Pink salts contain 6.25% nitrates in a salt carrier.
