Default Smoking Salt or Sugar

Anybody ever tried smoking salt or sugar? Just curious how you did it or what you used it for?

I smoked salt a bunch of times. I use dry wood and lump coal. But be mindful of moisture. Use chunks instead of logs as the chunk with create a less moisture in the unit. I wrap the salt in cheese cloth and hang it in the unit. I have cooked while doing it as well. I used course sea salt and would grind it in a mill when necessary.

As for sugar I can't see the reason. I would love to hear what application you would use it with though. As well i am sure that the same method will work.

To part or not to part: that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to part and suffer the slings and arrows of ostentatious brothers or to not part when faced with a sea of dissent, and by compromise end it? To part: to succeed. Forever more: and by succeed to say we win.

Yeah it looks good...but how does it smell?

i smoke salts for my rubs. really adds a better flavor imo since i cook H&F and usually dont get too much smoke on my meats. i just take kosher salt and spread it out on a sheet pan and smoke it for about 3-4 hrs with nice thin smoke. salt will be light brown when done
