    On a bet I'm smoking some vanilla ice cream this morning. I'm really not sure if it will take on any smoke or not, but I know I'll win the bet. [​IMG]

    I built a new cardboard smoker with a side fire box and 4" tube to the smoke chamber. The brown char-broil box is just a stand to hold the smoke chamber above the fire box. the tube is feed thru it to the smoker

    Built a fire with 2 briquet's and some maple sticks;

    with some trial and error I got it running nice and cold, but then again it's only 10° outside. The warmest the smoke chamber got to so far is 25°;

    Here's the ice cream sitting on a cold piece of steel wrapped in Aluminum foil;

    Nothing to do now but watch and wait. It's been almost an hour now and will probably go one more.

    The TBS;

    Thanks for checking it out, I'll let ya know later how it turns out.

    Hey, [​IMG]for even trying this! Hope it takes some flavor. Don't think it's my cup of tea, but let me know how it tastes.

    Hard to pick one reason for giving you points. There's too many! [​IMG] Between smoking in the bitter cold, smoking ice cream and the smoker build they all justify points IMO.

    Yup, hes finally done it folks, he went over the deep end, into a dark deep smoking abyss LOL. This is what happens when you use insta cure instead of sugar in your morning coffee[​IMG].

    Dan, I'd give ya points for thinking outside the box on this one, but you used a box, so I can't.

    How about points for the most unique smoke I've seen since I've been on here[​IMG]Lets see them Southern boys do this in their 50 degree winter weather LOL.

    p.s. I am going to try this without the family knowing and see what they think when they try it.

    That is by far the strangest thing I have seen in a smoker. I think you been standing out in the cold a little too long. Points for trying. How did it taste?????

    OK, sorry for the delay, got caught up in an Ice fishing derby and a Syracuse game.
    It did take the smoke flavor but not a lot of color. When it was in the smoker and a little soft it was a weird combination with the cold vanilla and maple smoke but pretty tasty. after placing in the freezer for a couple hours to freeze back up it seems a little harsher in flavor. I'm hoping it's like cheese and might mellow out with some time in the cooler.
    Would I do it again ? probably not. But I'll have to see if it mellows out and if so with a little homemade maple syrup it just might be heaven.
    Thanks everyone for the points and comments, I like experimenting with stuff and this one was worth a couple free beers, which made it all worth while.
