This may be a double post. A friend asked me to smoke some Tofu. My question is what is the best smoke (apple, hickory) and do you need to wrap like cheese to rest for 15 days.

Ralphhhhh. Sound of me retching.:emoji_laughing::emoji_laughing::emoji_laughing: Seriously, I would cold smoke, like cheese using hickory (or sagebrush) to give it some sort of taste.

Step 1. Get hickory smoke to add a strong flavor.

Step 2. Substitute your favorite meat for the tofu.

Seriously though never tried or even thought about smoking tofu but I imagine like Gecko said before you would probably want to cold smoke.

My sister is vegetarian, so sadly I have made smoked tofu several times. The stronger woods work better as tofu doesn't have a lot of flavor on its own (cherry, hickory etc), but I have done it with pecan as well. I tried with apple and she said it didn't have a lot of flavor.

I have never wrapped it, just smoke it for a couple hours and then she eats it. Not sure if it "should" be wrapped, but since I HOT smoke I didn't worry about it.

I personally have never eaten it so I can't say for sure how it came out can only take her word for it.

Thank for response for smoking Tofu, I did cold smoke the jello textured stuff. I used Pecan pellets in smoke sticks on parchment paper.
