When I was beekeeping we used alfalfa pellets in our bee smokers. Could these be used for smoking meat? Does anyone here dare try it?

Alfalfa is not poisonous. If the Smoke smelled good, it's worth a shot. I have 20 Chickens but no Rabbits, so the testing I'll leave to you...JJ

Alfalfa might sound uncommon, but remember.... folks used corn cobs for smoking hams and bacon. Chicken thighs or drumsticks is probably the best meat to try this on.... it's inexpensive and takes smoke easily.

EDIT - I posted below, but you might try cheese too.

Wouldn't that be something if the best ribs were alfalfa smoked. I would try it but only 100% organic alfalfa. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
