Smoking with sugar cane

Post by nuynai » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:14

Just was watching a episode on Project Smoke, where the host was using sugar cane to smoke things. Was just wondered if anyone here ever had any experience in using it. He said it added a mild, sweet flavor.

Interesting. I know that "Burnt Sugar" is used as a flavoring, but its caramelized and not actually burnt. If it becomes burnt it is too bitter to use, and there is a fine line.....

Just to clarify, he uses it on BBQ but at 11 mins. in the show, he puts the sugar cane onto the charcoal to smoke. Here's the episode.
