Soda Pop! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? Soda Pop!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Soda Pop and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!
Hickory Smoke Powder
Soda of your choice
InstructionsWe are trying two methods, a traditional cold smoke and adding hickory smoke powder directly to the soda. Pour the desired amount of soda into a foil pan and put in a smoker on the top shelf. Put your Flip Professional Smoke Box towards the bottom of your smoker and light it. Close the top vent and open the bottom ones and smoke for 5-10 minutes. For the second method use just a pinch of hickory smoke powder and mix into the soda before drinking.
So, Will it BBQ?
Some were better than others and we each had different favorites on the cold smoking but we both ended up thinking the one that we thought was going to be the worst was the best! I liked Mountain Dew best and Austin liked the Coke best. For adding hickory smoke powder both the Dr Pepper and the Cream Soda were good, not just not bad they were good! Especially the cream soda, the smoke powder added just a nice hint of smoke that really worked with the cream soda! So no, it will not BBQ if you try to apply actual smoke but if you use Hickory Smoke Powder it can turn out pretty good!

Hey y’all checking in from Greensboro, NC. I have been making kielbasa and summer sausage for about 24 years and smoking of course. Just built a curing chamber and am always looking for new things to make! Canning ,pickling, curing, smoking, you name it!
Thanks for all the help. I am very pleased with the products. I had a source I used for years that went out of business. Glad I have found you guys wish I had found you a long time ago.
@Tim-Salois Yes, brining and pickling are used in the same way even though they do not mean the same thing even though they have slightly different actual definitions.
@lamurscrappy thanks for all the help. I will let you know how the next batch turns out.
@scottwaltner i personally think we found your problem. After the ice bath you need to hang them at room temp for at least an hour. That helps to bloom the product and help set the casing as well. I think thats your issue.
