It's likely you still haven't wrapped your head around the idea of smoked ice, but it's pretty simple to make—and well worth the effort.

The easiest way is with a grill or smoker, if you have one.

Follow these steps:

Step #1

Add wood chips as if you were going to smoke a piece of meat—but instead put in a bowl of ice cubes.

Step #2

Cold objects attract smoke, so the cubes will act as magnets and pull in the smoke flavoring.

Step #3

The ice will melt. That’s OK. Pour the water back into an ice cube tray and refreeze. Voilà...smoked ice!
