Picked a couple of stalks of sugarcane this weekend while dove hunting. How do you smoke with them? Dou you peel them down to the flesh? Thanks in advance.


  • Are you talking about making sugarcane skewers?
  • No, I thought I had read before that he uses it for smoking. Maybe the sun has gotten to me. :laugh:
  • I will defer to Frank on that one. I would think it will burn the sugars and not turn out well as smoke, but I am all ears also.
  • good deal. thanks. looks like he leaves to outside on. i'm going to give it a shot tonight.
  • Frank brought some by the Chicken Coop last time through and I've only used it once. He reminded me that it produces a very dark skin on chicken so I used only a couple of pieces with mine.

    It seemed to have imparted a slightly sweet flavor but I may be wrong. I took it off before the meat got dark.

    It freezes well in Zip-Lock bags. I think I'll try it on some shrimp next time.

  • I talkedd to several people around here and they told me I was crazy. I had put the idea on the back burner until you brought it up. I was thinkin chicken ;)
  • I've only use it on fowl so far. The idea isn't original - local food guy on the radio (who is an egger) says he uses it on his turkeys. I peel the loose leaves, cut into 6 to 8" lengths and then split. I would only use 6-8 pieces for a whole chicken. After the first one that turned the skin black, I cut back to the 6-8 pieces. Even thought the skin was black, it was mightyfine. Freeze whatever you don't use - it will rot like anything else if you don't freeze it. Couple pics.
