Smoked Ice Cubes
- At least 1 hour before grilling, soak wood chips in enough water to cover. Drain before using.
- Place ice cubes in a 9x5-inch disposable foil pan. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat in center of grill. Sprinkle wood chips over coals. Place pan on grill rack over center of grill. Cover and grill for 30 minutes. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Add wood chips according to the manufacturer's directions. Grill as above.)
- Remove pan from grill; cool. Pour water into ice cube trays. Freeze for at least 8 hours or until firm.
From the Test Kitchen
Pick the "flavor" of wood you desire--oak, hickory, apple, maple, or pecan. Or the next time you are smoking on the grill, add a pan of ice and freeze for later use.
