Mesquite smoke is a natural partner to spice-heavy BBQ rubs and sauces due to the strong, straightforward flavor. When used to smoke our all-natural sea salt for SaltWorks® El Dorado® Mesquite Smoked Sea Salt, the real mesquite wood imparts an intense, savory flavor that is great for the BBQ, but works wonders beyond. Hearty, robust and distinctive, mesquite wood smoke is an inseparable component of traditional Texas BBQ. Punch up the flavor of chicken wings or bacon burgers; sprinkle it on sausage and eggs in the morning; use it in a marinade for your favorite jerky recipe—El Dorado can do more than just season a brisket. Mexican, Tex Mex and Spanish tapas are just a few of the cuisines that you can take from “good” to “great” with a shake or two of this powerful gourmet salt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unique smoke flavor Let's face it - you can also buy "liquid smoke" and bring instant smoky flavor to your dish. But the Durango brings a very unique mesquite flavor - that's simply delicious. Also, for novice cooks working with smoked salts is easier than with the bottled liquids - where it's more difficult to get just the right balance of spices, base (tomato, stock etc) with liquids. Screw up with liquids and you're in trouble. I'm buying some for my nephews and nieces. But I must add, compared to the smoked salts found in stores - Durango packs a punch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product A friend of mine brought me some of this salt from farm market farms in brenham Texas. One taste and my son in law went crazy over it. I tried to order some more but the market was out. They were at least kind enough to give me the supplier. I not only ordered four bottles I also ordered the three fire blends, and the salt cellar. I plan to experiment more in the future. What a great find. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from El Dorado Mesquite - BEST Salt Available! We bought a jar on a visit to Woodinville about 10 months ago. We were about to run out so had to re-order and have shipped to us in Victoria, BC. The $10 jar ended up costing some $50 Cdn delivered, and we're still smiling....that's how much we like this product! Makes almost any dish taste it's BBQd even if it isn't. Try it, you'll love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR JERKY!!!! I bought this to use for my first time making venison jerky. I used a coffee grinder to grind 2 tbsp. of sea salt into a fine powder for my recipe (meat absorbs it better when ground finely). Result of jerky was amazing!! I also bought Hickory but haven't tried it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Smoke Addition You open up the jar and are overwhelmed by the smoky smell. Do not fear grasshopper the right amount of salt seems to provide the ideal amount of smoky flavor. Just an absolutely fantastic addition to a rich or mild dish.
