Hardwood Cherry

Homemade pickles have never been easier or smokier. Blast these Persian cukes with our signature hardwood flavor, then give them a briny bath for 24 hours before serving.


1 lb Persian Cucumbers

1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup sugar

6 cloves garlic

4 bay leaves

4 tbsp black peppercorns

2 tbsp white peppercorns

4 tbsp fennel seeds

1 tbsp whole coriander

1 tbsp red pepper flakes

1 bunch dill

2 cups white wine vinegar

2 cups ice water


When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.

Place the whole, washed cucumbers directly on the grill grate and smoke for 30-45 minutes. Remove from grill and cut into desired shape (coins or spears). Set aside until the brine is ready.

In a medium sized saucepan, bring all remaining ingredients, except dill and ice water, to a boil over medium high heat. Simmer for 5-10 minutes then remove from heat and steep 20 minutes more. Pour brine over ice water to cool.

Once brine has cooled, pour over the cucumbers and weigh the cucumbers down with a few plates to ensure they are completely submerged. Let sit 24 hours before use. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
