  • 3 twigs oregano fresh

Let’s start with the grilled lemon-pepper

  • Slice a lemon thin, this helps reduce the drying time.
  • Take the cap of 3 red peppers and deseed them. Grilling the lemons and pepper to give them a caramel flavor and a little BBQ char
  • Place them on a wired rack and put them in a food dryer for 24 hours.
  • When the lemon and the pepper are dry grind them down.
  • Take salt out of the salt grinder, replace half of the salt with the grilled lemon and pepper. Place it back in the jar and label it.

Now let’s do a smoked version of BBQ flavors

  • Slice one bell pepper, half an onion, 2 cloves of garlic and grill them until they have a little char.
  • Place them in the food dryer for 24 hours and grind them down.
  • Take the salt out of the salt grinder and put it on a plate. Smoke it with some beech tree for 3 hours. You can play around with other wood for different smoke flavors.
  • Mix the salt with the dried paprika, garlic, and onion. Add some ground down peppercorns and put everything in the salt grinder.

Now for the Italian roast

  • Slice and grill a lime and a garlic clove.
  • Dry the lime, the garlic, the twigs of fresh oregano, and thyme.
  • Remove the herb leaves from the stalks and grind them down.
  • Mix them with the smoked salt and some ground down peppercorns.
