I have acquired some authentic Scottish peat, discovered some Scottish roots and given my undying love for Laphroaig and Lagavulin, there is a higher calling here to smoke with peat.  I am asking if anyone has any experience smoking with peat.  What I have are basically charcoal brickettes of varying sizes.  I would like to know if anyone has smoked anything with peat and how it turned out.

 

I've just made about 10 pounds of homemade veal sausage and intend to experiment smoking it with peat, but I don't want to limit it here.  How are peat-smoked ribs?  Peat-smoked pulled-pork?  Anyone have experience?

 

Thanks in advance!

The only consistent result of my quick research effort on using peat for smoke on something consumable (as opposed to domestic heating) is a reference to Scotch distilleries using peat to roast barley and malt. There are a few mentions on other BBQ forums, but lots of cautions and limitations on use and conditions. It would seem a stretch to use it, but that's what experiments are for. If you do, please report back!
