    Why do you want to try smoked foie gras?

    I just want to try it. Same reason I felt like BBQ Oysters would be worth a taste. Hopefully the outcome is better.

    BBQ oysters have barbecue sauce on them. Smoked oysters are good, though.

    I'll try smoked next time I'm at the coast.

    But seriously, you aren't even a little bit curious what foie gras tastes like smoked? It's basically the only way you can't taste it. And maybe there's a reason for that, maybe it's absolutely fucking terrible, and that's why nobody does it. But I'm still interested in trying.

    Seems to me that the texture would be weird. Kind of melty with a tough, but not crisp, exterior. I'm not a big lover of smoked foods anyway, so maybe I don't get it.

    Well I'm talking a quick smoking... 15-30 minutes. More like smoked duck breast than BBQ. I imagine that it would get a little melty, just b/c of the temp, but that the fat would pick up a ton of flavor and be pretty interesting to eat. Eat it with something acidic to cut the smoke and fat and I think it could be great.

    You don't. I imagine you could have greater personal failings. I just don't know what they would be, however.

    don't get me wrong, i love some things with smoke, but they tend to be lean. smoked chicken on the rotisserie? pork ribs? tri-tip with a good sear and a little smoke? sure. but sometimes it seems there's a certain chili cookoff mentality that dictates that ANYTHING can be improved by smoke.

    I feel like fine dining has taken the same approach with pickling. I'm pretty sick of fucking well everything being pickled.

    I can also predict, should I ever get this erstwhile gift, that I shan't ever use the kitchen again for cooking. Or at least, much less than I normally would. I'm going to smoke anything I can. May even give pizza a shot.
