Smoked Crackers FAQ

What’s the best way to store these crackers?

So, the BEST way to store these would be to vacuum seal them. That’ll keep them freshest the longest. If you aren’t psycho like me, a sealable storage baggie with as much of the air removed as possible will work just fine for short-term storage. I’d work on eating these within a week though, much like any other opened bag of crackers.

What are some other uses for these crackers?

Want to imbibe some more delicious smoke flavor into other things? Here are some fun uses for these smoked crackers. One of my favorites is to crush them up and use them in place of bread crumbs in things like:

Can you use other types of crackers?

Yup! You can really use whatever type of crackers you’d like with this recipe. Experiment and get creative!

I wonder if tortilla chips would work....I was going to make the jalapeño popper smoked cream cheese and was going to serve with tortilla chips.
