You might be saying to yourself: It’s the perfect warm day for a nice brunch, how about some espresso, some cubed cheese, a yogurt parfait, and a baguette on this lovely Tuscan veranda… well, anything is possible. If you find yourself in the mood for a creative way to enjoy the herb aperitif with your coffee, why not try smoking out of a bread baguette pipe?
Step 1: Coring it out
This is a matter of finding a tool, like chopsticks or a spoon handle, that is longer than your loaf of bread. Start out with a thinner tool, then continue coring with thicker diameters until you have a good path for the smoke. You want to do this gradually, otherwise, you can ruin the structure of the bread.
Step 2: Bowl hole
With scissors or a knife, the next step is to cut out the intake hole. Because of the stiffness of the crust, a sharp object is necessary.
Step 3: Poke in that joint
Just push your joint firmly into the hole, or your bowl stem if that is what you are using. With a joint, you will want a smooth hole through the loaf, with no sharp edges. Because burning the bread is a bad idea, and the porous loaf won’t hold herb well, don’t try it without a method for holding the bud above the loaf.
Step 4: Blocking the end
If you don’t want a steamroller style hit, simply wad up some of the bread from the inside that came out when you were coring it, make a plug, and cap the open end of the bread.
Step 5: Smoke and enjoy
Just like any other hitter, light it up and enjoy! For the best draw, cover the open end of the bread with a palm, to prevent suction loss. When you are done, maybe enjoy that smoked bread baguette pipe with some smoked salmon pate or a smoked cheese spread! I’m sure the flavor combination will satisfy even the most urbane munchies.
