How to smoke yogurt???
Does anyone know how to smoke yogurt? I just had some at a great little restaurant and would love to be able to make it myself! I can always revert to the old trial and error method but if anyone has any experience, advice or ideas - I would love to hear them!

1/4 c. tea leaves
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. raw rice
1/8 c. wood chips
and smokes it for 10 minutes. i would think to start off by smoking 8 ounces greek yoghurt for 8-10 minutes. let sit 5 min, remove lid and taste. you can keep smoking it if you add more sugar (assuming you still have some of the other ingredients viable). if the yoghurt 'melts' (i don't think it would), see if the smoke will still happen with lower than medium high heat.

I also bet the chef would be happy to share her/his technique. I have found that 3-4pm is often a better time to call dinner chefs for this kind of thing.
An Aside: I keep remembering an old Beverly Hillbillies episode where granny wants to Smoke Crawdads and wondering around the park with the Hippies.
Officer: What are you doing here at this hour?
Granny: I'm trying to smoke some crawdad, but first I need to find a little pot.
Officer: Okay come with me.
