7. After the allotted hour, stir once more. Now it’s time for a taste test! If you’re happy with the level of smoky flavour, remove from the smoker. If you feel it would benefit from a little more smoky flavour, keep your dish in the smoke, but taste test every 20 minutes or so until you are happy with the flavour.

If there are any particles present in the liquid, strain through a clean tea towel or sieve and return to the bottle for 24 hours to mellow. You may notice that the liquor has changed in colour to a degree, this is completely normal!
