Pretty much sums it up in a nutshell. 8) It's not for everyone, but those of us that drink it, love it. So I understand why some people dislike it, but I'm kinda crazy for it myself. :lol:

A lapsang souchong can be a beautiful tea if you find the right kind. It surely should have that smoky taste. And a good on comes at a price like Yin Jun Mei Lapsang Souchong. May be my most favored black tea. Now if you want a real strong BBQ flavor try Wei Shan Mao Jian a yellow tea, delicate in its own way.

Sounds delicious. A quick google search returns recipes for chicken or other meat with mushrooms, bell peppers, and many other tasty ingredients. Though I couldn't imagine that simply grilling the meat over a wood fire would taste much different.

I haven´t tried using lapsang souchong to cook with...I often cook with a wood fire though :)

Also I´ve marinated chicken in brewed green tea(just inexpensive gunpowder green) , herbs and oil, grilled it over the wood fire and brushed with honey...that was delicious :)
