If you're looking for fun and creative ways to use your pellet smoker, this is a really cool one. We saw this over on TastingTable's website and had to give it a try ourselves. The Italian delicacy bottarga, is made of salted, cured fish roe, most often of the grey mullet which is found along coastlines. Of course, here in the middle of America, there is no egg more accessible than the chicken egg, so the choice to cure the yolk for the same effect makes total sense to us. The process is lengthy, though uncomplicated. It's a really fun little experiment that yields a new smoky, salty condiment to top your pasta, salads or breakfast dishes.
