Re: My Idea
if you really want to use dry ice i wouldn't mix it with the water......id pack it around the base, but lets look at a few key things here...
1. Ice and Water coexist at 0 degrees C, so you can make an ICE/WATER mixture that is 0 degrees
2. Dry ice is MUCH colder than that...at some point the water WILL start to freeze, even with the surface disruption with smoking, the water around the edges will freeze and encroach (at which point you run into a lot of problems)
3. supercooling smoke decreases the flavor presumably because the molecules are moving slower so less make contact with your taste buds....this is the same reason clouds appear bigger when they are cooler...they are moving slower
4. ... i feel like i had another point but i cant remember at the time being.
