Slathering on corn on the cob, dipping seafood, spooning over a pan seared steak, even just on toast or crackers, butter has a multitude of uses. To add an extra flare to anything from seafood to breads, smoked butter really fills the ticket. It combines quick with smoke, which is rare enough, but it can add hours of flavor to a dish.
