Smoked Salt

I love smoky flavors and have never tried smoked salt so I really want to give it a shot. I found This on eBay. I wrote to the seller to ask what size and shape the crystals are, but have not heard back yet. I did a search online and found a ton of places that sell smoked salts, but most of them charge this much or more for just 3 ounces. Does this price seem too good to be true? What do you think?

I am probably going to get this anyway because even if it is a ripoff I am only out about $8 with the shipping costs.

Thanks Raine! Have you ordered from them before? If you have then I will use these guys if the ebay guy doesn't get back to me soon.

I wonder though...between the eBay salt and this site the color difference is huge. The eBay salt is very brown and this site is almost white. I am assuming the darker the color the smokier the flavor. Would this be a correct assumption?

GB-

I just now ordered this Smoked Salt before even finding this post!

It is alderwood smoked sea salt and it's reasonably priced. I'll make sure to give a review when it gets in.
