    Set up a pot with the woodchips on the bottom, place a wire rack on top, put the cream in a heat proof bowl and place on the rack, cover the whole thing in foil and put on a low heat to smoke takes about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and leave to stand for 20 minutes. You should have a smoke flavored cream that is quite powerful in flavor.
