smoked coconut

Planning on brewing a coconut porter, but I want to smoke the coconut.  Anybody ever try this?  If so, how was it and what was your technique?

Brewed many a coconut porters, but only toasted the coconut.  Never smoked it.  May be easier to brew a smoked porter and then add the coconut after fermentation is complete? 

But, what the heck.  It's homebrewing.  Give it a shot. Probably cold smoke or smoke at a low temp until golden brown and pull.  I usually let it sit for a day or two in a paper bag before adding to the beer.

Thanks hoser. I agree, I'll give it a shot!  Will post with results in about a month. Cheers!
