Questions & Answers

Food should not have tobacco flavor.
You can purchase a total of 4 types of wood chips separately in addition to the samples of applewood and hickory that come with the package.
The way to smoke ice cubes is to smoke them until they melt, then refreeze them. The area of the ice cubes is larger so they can absorb more smoke, and they are also cooler, which further enhances their absorption.
The flavors are enhanced before and after cooking. Smoked whiskey is an excellent example of this.

Selected User Reviews For Breville Smoking Gun Food Smoker

This is a high quality product and it Numerous products like this are available on Amazon for as little as I chose the Breville brand at a reasonable cost ($69 at the time I purchased it) from a range of 95 to $300 (5/5)

This thing (for me) would be used for entertaining, and would be in view of guests, so I did not want a cheap, easily damaged thing. Breville products are excellent and their customer service is the best in my experience. I had some trouble with one of their products and when I called to request some assistance, the phone rang twice and a person answered who I could understand answered the phone and helped me without having to speak to another individual. These days it's amazing how far the technology has come.

Now for the smoker himself It seems to work very bit surprised that the smoker does not have a heating element, so you have to ignite the shavings with a lighter or match under those conditions, but it was easy. The act of lighting a pipe would be similar (if you are familiar with that). Hold the match to the bowl, and the shavings will ignite instantly. Put shavings in the bowl, turn on the blower and hold the switch until the shavings light up. Having considered it for a while, I believe the method I suggest here is superior (compared to my incorrect assumption, since it follows the KISS theory and works well). It is likely that I will buy a cheap lighter and keep it in the smoker's box. Here is what you need to know about Making smoked cocktails with it was my favorite use of it. A second incorrect assumption was that I would insert the tube in the cocktail and the smoke would bubble through it. You're not supposed to do this, according to the manual. The manual instructs that all of the ingredients of the mixed drink should be put in a shaker. Next, I added the smoke and shook it. To ensure that as much smoke as possible was absorbed, I shook it a little longer than usual. This presentation was enhanced with the use of a glass shaker. In my attempt to recreate a local restaurant's smoked cocktail exactly, I had to make sacrifices (oh, what sacrifices we make). Despite the fact that the drink did not taste as it did last night, smoke can still be detected in the aroma and taste. As for the smoke quality, I did not expect it to be so "clean", but it was nothing short of amazing There are no particulates and it is white. A surprising aspect of its existence was also how long it lasted. There is still smoke in the shaker 15 minutes after it was shaken. There were two things I expected to happen either the smoke would be consumed by the shaking, or it would cool and settle within a In terms of quantity of smoke, we can write The biggest surprise was the wood chips. Similar to a previous reviewer, I bought extra chips to make six pieces but only made two After making 8 cocktails, the sample sticks of wood that came with it barely scratched the surface. A new version is released quickly as well. The smoke was coming out of nowhere, but I had expected it to be slowly building as the wood ignited and to build up over time (clearly I had no idea what to expect). Hence, it's important that you are When I saw the first one, I was surprised and had to get it into the shaker without delay. The following is for your reference In order to be near the range hood where the exhaust fan was already on, I carried out the operation next to it. The smoke in the kitchen is not appealing, but it is not my fault that the alarm didn't go off the first time. Although smoke appears a little heavier than air, or at least buoyancy neutral, it does seem slightly heavier than air. As you can see in the picture, I used a shaker that had a round shape. As the shaker has screw-on parts, I thought that this was a great thing to do The cap has come off. By removing the cap, holding the tip of the hose up to the opening, and then cracking the seal on top, I was able to let air out. I sealed the top of the shaker as soon as smoke started coming out of the shaker seal, and when the smoker started to flow I stopped it. In this case, I was lucky to have such an ideal shaker that I happened to have. It is a top notch piece of work used it just once that evening, but I got six hours out of it There are 8 shakers (12-oz. There were 16 drinks), and I was very pleased with that. The intent was to mix it with cocktails, but I am excited about trying it with food, too. Adding smoked cheese to the list of recipes appeals to me, as well as making baby food The ribs behind my back are what I will be testing it on.

This is a great idea! I'm amazed at how great this thing is! It was more of a fun frivolity for me to purchase it since I was doubtful about how much flavor it could impart (5/5)

It was pleasantly surprising how well cheddar infused after smoking with hickory chips! After experimenting with salmon and peppercorns, I've gone on to smoke eggs, lentils, nuts, soups, salsa, spices, steak, sausage, bacon, tea, and various types of cheese. Your imagination is the only limit to what you can do! A note about bacon that has been rubbed with pepper and brown sugar, baked, and then smoked with hickory or mesquite. It is quite delicious and (warning) rather.

This is a real smoke! You might think this thing is cool and useful, but it's really the opposite (5/5)

The Bradley smoker, an appliance with a smoker box, and a smoker tube are all things that I like, but if I want to add a bit of smoke flavor to my food without having to use a grill or major appliance, this is the best option. I like this device because it is easy to use, it has a high cool factor, and even using it in the house doesn't make my house smell like you just toasted marshmallows in the oven You might want to consider getting one of these if you're able to spend the money on something that works nicely when it comes to adding some smoke flavor (and if you're not a fan of liquid smoke).

It is not surprising to me how cool this little smoking gun is, as it was the topic of my research (5/5)

Since I did my research, I am not surprised at the awesome features of this little smoking gun! It freaked me out because the little bag of wood that came with it didn't seem enough, and I bought a much larger bag to go It's only been 10 minutes so far, and the bag hasn't been touched! I just can't seem to stop keeping an eye on that jar. The majority of the meat we eat and some of the vegetables we consume have been smoked before they are cooked. I would be distraught if this broke, and I would order another one from here right away!.

There is a lack of consistency (2/5)

I have needed to replace or adjust the batteries five times in as many attempts to use my smoking gun. It almost makes me ache to use it.

Angelina Williams - 22/06/2021
The best thing I've ever done (5/5)

This smoker is my favorite. I love it so much. Having gotten it several months ago, I have not stopped using It's my go-to tool for smoking anything. A bagel with cream cheese, sausage, and cheese is shown in the picture. Even desserts and drinks have been done by me.

Hugo Higgins - 13/04/2021
MAKE SURE YOU ARE WARNED! Two smoking guns have been purchased by me in the past two Several uses are all they can handle before they short out (1/5)

Whenever it works, it is great however, now I have two machines that do not function. There is a possibility that it overheats. If you want to contact me, feel free to email me at personalchefcalvin@gmail. com. The web site.

Today, it is not ready for prime time (2/5)

The idea is great, and one day it may mature into a good product. For now, however, it is still not ready for prime time. I have an acrid smell and taste to the smoke that comes out of my mouth. In comparison to my large Trager smoker, this one is quite different. Breville told me that I was the only person (and part of the first batch of people) to mention this to them. The first thing I thought was that it was probably just that I hadn't washed off some kind of plastic coating, so after washing the burn chamber well, I even tried a second time with another I have the same problem. There is also a hose problem that needs to be resolved. There are both good and bad sides to this fabric, one is that it kinks very easily, while the other is that it is very soft. Once more, I appear to be the only one talking about it. The questions of durability, simplicity of use, and giftability are I am not sure about durability, but it does not seem like an industrial model (as most Breville equipment does) Because it's not what I want, I wouldn't give it to someone I like and even though it seems averagely easy to use, since the end product is not what I want, Due to the fact that I bought the item from Amazon, I am I was told up front that Breville would only exchange my card if I wanted to go that route. Thus, Amazon gets a big thumbs up!.
