Funny. I have not one but two Cameron stovetop smokers. I didn't like them all that much for smoking meats and fish, but they make the very best lasagna pans. Great size and depth, and that lid just rocks it. Hope you're happy with it.

Yay Jabbur! Glad you got it!

I did pork tenderloin in mine last week with apple wood and marinated the tenderloin in a balsamic & rosemary vinaigrette. Very yummy!

Next is sausage, as soon as I can get my hands on some pork fat.

I have a turkey breast in the freezer that is coming out for the inaugural run of the smoker. I will get some other meats next run to the store. Of course it came while I was AT the grocery so will have to make do with the turkey breast.

I would love to have a stove top smoker. But I am concerned with it escaping and setting off the alarm. With 42 apartments of old folks, that isn't even funny.

Does any of the smoke escape?

No, Addie. There's no risk of setting off smoke detectors as far as I can tell. Our smoke detector in the kitchen area is only a few feet away from the stove/oven where the smoker is used and it has never gone off.

The only smoke that is visible is the initial tiny wisp that is the signal to fully close the lid, which begins the smoking process of whatever is inside.

Be careful. Smoking food is an addiction- I started with a unit about the size of a turkey cooking pot- I'm on my third smoker now-- went to gas then back to an outdoor electric unit.

Thank you Katie. The alarms here are very sensitive. Even a piece of dust in one of the dectectors can set the whole building off. And if they go off and it is a false alarm, the management company is fined $300 by the fire department. Stove top smoker when the cash becomes available is my next purchase. I just had to buy a 10" springform pan. I have a 7", but my g'son wants a big chocolate chip cheesecake this time.

I found this video on how to make a stovetop smoker with things we already have in the kitchen. Interesting. I wonder if it would work?

The "layering" technique is right on target except...

Part of the complete smoking process, in my experience, includes placing the (closed) smoker into an oven and baking/roasting as the final stage.

However, the video is a great starting point for those who wish to try stovetop smoking.
