Stove-Top Smoker

Okay, before you die-hards run me out of Dodge, I got a stove top smoker on grocery store points (half regular points too) that looks very similar to this one.

I have been making my own sausage patties and links for awhile with my KA and I want to smoke them but can't find any guidelines in my booklet or online.

Would it be similar to an outdoor smoker (with shorter times) or should I only use it for salmon, etc. which turned out awesome!

I am just stopping in. I am juggling a lot right now with my sister's and my health and other things but hopefully I will be able to drop by once in awhile.

I have a Cameron stovetop smoker, it should work very nicely for smoking anything you want, LP! Kayelle and Katie each also have one. We have a stovetop smoker thread or two somewhere around here. Maybe give it a shot with a patty or link and see if you like it.

Thanks, Dawg! I will look for that thread sometime. I forgot the picture of mine.

Now I just have to find a new source of pork fat as my butcher can't carry it anymore - Pork fat contains bacteria and they can only give away trimmings and don't have much of that anymore either. There is supposed to be a smoker supply store near my in-laws so next time we go I can check and make my sausage. I have my pork shoulder in the freezer and can't wait to get going on it.

That's a lovely looking thing Laurie! What brand is it? After reading all the posts on stove top smokers I may look into trying one. Yours looks nice.

Thanks, Addie, for the link!

Jabbur, It is a Nordic Ware Stovetop Kettle Smoker & Wood Roaster.

I am really glad to hear there are others who have stovetop smokers and like them. I had really never heard of them until I saw this in my points catalogue a year ago. And when it ended up in the clearance catalogue this year I figured it may not be a popular item.

I talked to my friend's husband who built his own outdoor smoker and he (who never laughs at people) cracked up and said he wished me luck. Once I get good at it I will have to have them over and make him eat his words, literally!

Laurie, I just did a search for that and it appears they have come out with a new model - same basic design but the thermometer is separate and the inside is shiny sliver (aluminum?) not black (teflon?). They have both models at Amazon so maybe they had it on clearance to make room for the newer model. I put it on my wish list. Can't order anything online for a while. Our credit card was set to expire and the new ones haven't arrived. I called and they were issued last month. They cancelled the account and are issuing new ones so I'll have to wait until they get here. I was always jealous of those folks smoking something. It sounded so good. There was a recipe with bacon wrapped meatballs that were smoked. I tried them on the gas grill following smoking guidelines for grills but they still came out very charred. I'd like to try them again when I get this.

Jabbur, I saw the model you mentioned when I was looking for a picture of mine. In my case I got it from a points catalogue and they buy certain items for each season and if they don't sell they clear out what product is left to make room for the next season. I looked in the new Spring/Summer book and they aren't showing it any more (either style) so I guess it was not popular for points - it was originally on for 70,000 points and I got it for 35,000.

I would prefer the non teflon, but since I paid nothing (except for $100's for groceries ) I am happy with what I got. Let me know what you think of it when you get it.

My MIL bless her heart found me some pork fat from the store I mentioned so I will pick it up in a few days. She froze it for me. I will be smoking sausage before you know it!

Amazon had really good price on theirs - around $75. Going to the manufacturer's website it was $130! Amazon will get my business.

What a pretty smoker, Laurie! Even better that you got it free!

The Cambridge is not as pretty, doesn't have a thermometer, it's the size of a large lasagna/cake pan, and you can use it on the grill as well as indoors and in the oven. Some of the recipes from its cookbooklet might well work for yours. I'm excited to hear how your recipes turn out!
