It arrived last night.Yeee-haaaaw!
My husband let me look at the box.Read everything about it,then still held fast to "Not Until Christmas" alright, I was fine with that.
Apparently he wasn't, just wanted to mess with me for a little while.
This Kettle Smoker is a Weber grill for the stove top.
I was really surprised by how large it really is. Nothing cheap went into the design. They thought of everything. I'm very impressed with it.
I made a quick phone call to where my son works asked him to bring home a Tri-Tip for dinner. I used the Hickory smoked chips that were provided.Did as they recommended. That had to be the best, juiciest Tri-Tip I've had in a long time. In a fraction of the time vs the outdoor smoker. This product is a definite winner. It was nice to be able to smoke something in the comfort of my own warm kitchen.
I can still smell the Hickory chips this morning.
Now for the nitty gritty aspects.
When I checked the specs on Amazon I didn't see that not only can this be used indoors/outdoors.It's also oven safe. It also came with a DVD.The video that you see on Amazon is the actual DVD demonstration.
Clean up of it is very easy.Warm soapy water is all you'll need.
We ate the evidence of the Tri-Tip. Didn't have the time to take a pic.
Tonight I'll be making Smoked chicken for us. Our guys want me to try making a pizza in it.
Your food will cook a little faster. Just keep an eye on the temp.
The recipe book has some really nice recipes with marinades and rubs 11 recipes in all.
It will not have the traditional smoke rings that people are used to seeing.
That won't matter with this. Your still going to get that smokey infused flavor.
They say to use an exhaust fan while it's in use. I did that.It wasn't even necessary. The kitchen or the house didn't fill up with smoke. Close the vent.
So, for those looking for something this year for the hard to buy for people. I highly recommend this unit. You or them won't be disappointed.
*Forgot to mention that it will hold up to 5# of food at a time. Non stick finish.
