Nordic Ware Indoor/Outdoor Smoker

We've been missing smoked ribs and chickens.Because of the drought I didn't once bring out our smoker this past summer. It's been mostly cooking for 2 now these days.

I can't wait to get this for Christmas.Nothing's better than picking out your own gifts.

I liked it because it reminded me of how much my husband loved our smoker.Now that were getting older it's time to simplify things.
Found this goodie on Amazon last night.I also placed an order for an additional 8 pints of smoking chips.

HO-HO-HO! Let's have some fun.
My husband was commenting on different things he'd like to smoke.
I hope Salmon is on his list.Maybe I should have bought 2.Have a feeling he's going to enjoy this far more than I will.Especially after I showed him some videos of it.

That almost looks like a stove top Weber kettle. I'd get one just for the cool factor. I'm sure it cooks well too.... :)

He liked the cool factor of it to.
Weber grill came to mind when I saw it.The weber always did a great job smoking meats.

It's going to be interesting to see how well it cooks.
I like it even more knowing that my days of standing out in the cold smoking a Tri-Tip or ribs are over.

That does look way cool, Munky! I might have to look into one of those. I had a smoker about 12 years ago or so, and ended up giving it away. I soon wished I hadn't, but with caring for my mom full time I just didn't have the time or inclination to use it.

Salmon would definitely be close to the top on my list, and smoked cheese is amazing, too! Thanks for the link, and let us know how you love it!

Munky, I'm curious what the drought has to do with smoking.

Does this stove top smoker hot smoke, or can it cold smoke too?

It has to do with dry grass. Were only allowed to water the lawns on certain days.Limited times. With the dry grass, a charcoal hot smoker next to it wouldn't have been a bright idea. Not in this windy area.

From what I've seen of the video it's a hot smoke.Can't say if it's a cold one.
I'm not familiar with that kind of technique to give you an honest answer.
Maybe someone who is can answer that.

I'll let you guys know how it works out. If I'm lucky maybe he will let me have it early. So far he's NOT budging. Would a SHOVE work?

I can see why you didn't. It is work. Hopefully the person who you gave it to is enjoying it. We gave our first one away to. Newborn and moving.No time for smokin'. Daaaaaang!!

The guy we gave it to was over the moon to get it.
So it's all worked out.

Hi. We spent 3 years with no moisture whatsoever.
No car washing. Burn bans. (No fires of any sort.) At its worst we could water 2 hours one day a week. Just enough to keep the trees alive.
The only upside was it gave the city time to really clean out the drainage system.
Chef Munky,
You have my utter and complete sympathy.
