I loved how Breville includes a lot of great ideas for usage, primarily I saw this as a meat smoker but in reality, you can smoke cheese, drinks, vegetables, etc.
My uncle was my Father figure growing up and we both share a passion for food, I knew right away I wanted to test this out with him. When I gave him a call to ask him if he was interested he was so giddy, I swear I had just made his night.
In using the smoking gun, I wasn’t prepared for the instant smoke that was produced (see photo). I would definitely suggest standing at the stove with the fan on.
Our first attempt at using the Gun was to smoke some kabobs that we had just finished cooking. Load the chamber with a pinch of wood chips, turn the Gun on “high”, light the chips with a lighter, once the chips light switch to “low”. Once the chips are largely depleted, turn off the unit and seal your food.
Sure the food was good, but the best part was smoking it! My uncle would get so excited, he’d hurry up and taste the food just to be able to be the one holding the little hose in the container. It put a smile on my face.
At the end of our taste test, he told me he would really like to try it with some black cherry wood chips or mesquite. I think that was a hint for me to go back! LOL.
This would definitely be a great gift for a meat lover or entertainer that doesn’t have space (or patience) for a proper smoker but would like some of the flavor. It would also make a great gift for that hard to buy for Dad or the Dad who has everything!
