Make a Smoker

Food smokers, as the name suggests, are the high temperature cooking appliances for ‘smoking’ various types of foods and dishes. You can smoke salmon and other fish, meats such as pork and chicken, cheeses and even nuts. This will add that extra flavour to your food which makes all the difference.

Hot Smoking vs Cold Smoking

Smoking can be either done hot or cold. Hot smoking cooks the food first and then subsequently smokes it for added flavour.

The foods you can hot smoke include:

  • Pork (ribs or loin)
  • Bacon
  • Turkey
  • Tofu

Whereas cold smoking can preserve the food while smoking it, when done for an extended period of time (anywhere between 1-30 days) at temperatures below 30oC. 

The foods you can cold smoke include:

  • Salmon
  • Dry cured salami
  • Cheese
  • Fruit
  • Nuts
  • Vegetables (garlic, potatoes)
