Smokers: Indoors and Outdoors

Tuesday, December 7, 2010 @ 07:12 PM

There are many different kinds of smokers out there. BBQ smokers, for indoors or outdoors. Wood, propane, electric, and digital smokers. Stationary cabinets, outdoor rolling smokers, collapsible take where ever you want smokers. They even have smoker cans, smoker bags, and oven and stove top smokers for those in apartments or that have limited space but still like to enjoy great smokey flavor with their food.

The world has come a long way since the days of smoke lodges and tents. Foods used to be smoked and cured for preservation before mass production of refrigeration. There were also no trains, planes, or automobiles either. Food would last longer when smoked, for long trail pilgrimages and long sea voyages.  Many people enjoy smoked meats and cheeses today but buying these items can get pricey at times.

To have your own smoker is a fabulous option. You can make smoked briskets, turkeys, pepperoni, sausages, cheese, fruits and vegetables, etc. And even if you don’t have the space for a smoker, you can always stock up on smoker bags for just such an occasion as wanting a piece of smoked salmon for dinner. Throw in the fish, some potatoes and asparagus, put the bag in the oven and viola…a smoked meal all in one bag. Easy cooking and even easier clean up.
