A food smoker does what it says. It allows you to cook food by smoking it! It can not get any simpler than this. It earned its name as food smoker as it was used to prepare food items like bacon, fish, sausage and pretty much every other kind of meat that becomes better when smoked. While it is possible to get a smoker that is an independent cooking device of its own, it is a matter of convenience to get a food smoker that is built as part of a grilling device. A food smoker, of course uses smoke generated by a fire source burning at the base, while the food hangs above it, getting smoked.
Introduce A Little Variety
If you are planning to host a weekend party that involves lots of friends and have decided for the theme to be a barbeque, you may hear some complaints that barbeque meat alone is boring. With a food smoker, you add the necessary variable to the equation, spice things up, in a manner of literal speaking. While there is no way smoked food preparations can form the main course of the food, it could be served as a side dish.
When you chose to smoke side dishes along with barbeque, you are presented with lots of options. You can make smoked fish, tomatoes, cheese and salmon. With a grill plus smoker combo cooking device, you could be preparing tasty barbeque meat on one side and deliciously exciting seafood dishes on the other end.
Smoking Sea Food
One could always argue that seafood can be prepared by conventional cooking methods too, and there really is no need for a smoker to cook fish and salmon. This is mostly true. However, smoking the food gives it a unique twist as far as taste is concerned. It is hard to describe a taste, but you will simply have to take our word for it. Smoked fish is the best among all methods of preparing fish.
When compared to a grill, food smokers are reliably small and her portable. Smokers, portable as they are, make for excellent companions when you decide to venture out for camping excursions. They are easy to carry, store in the back of your van or car and to set up at the picnic spot. Once you are done with your cooking, they are easy to clean while simple to re-pack and store back in the vehicle.
