Great indoor smoker
on April 30, 2014
I use a traditional outdoor smoker routinely on weekends. Those are typically low temp, slow smoking 3-8 hour projects. After reading other reviews and viewing YouTube videos, I bought the Cameron Stovetop Smoker, with the hopes of being able to do quicker, impromptu meals during the week. This product does the job nicely. The temperatures are higher (medium heat on the stovetop - 350F) so the cooking is much quicker. You only use 1 to 1.5 tbsp of wood chips (dust). (it came with 2 small containers of wood). I am impressed with the results. Did 5 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts in only 20 mins. Finished by placing the pan in the oven under the broiler for 3 mins. Smoke flavor was strong, meat was juicy.
Clean up is very easy, wipe out the chips, drippings, etc and place into the dishwasher. The pan will turn black on the inside bottom where the chips were, but this is normal. (like seasoning a pan), there is a covering pan and rack which separates the wood from your food.
I was concerned about how smokey the house would get. It does leak smoke slightly, but not greatly. We have a range hood which easily handled this small amount easily. There was no residual smoke smell the next morning. Love this product.
