Styles of smokers and grills

By: heena verma


There are many makes and styles of smokers and grills. Some units have been adapted to be both. Whatever is wanted by a customer looking around has probably already been built.

One type of smoker that can also grill is a pipe smoker. A pipe smoker is a twist on other smokers already being sold in the marketplace. A pipe type smoker has a long metal pipe coming up from the smoker unit. This is where the amount of smoke is contained allowing for whatever level of smoke in the cooking chamber. Because the smoke is also heated, one can adjust the temperature in the chamber by either opening the top of the pipe or closing it shut. Pipe smokers are convenient and are used by many people who smoke meat. Go to www.classic-dessert-collection.com. Pipe smokers come in many sizes. From small units used by couples without kids, to backyard units large enough to smoke larger amounts, there is a smoker built for just ones needs. There are even commercial size units that are towed by trucks. People who search out smoker restaurants may have seen large trailers behind the buildings of the restaurant without even thinking about it.

Smoker units can be located by searching the internet and by shopping in a store where they sell smokers. There are even specialty stores packed with almost any style desired. Proper Cooking Tips for Pipe Smokers Smoking meat is part skill, part experience, and part equipment. If someone is new to smoking meat, asking others about basic things one needs to learn will really help. Most individuals won't share secrets about their recipes, but they will share the basics of what to do. One can look on the internet for recipes and some of that great taste. The longer someone smokes meat, the easier information and secret recipes will be learned.

Something that should be mentioned about pipe smokers is that the pipe is almost as hot as the cooking chamber itself. When adjusting the amount of smoke coming from the pipe, have a leather glove handy so that one can safely adjust the pipe lid without getting burned. If, while using the pipe smoker, bad weather should approach, the pipe smoker will be fine. The pipe is located at the rear of the smoker and is on the left or right. Rain coming in from the pipe will not drip into the cooking chamber because of its location, and water will not put out the fire for the same reason.

The larger, free-standing Smoker ovens enable a greater amount of food to be smoked at one time. Many of the larger, free-standing Smokers can be used for either hot or cold smoking. Although there are many different sizes of self-contained or free-standing Smoker units, the most common are the cabinet-like box ovens or oval ovens that may contain from 2 to 8 racks to hold the foods. Available with all types of heat sources, the easiest to use and control are the electric or infrared heat models. Many smoke the food with the use of a water pan placed on the bottom of the oven box. The most recent versions of technology being produced for Smokers is the Digital Smoker. This type of Smoking Oven is typically built as a stainless steel cabinet with instrumentation that precisely controls time, temperature and the amount of smoke used to flavor the food as it is cooked and smoked.

Often used to both hot or cold smoke meats and fruits, the Digital Smoker contains an infrared heat source with various wattages that may range from just over 100 watts to over 500 watts that are activated for cooking and smoking processes. It is important to realize that with any smoker and especially a stovetop smoker, a significant amount of smoke may be released during the cooking process. Therefore, an exhaust fan must be strong enough to adequately remove the smoke from any interior section of the house where the foods are being smoked with smaller types of Smokers. When purchasing a Smoker, ask about the oven bag, enclosed pan Smoker, or self-contained oven being provided with the Smoker. Some Smokers may allow too much smoke to escape, so it is wise to consider this potential problem before purchasing a specific type of Smoker. It is always wise to use Smokers, especially larger types of Smokers in areas that are outside of the interior of a home or building that may be adversely affected by the smoke smell, the heat of the unit or any other effect that may not allow it to be safely used. Read all equipment manuals thoroughly before proceeding with the smoking of any foods.
