Smoked Olive Oil Rosemary Shrimp & A Smoker Giveaway

 

 

 

 

This is by far my favorite giveaway I’ve ever been a part of.

 

I’ve secretly always wanted a smoker. Such unique flavors and no real way to get that without very specific culinary equipment. But the smokers I have always come across are so large, bulky and intimidating. Including those that my Step Dad seemed to fashion on a regular basis out of abandoned aluminum items such as non-working refrigerators and ancient gym lockers.

 

I didn’t really want one of those eyesore monstrosities just hanging around my back yard. Clearly there was some adolescent trauma involved in my hesitation to purchase a smoker.

 

And then I get an email from those wonderful people over at Big Kitchen, with tales of a stovetop smoker that I can store in my pantry.  They even wanted to give it to me, and give one to you. Of course, I said something along the lines of Hell Yes.

 

This is a fantastic option for those of you who want those great flavors of smoke without a gigantic metal object taking up residence in a remote corner of your yard.

 

And if you win, you can walk around your kitchen thinking, “I wonder if I can smoke that?” as you slowly realize what it must be like to live in Snoop Dogs head. Sort of.

 

As a girl who is constantly striving to fit into skinny jeans, I also feel compelled to point out that this little sucker crams an enormous amount of flavor into any food without adding a single calorie. And in most instances, it removes calories by rendering fat from meat. So much win.

It’s also simple to use.

 

Step 1: Place the base of the smoker on top of a stove burner, and add a few table spoons of woodchips in the middle of the base of the smoker

 

 

 

Step 2: add the drip try right on top of the pile of wood chips.

 

Step 3: Spray the wire rack with cooking spray and add to the top of the drip tray. Add the food to the wire rack.

 

Step 4: Slide the lid onto the smoker leaving a small vent. Turn the burner to medium heat (don’t turn it too high).

 

Step 5: once you start to see the first slight whips of smoke (about 2 minutes) use oven mitts to close the lid and start the cooking time.

 

A few things to remember while smoking food indoors:

  • Be realistic about the fact that you are using a smoker indoors, the smell will invade your house. But it seemed to dissipate in a few hours.  Run your hood fan on high while smoking.
  • This gets blazing hot. Keep the hands of tiny humans far far away from this thing.
  • Although this stovetop smoker was a bit smaller than I had expected, the instructions show you how to easily modify the unit to accommodate larger items, like a turkey. You can smoke a TURKEY in this thing! (Get ready for a very smoky Thanksgiving)
  • You can even use this on your regular grill alongside your burgers and hot dogs.

  1. If I won this “little” smoker, my husband could do all his meats in his “big” smoker outside, and I could keep this one pristine for veggies and cheeses for my vegetarian self!!

  2. I am an owner of a large smoker, the Weber bullet but I love it, nothing compares to the unique flavor and smell from smoking, even if it means me setting my alarm to tend it at 3am….yawn! This kitchen one would be great for smaller faster smokes..awesome!

  14. Boo for me for missing the giveaway, but I am going to keep an eye out for one of these suckers. In the meantime, I have a question: did you put water or anything in the very bottom layer? How does the metal not just burn without anything in it? Or did I misunderstand a step? 🙂 Like you, I have always been very intimidated by smokers!…

    1. I thought the same thing! But, no, you don’t need any water at all. Just wood chips. Works great. I’m going to try to
      Smoke a fryer chicken this weekend.
