The Polyscience Smoking Gin - Learn the basics and some alternative smokey hacks

Well, What can I say. I know it's winter and it's pretty colt outside one could be excused for being a little soft for not wanting to go outside in all weathers. Bring on The Smoking Gun from Polyscience and hey presto you're smoking food indoors. This small Gun allows the budding food smoker the luxuary of smoking small quantities of fish, cheese and nuts indoors. The gun comes with two tubs of dust. Apple and Hickory. They are a little small and the refills are a little pricey but this hand held, battery operated smoker produces enough smoke to give a light smokey touch to many dishes.

The Gun comes with handy rubber tube which allows your smoke to be directed into a cling filmed bowl or container so you don't upset the smoke alarm fairy. Batteries are included in the package and it only takes 2 minutes to set up. If you're a real foodi and you like your kitchen gadjets then this is for you.

If on the other hand you are a food smoking purist then this is not going to satisfy your apetite for food smoking equipment. Having said that it will give you options to broaden your smoked food options and it will give you reasonable results in under 10 minutes.  One thing's for sure, I will be demonstrating this smoking gun at the ludlow food festival when were there in September.

If you want to purchase one of these there are several places online where you can purchase one for your kitchen but more importantly, if you'd like to learn how to use it hop along to my Youtube Channel (Coldsmoking Digital Cookery School) where you can find a bunch of food smoking resources and the odd video where I use this piece of kit in particular.
