The SmokePistol smoke generator can be used for both hot or cold smoking.
The installation of the SmokePistol smoke generator is quick and simple. It is necessary to drill a ½ inch hole in the smoker or barbecue grill or locate a hole that is at least that big or bigger. Most grills have existing holes that can be used. A screw included and is inserted into the grill or smoker and the SmokePistol hangs on that screw with the barrel inserted into the larger hole for the smoke output.
Smoke over a longer duration without adding more wood. You can smoke over a longer duration without adding more wood!
When Wood chips thrown into a BBQ grill all heat up and burn at the same time thus, you get a lot of smoke for a very short duration. That is not good for smoking food. For smoked meats cheeses and fish you need smoke over a long period of time and the SmokePistol delivers. No need to open the smoker to add wood!
The smoke is generated outside the smoker or grill and blown into it so there is no more loss of heat from opening the smoker or grill constantly to add wood. No woodpiles are needed with the SmokePistol.
The wood cartridges are small and easy to light. They last for about 3 hours each so you don't need to keep a woodpile or large bags of chips. Another great thing is that there are 9 different flavors of real wood cartridges. So if you use Maple for turkey Hickory for ham Alder for your fish and Pecan for ribs you always have room for a good stock of flavored wood.
Hickory, mesquite, alder, apple, maple, pecan, oak, black walnut and cherry are all readily available. Try different flavors for different smoked foods. The wood cartridges come in packs of 3 and when compared with the amount of wood chips or chunks you go through in a BBQ or smoking session the price is downright cheap not to mention a whole lot easier.
Just use an extended lighter or long match on the tip for a couple of seconds and it's lit. No lighter fluid and no hassles!
