A Christmassy themed hot smoking set including Amigo Hot Smoker, seasonal wood chips and stainless steel smoker box. Not just for Christmas!
The Amigo hot smoker is a custom designed food smoker which will create delicious succulent hot smoked dishes with ease. Hot smoking is a wonderful way to cook food slowly at lower temperatures whilst infusing with aromatic wood smoke. Food steams whilst it cooks and results are always juicy, tender and full of flavour. This Christmas themed pack will bring a new foodie twist to traditional Christmas fayre and you'll be amazed by the results. Cook your Christmas turkey over chestnut wood chips, or hot smoke salmon in whiskey oak chips. And after Christmas, the cooking possibilities are endless!
The heat source for this type of hot smoker is charcoal and we recommend you use a good quality charcoal briquette which will retain heat more effectively. Fill the stainless steel smoker box with a large handful of wood chips and place the box directly onto the white hot coals. A water pan sits directly above the heat and smoke production area and this is filled with warm water, to which you can add a dash of wine and fresh herbs or whole spices. These flavours, along with the aromatic wood smoke, will circulate within the smoker whilst the food gently cooks. Unlike a barbecue, once your smoker is set up you can leave it to work its magic. No frantic turning is required just as your guests arrive and you are about to serve. Slow cooking brings out more intense flavours and food will always be moist and tender which is why turkey and tougher joints of meat like brisket, often prone to dry out or be a little tough, are a great hit when cooked using this method. And, best of all, this smoker can be used outdoors in all weathers and at any time of year. Think of it as an outdoor oven.
This hot smoker pack is supplied with a stainless steel smoker box into which the wood chips for your wood smoke flavour are placed. The box has a loose fitting lid with perforations and as it conducts heat the chips begin to smoulder.
The ProQ Amigo Smoker is made of porcelain coated steel in a shiny black finish. The handles are wooden with powder coated metal fittings. The smoker box is solid stainless steel. All our wood chips are 100% natural, untreated wood from FSC or sustainably managed sources.
Please note: Some self assembly is required to fix the handles, clasps and legs in place. All fittings supplied.
The smoker diameter is 43cm and height is 91cm. The overal diameter including the handles is 57cm. The stainless steel smoker box measures H4.5 x W8c x D18cm. The wood chips weigh 500g and are packed by volume in recycled reinforced brown paper bags with a colour twine closure.
