You don't know anything about smoking? No problem, we are happy to give you a lesson in smoking for beginners! First of all, it's important to brine your ingredients before you put them in your BBQ smoker, follow the instructions in your recipe. What many people don't know is that you can smoke both hot and cold. The big difference between those two methods is the temperature. When smoking hot, the temperature may not exceed the limit of 70 to 75 °C. By filling your BBQ smoker with smoking chips or wood chunks soaked in water, your preparation will have a smoky flavour and will be cooked. With cold smoking, on the other hand, your preparation is only smoked but not cooked. This takes place at a low temperature, between 20 and 25 °C. By smoking ingredients at a cold temperature, you remove moisture from the raw product and thus inhibit bacterial growth. This ensures a longer shelf life. With this method you use Barbecook's cold smoke generator which you fill with smoking dust and you let it smoulder with a tea light inside your BBQ smoker. You gently blow out the flame as soon as the smoking dust starts to discolour. The smoke should be thin and bluish in colour. Then follow the times indicated in your recipe and try not to get your preparation out of the BBQ smoker earlier than indicated. Patience is a beautiful virtue!
