The aroma and taste of meat that is slowly cooking in a smoker is simply divine. Not everyone has the luxury of owning a smoker or even a back porch to put it on. For those who love the taste of smoked meat but have no place to cook it, these steps will have you getting delicious smoked meat without a smoker, in your very own kitchen.
Things You'll Need
- Aluminum foil
- Wok, large pot or rectangular baking pan
- Wire rack
- Hardwood cooking sawdust
- Meat of your choice
Put a layer or two of aluminum foil on the bottom of your wok, large pot or rectangular baking pan.
Scatter one or two tbsps. of the cooking sawdust on top of the aluminum foil.
Take a wire rack and put it at least 2 inches above the sawdust. If the wire rack does not sit high enough above the sawdust when resting on the edges of the pan or wok, you can raise it by placing wadded up aluminum foil under the legs of the wire rack.
Put whatever meat you want to smoke in the center of the wire rack. Cover the wire rack, meat and pan snuggly with either a lid or more aluminum foil. If you are using a lid, you can line it with aluminum foil as well to make the clean up easier.
Put the pan of meat on the stove and cook on high.
Turn the heat down to medium or medium low when you start to see smoke (usually takes only a minute or two). Cook until meat is done.
