Smoked Olive Oil Rosemary Shrimp & A Smoker Giveaway

 

 

 

 

This is by far my favorite giveaway I’ve ever been a part of.

 

I’ve secretly always wanted a smoker. Such unique flavors and no real way to get that without very specific culinary equipment. But the smokers I have always come across are so large, bulky and intimidating. Including those that my Step Dad seemed to fashion on a regular basis out of abandoned aluminum items such as non-working refrigerators and ancient gym lockers.

 

I didn’t really want one of those eyesore monstrosities just hanging around my back yard. Clearly there was some adolescent trauma involved in my hesitation to purchase a smoker.

 

And then I get an email from those wonderful people over at Big Kitchen, with tales of a stovetop smoker that I can store in my pantry.  They even wanted to give it to me, and give one to you. Of course, I said something along the lines of Hell Yes.

 

This is a fantastic option for those of you who want those great flavors of smoke without a gigantic metal object taking up residence in a remote corner of your yard.

 

And if you win, you can walk around your kitchen thinking, “I wonder if I can smoke that?” as you slowly realize what it must be like to live in Snoop Dogs head. Sort of.

 

As a girl who is constantly striving to fit into skinny jeans, I also feel compelled to point out that this little sucker crams an enormous amount of flavor into any food without adding a single calorie. And in most instances, it removes calories by rendering fat from meat. So much win.

It’s also simple to use.

 

Step 1: Place the base of the smoker on top of a stove burner, and add a few table spoons of woodchips in the middle of the base of the smoker

 

 

 

Step 2: add the drip try right on top of the pile of wood chips.

 

Step 3: Spray the wire rack with cooking spray and add to the top of the drip tray. Add the food to the wire rack.

 

Step 4: Slide the lid onto the smoker leaving a small vent. Turn the burner to medium heat (don’t turn it too high).

 

Step 5: once you start to see the first slight whips of smoke (about 2 minutes) use oven mitts to close the lid and start the cooking time.

 

A few things to remember while smoking food indoors:

  • Be realistic about the fact that you are using a smoker indoors, the smell will invade your house. But it seemed to dissipate in a few hours.  Run your hood fan on high while smoking.
  • This gets blazing hot. Keep the hands of tiny humans far far away from this thing.
  • Although this stovetop smoker was a bit smaller than I had expected, the instructions show you how to easily modify the unit to accommodate larger items, like a turkey. You can smoke a TURKEY in this thing! (Get ready for a very smoky Thanksgiving)
  • You can even use this on your regular grill alongside your burgers and hot dogs.

Smoked Olive Oil & Rosemary Shrimp

 

¼ cup olive oil

1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary

pinch of salt

½ tsp pepper

14 large raw shrimp, peeled

    Boo for me for missing the giveaway, but I am going to keep an eye out for one of these suckers. In the meantime, I have a question: did you put water or anything in the very bottom layer? How does the metal not just burn without anything in it? Or did I misunderstand a step? :) Like you, I have always been very intimidated by smokers!…

    • Jackie September 5, 2012 at 8:58 pm #

      I thought the same thing! But, no, you don’t need any water at all. Just wood chips. Works great. I’m going to try to
      Smoke a fryer chicken this weekend.
