Cocktail Smoker Top vs Smoke Dome

by Jason Lowder September 12, 2022 3 min read

In a world of constant new inventions, it's hard to keep up with the latest and greatest. But when it comes to your home bar, you want to be on top of the trends.

Smoke domes and smoke tops are two of the newest products on the market that allow you to add a smoky flavor to your cocktails. But which one is better?

What is a Cocktail Smoke Dome and How Does It Work?

cocktail smoke dome is a glass or metal dome that is placed over a drink to create a smoky effect. 

The dome is usually placed over the drink after it has been poured and contains a small amount of liquid or ice.

The dome is then lifted, allowing the smoke to escape and creating a dramatic effect.

The process is simple, place your glass under the dome, rev up the gun, light the wood chips, and voila, big pillows of smoke!

They can be found at many bars and restaurants, or purchased online or at specialty stores.

Smoke domes come in a variety of sizes and shapes, so be sure to choose one that fits your needs.

What is a Smoke Top/Lid and How Does it Work?

A smoke top cocktail smoker is a device that has a small hole in the top and is used to serve drinks with a smoky flavor. 

The smoke is created by adding wood chips or pellets to the bottom of the base and then lighting them on fire.

The flame is then extinguished and the cup is placed upside down on the drink.

The smoky flavor comes from the wood chips that are burned in the bottom of the cup. The type of wood you use will determine the flavor of your drink.

For example, if you use oak chips, your drink will have a faint oak flavor. If you use hickory chips, your drink will have a strong hickory flavor. 

You can experiment with different types of wood to find the flavor that you like best.

Cocktail Smoke Dome vs Smoke Top: Pros and Cons of Each

When it comes to choosing the right smoking accessory for your needs, it’s important to compare all of your options. 

Two popular choices among smokers are the cocktail smoke dome and the smoke top. 

Both have their own unique set of pros and cons that should be considered before making a purchase.

Pros of a Dome

The cocktail smoke dome is a great choice for those who want to enjoy a more flavorful smoking experience and smoke multiple cocktails at once as well as other things like cheeses and fruits.

The dome traps in the smoke and allows it to circulate, giving you a more intense flavor with each hit.

This means that your hands and clothing will be free from soot and ash. However, this also means that the dome can get pretty hot, so be careful not to burn yourself.

Pros of a Top

The smoke top is a good choice for those who want an easy way to control their smoking experience. 

It's more affordable than other smoking tools, easy to use, and clean once you get the hang of it.

The only downside is that you need to buy additional equipments to make your smoking experience worthy. 

At at Aged & Charred, we're all about experience, that's why our Smoke Top Lid Kit includes Smoke Lid, wood chips, culinary torch, butane, and a gift box.
