Decide how much you're willing to spend on a cocktail smoker. This will help you narrow down your options and avoid overspending.
If you’re purchasing the cocktail smoker as a gift for someone, be sure it comes in nice packaging and will store away easily.
Most cocktail smokers require the following: Wooden smoke top, wood chips, culinary torch for burning wood chips, and butane to fuel the torch. Very few cocktail smoker kits include butane. Butane is included in some Aged & Charred kits.
Choose a reputable retailer with good customer service and a return policy in case the cocktail smoker doesn't meet your expectations or has any defects.
Cocktail smokers come in different sizes, so think about how much space you have available and how many cocktails you plan to smoke at once.
Different types of wood chips will impart different flavors to your cocktails. Consider which flavors you prefer and choose wood chips accordingly. Generally, oak is preferred by whiskey drinkers for smoking cocktails.
Look up reviews of different cocktail smokers to see what other buyers have to say about their experiences. This can help you identify any potential issues or limitations of a particular model.
Some brands are known for their quality and reliability when it comes to cocktail smokers. Do some research to see which brands are recommended by other cocktail enthusiasts. By following these steps, you can find a cocktail smoker that fits your needs and budget, and start experimenting with smoky cocktails at home.
Cocktail smokers work by infusing cocktails or other beverages with smoke to add a unique flavor and aroma. In order to do this, most smokers contain all or a variation of the following parts.
Wood chips come in different flavors, such as hickory, applewood, or mesquite, and each type will impart a different flavor to your cocktail.
This can be lighter or a torch but in general, torches work much better.
Cocktail smokers vary by design and include smoke top lids, smoke guns, smoke boards and smoke domes. We’ve found that the best cocktail smokers use top lids. Cocktail smokers are a fun and unique way to experiment with different flavors and add a new dimension to your favorite cocktails or other beverages.
The time needed to smoke a spirit or cocktail varies depending on the method used and personal taste preferences. If you're using a smoking gun, filling a glass cloche or large glass with smoke and covering your cocktail for about 1-5 minutes usually suffices.
Using wood chips and a flame to smoke the glass beforehand would also take around the same time, about 1-5 minutes. If you're infusing an entire bottle of spirit, you might let it sit with the smoke for 10-20 minutes or longer for a deeper smoky flavor. Keep in mind that the longer you smoke, the stronger the smoky notes will be, so it's advisable to start with a shorter time and adjust to taste.
