Right In The Oven Smoking Recipe
3 Tbsp. Liquid smoke
1 x 6 quart pan or possibly casserole with tight fitting lid
1 x Steamer or possibly rack which fits inside pan
Meat or possibly fish to smoke
- Now you can have the smoked effect and similar flavor without a fire using your oven. The technique is called oven-smoking and the ingredient which makes it possible is "liquid smoke". This preparation flavors foods, but it does not preserve them as true smoking-brining folled by partial drying does.
- The pale liquid, slold in small bottles alongside seasoning sauces in the supermarket, is actually made from smoke. As the wood burns, the smoke is captured intubes, where it cools and condenses, and then is filtered and bottled. It comes in several flavors.
- Oven smoking is actually a combination of baking and steaming. The equipment is simple: a f to 6 qt pan with a tight lid and a rack which will fit inside. All you do is pour a small amount of liqid smoke in the pan, set foods you want to smoke on the rack, cover and bake. As the smoke evaporates it permeates the food. A little goes a long way and it tastes stronger when the food is cool.
- Oven smoked foods will keep well for a few days. To store wrap securely to prevent smoke flavor from permeating other items in your refrigerator.
