Though it may seem obvious that flavor is the name of the game when it comes to cooking, just think about how many tasteless meals are being consumed right now. The simple truth is that building flavor requires effort and patience, not to mention a little know-how. When it comes to infusing foods with great smoky flavor, the methods can be downright daunting. But it doesn't have to be that way.

The Smoking Gun is a clever kitchen gadget that requires none of the patience, effort, or knowledge that other smoking methods demand. The small battery-operated accessory weighs only 2 pounds, but delivers big, custom flavor to foods before or after cooking. Retaining heat in the anodized aluminum smoking chamber, the device can be used to impart flavor to delicate foods without adding heat. Fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses can be given additional flavor without changing texture or temperature.

The smoker costs are $100, and includes two half-ounce jars of hickory and apple wood shavings, and the same company has mesquite and cherry wood also available. Far more exciting is the fact that the machine is not limited to proprietary blends; tea and spices can also be used. An 18-inch hose is also included, allowing for easy-access smoking in everything from bags to cookware. Regardless of the level of kitchen dexterity or even desire, the handheld smoker provides an easy way for everybody to add great smoky flavor to anything.
