Stovetop Smoker

This device is very similar to the popular Camerons Original Stovetop Smoker. Put wood chips or sawdust in the Max Burton Stovetop Smoker, install the drip pan and cooking rack, set meat on the rack, slide the lid on, turn your exhaust fan on high, turn the kitchen stove burner on high, and in about 30 minutes you have smoked, moist meat.

Fish might be done in 30 minutes, but other cuts may not be. Chops will take longer, and BBQ ribs, much longer. You can smoke ribs for about 30 minutes then take the lid off and move them to the oven to complete cooking. Baby backs will take another 3-4 hours. You can master this tool with the help of a really good digital instant read meat thermometer. In the case of ribs, you don't want to add sauce until the end. Place them under the broiler then cook until the sauce is caramelized. Be careful not to let it burn. You can apply many of our smoking recipes for use with this device.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different than your membership login.
