The Smoking Gun is made by Polyscience.
Well, let's start with Polyscience (http://www.polyscienceculinary.com/). They are one of the best modernist food tool providers around. They are true innovators, and they help us cook interesting "out of the box" type of food.
One of Polyscience's many tools is the Smoking Gun.
There are many reasons why I use it is, but the biggest is because I'm from Memphis - home of the slow smoked BBQ. Smokey food rules the city and it is a huge part of our local food culture.
The Smoking Gun (http://www.polyscienceculinary.com/the-smoking-gun.php) shoots smoke out a tube and you put the tube in a bag with whatever you want to smoke, and leave it in there for a few minutes. It is that easy, and the solid smokey taste is real. It has no artificial tones of fake smoke.
They offer several kinds of woods. Hickory is the strongest and boldest flavor, It will make you go WOW. While Cherry and Apple are more subtle and sweeter.
If you use your smoking gun a lot, the smoke may start to taste bitter- either get some new tube or soak your tube in bleach and water.
Now, I have experimented quite a bit with the smoking gun and I have over 40 recipes so this is not just a one shot gun!
