This is a lovely device, but I will not wax eloquent about the uses to which I have put it because other reviewers seem to have been more adept and imaginative than I--not unexpected for a man less than a genius in the kitchen. Suffice it to say that I have smoked almonds, cheese, sea salt, and a couple other things, with good success.

Where I will add a kudo is for the company behind the product. My Smoking Gun came with a faulty switch: sometimes the fan did not come on, other times it would, and I thought it was simply a matter of weak (?) batteries or smutz on the terminals. But no: the switch eventually failed completely about three days after the warranty expired.

Nevertheless, I called the company and talked to a nice gentleman who cut me some slack: they would send me a new one and a box to return the old one. The new one works perfectly. They went the extra mile for me, that's worth a lot, and I'd like to point that out in public. Nicely done, PolyScience, and thanks.

Style Name: Smoking Gun
I just got this, so I don't know how long it will last at this point. I used this immediately because it seemed like a neat idea. I didn't have much at the time, or maybe I was just lazy, so I opened a can of tuna and threw it in a bowl. It was simple to use, didn't take much time, and I was amazed with the results. The tuna had a hickory smoke flavor to it and tasted awesome on crackers. I was amazed at how simple it was and how little time it took!! As long as this thing keeps working it will likely be one of my favorite kitchen items!!

Style Name: Smoking Gun
We followed the instructions and all the videos exactly, but it made everything smell and taste like it was in a fire sale. I've smoked meat outside on the grill and know the wonderful scent and taste of real smoked food. This product doesn't come close. It either does nothing (if you smoke meat before you cook it) or it makes it smell and taste like an ashtray. I'm suspicious of all the positive reviews here because it is pretty obvious (also check out the reviews on Williams Sonoma's website). We did several tests including a scientific taste test on bacon - compared pre-cooked-smoked, post-cooked-smoked and un-smoked. The effect was either very subtle (pre-cooked) or ashtray/fire-sale (post-cooked).

Here is a video from the president of the manufacturer, Polyscience. [...]

Note in his video:
1) He has trouble keeping the device lit
2) He has to smoke the food twice
3) It still comes out "too subtle" - his own words
4) There is no point in using it to smoke food prior to cooking - his words
5) He mentions that "fresh" smoke is important because "stale" smoke will make the food taste "like an ashtray" - his words
6) Smoke escapes from the container into the kitchen (a problem noted by several reviewers here and at WS)

All in all, it seemed like a clever idea. I really wanted it to work, but it just doesn't. I'll go back to either using a real smoker, liquid smoke or smoked salt and smoked paprika to get the taste I'm after. It does do a great job of stinking up the kitchen and your clothes. Plus charging $20 for tiny jars of wood chips is a total ripoff. I guess the whole thing is just smoke and mirrors.

All I can say is awesome...I originally saw the smoking gun after going to a bar in Manchester, England, called the Alchemist...they had a drink on the menu called the smoky ol' fashioned (and there are cool videos on youtube on how to make the drink)...best infused bourbon i've ever had, and had to get the gun when I got home...One of the best investments ever!!! Recreated the drink and very happy!!! Also, have been smoking burgers before putting them on the grill...awesome!!! The Camerons Smoking chips works well with the gun...i got the 8 pack (pints) for like $28, and it should last a long time!!!

Tried smoking hamburgers first, and oh my gosh! Best hamburger I ever made. My family is begging me to use it again.

Style Name: Smoking Gun
I bought this elsewhere and just saw that Amazon sells it so thought I would write a review. The bottom line is I am going to send it back and I just bought a stove top smoker from Amazon to replace it. Here's why: I don't think it is a good value at $99, I might have kept it if it were $25. I tried smoking a half side of salmon. The smoke really does not get strong enough for my taste. After a few hours, when the leftovers sat in the refrigerator, I could hardly taste the smoke at all. Next time I used more chips but still the smoke taste was too mild. Also I thought it might be less work than throwing chips on the BBQ but no. You have to cook the food first then use the gun. This messes up the cooking pan and perhaps another platter. I don't like to smoke up the house so I take it outside to a table so why bother if I go outside to BBQ? It is the same amount of effort and actually slower than just using the BBQ. The stove top smoker sounds like less work and better results. It might work for smoky cocktails, I haven't tried that.

Works great just remember to smoke proteins after they are cooked for maximum flavor. Easy to use and you can make your own wood dust with a drill for the smoker.
