Style Name: Smoking Gun Verified Purchase
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.

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!!

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.

I had seen this used on several cooking show programs, and finally broke down and bought one for myself. Greatest thing I could have done. Immediately did hamburgers, steaks and even smoked some Bourbon.. I smoked the meats raw then did them cooked. More flavor with the raw method for me. I see lots of used in the future...gonna try cheeses next.

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!!!

The smoking gun does everything that it is designed to do however, like many of the other reviews here, the smoking gun CAN leave a rather off putting 'ash tray' like taste to your food. From what I experimented with, many of the proteins that are mild in nature coupled with smoke usually resulted in the ash tray flavor. However, if the smoke if the proteins are only for about 10-15 min it was fine. Lastly, the Smoking Gun cant smoke liquids at all. I've tired a few drinks but it resulted with little smoke flavor. This product also makes a great smoking device for pot.

I got this for my husband for Christmas. He put it aside thinking it was useless. Then we tried it on a rotisserie chicken that we shredded and in a minute we had smoked chicken. I don't like a heavy smoked flavor and this little device just gives it a nice, slightly smoked flavor. Now my husband thinks it was a great present.

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.
