Why Does a Smoker Add so Much Flavor to Meat (and What to Look for in One)

There is nothing better than smoked meats – whether it’s hot smoking and cooking while you add flavor, or cold smoke to add flavor for later, a good smoker is an amazing thing, whether you buy it or make it yourself . This graphic from Tasty Meat explains what to look out for and why you might want one.

If you’ve ever had thinly smoked brisket or even smoked wings, you already have it, but the smoker doesn’t just add flavor, it also keeps the meat nice and tender and helps keep the meat long-term if you want to age it. Of course, picking one is not as easy as just finishing and buying everything available at Home Depot – you need to carefully consider your options and what’s in your preferred price range.

The image below has some tips on how to get started, but it’s actually a path to Tasty Meat’s extensive guide to choosing the best smoker for you. It will lay out some of the basics, such as the pros and cons of vertical and horizontal smokers, as well as the different types of fuels you can buy – whether your smoker runs on wood, gas, pellets, or electric.
