When it came to cooking food, our earliest ancestors would often smoke the meat from their most recent hunt to help preserve and sanitise it. Nowadays, the appeal of smoking meats is to enhance the flavour, which has seen a considerable rise in popularity in the cooking method across the globe.

Kitchen Table owner and executive chef, Javier Chavez, recently told NBC, “It really brings out a unique flavour profile in the meat that is unmatched. The smokiness adds another layer of flavour to the meat, just like adding salt and pepper, but it goes way beyond that.”

Meat prepared in a smoker also tends to be more tender, with a signature smoky flavour. Patience is the key, however, as the process can take several hours to achieve the unique flavour profile and desired tenderness.

If you’re looking to enjoy the deliciousness of smoked meat at home, you can choose from a range of gas, electric or charcoal smokers, which are available on the Starts at 60 Marketplace. Charcoal smokers will provide that trademark strong smoky flavour, while gas and electric smokers will offer more convenience and cook faster. Fortunately, the Starts at 60 Marketplace has all your smoked-meat preparation needs covered. Let’s get cooking!
