A commercial smoker gives you the ability to offer your customers smokey-flavoured meats all year round (even in the frigid Canadian winters). These are a convenient indoor option for roasting or smoking your foods, whether you have a BBQ restaurant or a Montreal diner with smoked meats. The way these commercial smokers work is simple: they heat up wet wood chips until they start smoking, which will cook the meats with a smokey flavour just like it came from a grill or open fire.
There are a number of foods that you can cook on these indoor smokers: roasted pigs, ribs, duck, briskets, and more.
Smokers come in a few sizes: full height, half height, or countertop. You'll need to consider your desired output, and the amount of floor space you have available in your kitchen.
One great option for these smokers is the "cook and hold" option. This gets rid of the complicated timing that can often happen when smoking your food. Instead of having to perfectly synchronize your cooking with your customers' order, you can instead cook the meat and hold it at a desirable temperature for serving. And some smokers will have a humidity option for holding or for the cooking process.
