Camerons Products mission is to provide the best possible service and value for all of their customers, in a knowledgeable and efficient way. We are intent on becoming one of the premier suppliers in the industries of our choice. By utilizing decades of experience with smoke cooking infusion, we provide uniquely designed products for the optimum total result, which surprise even the most experienced cooks. Camerons has been extremely careful in selecting the actual size of wood chips that should be used for the different smokers and smoke boxes in order to create the best flavor infusion possible with the least amount of smoke escaping when the smoker is opened upon completion. Wood chunks and pellets in the different flavors are available for use in all outdoor BBQs and Smokers.
Flavor infusion using a Camerons Smoker is healthy - no extra fat, oil or salt needs to be used, and you are in control of how much and what flavor of wood, herbs and spice should be added. For stovetop smoking indoors (hot smoking) the wood chips have been ground very small so that they start to smolder within one minute of being placed on a preheated stovetop set at a medium temperature. Two rounded tablespoons is the maximum that should be used for the strongest flavor and they should turn to ashes in twenty minutes. The flavor infusion will go on until the cooking time is complete, with the food steaming in its own juices. Upon opening the smoker, take care as hot steam will escape, but the wood flavor will have been absorbed, so there will be no smoke emitted.
Mesquite wood flavor can turn bitter if too many wood chips are used, tone them down with a little Apple or Cherry. In the last few years, Camerons Products has expanded their product range to offer not only a wide variety of unique items bringing excitement into the kitchen, but safety products and ways to keep prepared food hot or cold.
For cold smoking/curing with the outdoor electric smoker the wood chips are a slightly larger – these need to be soaked in water for 20 minutes before being placed in the small pan over the electric element. This provides the steam needed to keep the food product moist, and allows the smoke to be more intense, also lasting for a longer time. This flavor infusion method can last for several hours to get the best taste, so the wood chip pan may have to be filled 3 or 4 times during the curing process. Food smoking needs a very delicate touch, as it should subtle with the right wood flavor infused to bring out the best taste for that particular type of food. If it is too strong, it will become bitter or taste burned.
