EMERILS’S SMOKER BAG
Emeril has touched all our lives, well at least mine. Julia started the whole sha-bang and Emeril just kicked it up a couple of notches. With fame some people need to cash out on their celebrity. Do you blame? Emeril has endorsed these smoker bags and we are going to give them a ride. The people from Carmeron Products were generous to give us a couple of samples.
What is a smoker bag? It is a insulated aluminum foil bag with specific flavor wood chips. You place the bag on a heat source and smoke will fill the bag permeating your protein of choice. Today we are going to try some seasoned chicken breast.
It is hard for me to do, but I followed the instructions. Season your meat and place in bag with the “This side down”. You can use this smoker bag in your inside oven, outside barbeque charcoal and the heaven forbid gas grill. I was a little paranoid to try this product inside our abode to bypass the wrath of Ms. Goofy if the smoke escaped.
Thirty minutes later this bag looked like an Orville Redenbacher popcorn bag. The bag was emptied into black iron to cool. When we opened the bag a small flume of smoke escaped. It was not enough to send of the smoke alarms. That was one of my concerns.
The Breasts were so moist and smoky. Emeril is still my hero! He would never steer us wrong? Would I use these bags again? I think they are convenient to smoke vegetables or a small meat meal. These bags are self contained and when you open them just do it with ventilation. The chicken breast is going to be used in a broccoli soup. I will recommend these bags for the convenience and the easy usage. They might be blasphemous for the hard core smokers, but; Why not! "What, Me Worry!” (Alfred E. Newman)
