Gadget Review: Smoke Gun

Gadget Review: Smoke Gun

There’s something incredibly primal about smoke. It appeals to us in a way that few others things to, in a truly base way that will have feelings stirring inside you that you never knew existed. Much like how you feel when you set eyes on a stunning London escort for the first time: filled with an impulse to just enjoy it, a connection that seems hardwired into your brain. It speaks to us of hunting, of war, of masculinity in its rawest and most primal form. It’s why we love to BBQ, it’s why we love those sticky, smoky sauces.

And it’s why we were strangely excited to get our hands on one of these smoke guns. They might seem like a lot of faff, the kind of thing you would expect a kitchen geek to be impressed by as he gellifies this and spherifies that. Actually try one though, and you’ll soon see why this isn’t the case. It’s a great way to add that smoky touch to any food, though we found that good cheese and meat held the taste best. You don’t have to be a chef to use it either, anyone from a banker in the City to an escort in London to a student in Mile End can use it to the same incredible effect.

Not to mention the drama. Pull back the cloche and reveal your dish in wisps of smoke and any guests are sure to be impressed. To be quite honest with you, it’s the easiest way to simply buy culinary prowess. It looks incredible, and it adds a depth of flavour that normally takes a huge deal of skill to coax out of ordinary ingredients. Think of it as the London escort of the culinary world: a quick, easy and thoroughly satisfying solution to what is otherwise an immensely taxing problem. Just buy one, fire it up and there you go. It really couldn’t be more simple.
