Recently in the UK, smoked food has become increasingly popular and a lot of food companies are now selling smoking grills, so that people can do their own smoking. People now want to smoke many kinds of food, including many popular meats and fish. Why is it than that smoked food has become more popular and why do people want to purchase equipment that allows them to do their own smoking? Here are a number of reasons why smoked food is becoming the go-to food in the UK.
- Better Tasting Food – When you decide to smoke your own food, you really are changing the way you cook your meat and it has a way of improving the flavour of the blandest of meats. The smoking process works in a number of ways, and if you are preparing some smoked foods like beef or pork, then you are cooking the meat for longer periods of time and this allows the collagen in the meat to be broken down, and this makes the meat much more tender. If you are just grilling the meat, then you don’t get this effect and the added taste of the meat is an additional benefit.
- Easy To Do – Smoking is a time consuming process and is not as easy as some people would have you believe. If definitely requires more cooking time and a lot more attention needs to be paid to the workings of the grill, if you are not to spoil the food. Thankfully, grill companies have risen to the task and are designing grills that make all of this work much easier for us to do. If you are tempted to get yourself a smoking grill, then its good to start at the beginning and work your way up. A starter grill allows you to place smoking chips inside a smoke box and you can put this into your standard barbeque, that you already have.
- Different Flavours – The great thing about smoking your own food is that you get to change the way food tastes. You can purchase many different kinds of flavoured wood chips and this changes the taste of the smoke, which will be incorporated into your food. You can get maple flavour, apple flavour and many others that will completely change the way food tastes forever. Whatever you decide to choose, there is one sure thing and that is that smoked food is here to stay in the UK and it is going to be even more popular than it already is now.
- Proven Techniques – Smoking has been going on for centuries and it has proven itself time and time again, that it is a much better way to cook than plain grilling. Grilling doesn’t allow you to add subtle flavours to your meat like apple and maple and is a pretty boring way to cook your food.
