Smoker Bags

Published January 1, 2006. From Cook's Illustrated.

Overview:

Although we came up with an indoor method to produce great smoky ribs (see Oven-Barbecued Spareribs under Related Content), we wondered whether smoker bags on the market were worth an extra trip to the store.

The SAVU Smoker Bag wowed us with a simple system in which a mixture of ground wood chips, hardwood syrup, and natural sugars are contained within the walls of a large foil bag. This allowed the smoke to pass through small perforations in the foil to get to the food contained within. The ribs emerged juicy, tender, and—after a quick run under the broiler—nicely crusted.

    SAVU Smoker Bags

    This simple system—a mixture of ground wood chips, hardwood syrup, and natural sugars contained within the walls of a large foil bag—allowed the smoke to pass through small perforations in the foil to get to the food contained within (the food cooks inside the bag). The ribs emerged juicy, tender, and—after a quick run under the broiler—nicely crusted. These bags can be used in the oven or on the grill.
