Yeah, you're gonna get smoke. Just no getting around that. But, since it holds less (if you're using one like mine was), you'll also use less wood, and smoke things in less time. My normal range hood was usually enough to keep us from asphyxiating. However, during the summer what I usually did was put the stove-top smoker on the grate of my larger outdoor grill/smoker when I wanted to smoke smaller or more delicate things like fish, which didn't need the volume of smoke an outdoor unit generates.
I hope you get to use it. Smoked foods are great! Trout and cheese were two of my favorites.
Dammit. That's it. Off to Amazon again....

For the price, if I hate it, I will still use it for awhile to get educated on the smoking, then if happy, will look for a different one, if I need to. However, I have a good feeling about this one.
Karen/NoCA wrote:So far, easy to use and clean up. I did a pan-full of multi- colored bell peppers, and different onions to go with burgers Gene was grilling. Veggies came out a little crunchy, which we loved, and a nice smoke flavor from alder chips. I used the leftover veggies the next morning. Gave them a quick sauté, along with home made red sauce, which had red peppers in it, put in a couple of eggs to poach and we had a lovely breakfast. Next time, we are doing halibut... I did pick up wild, dry packed sea scallops today, those might just be great smoked. Gene found room for it in the cabinet under his big grill, so I was happy about that too.
