In fact, it is used in almost every culture around the world- the Americans give it fancy names like barbeque but despite the method and name attached to it, here is why you should try out smoked meat
There is an inimitable flavor that engulfs meat when it is smoked that would make other cooking methods like stewing, grilling or baking stand from afar in awe.

It also melts fat which combines with the tender meat for a truly delicious eating experience. The flavor of the meat is also enhanced by the smells that smoking adds.

The hardwoods used as fuel during the process of smoking also helps to add flavor to the meat by accentuating the aroma of the smoke.

Smoking also creates an acidic coating around the meat which is quite tasty and gives the meat a unique appearance and texture.
