A DIY version of the "smoking gun"

lamb_da_calculus | Jan 6, 2014 12:28 PM

I've been looking at some recipes that call for a smoking "gun" ( to smoke foods quickly. Since I don't like buying unnecessary items, does anyone know if the effect could be replicated by just, say, tenting smoldering applewood shavings with aluminum foil, puncturing the foil and collecting the smoke in an overturned tumbler, and then quickly transferring that tumbler (still full of smoke!) to cover the item to be smoked?

For a video demonstration of what I'm trying to explain, see this video around 2:20 -
