How long should you smoke in the Otto smoker?


Smoking is a hot & trendy! Of course we are talking about smoking ingredients. The best way to smoke ingredients is with a high-quality smoker. Barbecook offers two completely different models that allow you to conjure up deliciously smoked dishes: the Oskar and the Otto.

With this smoker, which is also available in 2 different sizes (Oskar S and Oskar M), you can smoke both hot and cold. The Otto, on the other hand, is an electric smoker with which you can only smoke your ingredients hot. In this article, we'll take a closer look at the numerous possibilities and smoking times of Barbecook's incredible Otto smoker!  

Specifications and use of the Otto smoker

The Otto is a cylindrical model and has a silver look. This electric smoker stands on four legs and has two practical wooden handles, for an extra safe and efficient use. The Otto smoker is extremely user-friendly, which is why it is so popular with many smoke enthusiasts. All you need are smoke chips and some ingredients, for example a good piece of fish. Depending on the ingredients to be smoked, you choose a particular flavor of smoke chips. For fish, for example, these could be lemon smoke chips. The amount of smoke chips you need depends on how long the food needs to be smoked. The rule of thumb is to use a handful of chips for every fifteen minutes of the smoking time. The chips are placed in the chip tray of your Otto smoker. You slide the tray into the smoker just above the heating element. Then, you can also slide the drip tray and the grid with the fish into the Otto Smoker. Try to leave enough space between each piece of fish to allow the smoke to circulate around the ingredients in your Otto smoker. Once you've completed these steps, close the lid, plug the smoker into the socket and start smoking! Now all that's left is to ask the big question: how long should the fish or any other ingredients be left in the Otto Smoker? Find out below!
