Join our seven week QST Smokehouse series
Over the next seven weeks, John R. White will be featuring tips, facts and guidance from QST Smoke Flavors to help inform, educate and highlight important considerations during the smoking processes. We hope you find this helpful.
#1 Use the Right Smoke
The best tip to ensure uniform smoke color of atomized liquid smoke is to use the correct product. Liquid smoke is usually designed for only one application method. Using the wrong smoke product for atomization can hinder the ability to get the correct product color and flavor.
USing the right product at the right time
Using a highly concentrated smoke for atomization will help minimize the time spent in the atomization step in your smoke cycle. Shortening the atomization step can increase throughput and minimize yield loss. Trials conducted show that the use of a highly concentrated atomization smoke such as QST’s Smoke Flavors Prime+ can decrease the smoking step by 20-25% over other less concentrated products. This could relate to an extra house of sausage cooked every day, or a 10% increase in your bacon throughput.
