The electric smoker is a very convenient steaming machine that can be used to prepare sumptuous sauces and meals. If you are looking for delicacies to prepare with the best electric smoker, we have you covered. These 3 delicious sauces can add to your list of recipes you can prepare for your family or friends during celebrations and other events. They are very easy to prepare and don’t require many ingredients.
Peri-peri chicken sauce
The first recipe on the list can be done using a Masterbuilt smoker or any other electric smoker you have. You can add some wood chips to improve the overall flavor of the sauce.
Begin by brining the chicken and getting it ready a night before you prepare the meal. It takes about 1½ hours to completely get the sauce ready to be served. Generally, this sauce is steamed with Bird’s eye pepper and requires other additional ingredients like tarragon, oregano, basil, pimiento, paprika, bay leaves, lemon juice, salt, pepper, onion, as well as citrus peel. If you can’t get all of these, just use the most important seasoning items and your meal will still be okay.
Ingredients for brine
- Brown sugar (1/2 cup)
- A cup of kosher salt
- A gallon of water
Ingredients for the chicken
- Chopped parsley (optional ingredient)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 5 ounces of peri-peri sauce
- About 3 chicken breast (boneless)
- Use a big pot to mix all the ingredients for the brine until sugar and salt is properly dissolved
- Add chicken to mixed brine and store in your refrigerator till morning
- In the morning, take out the chicken and dry off water using a paper towel
- Use your electric smoker to heat at about 250 degrees. Then add sassafras as well as wood chips to the mixture. This is when you have to keep the chicken in the bowl of the electric smoker
- As you are smoking the chicken, add honey and a moderate quantity of peri peri sauce into a bowl and mix properly.
- When the chicken reaches about 155 degrees, sprinkle the peri-peri sauce on the chicken and allow it to steam for few minutes. Then turn the other side of the chicken and apply the same quantity of peri-peri sauce.
- After the sauce has dissolved into the chicken and the temperature of the electric smoker has reached about 156 degrees, you can now bring it out to be served.
Remember that the cook time is less important than the internal temperature, so you have to monitor that to produce the best result.
Bologna is also very easy to prepare with the electric smoker and doesn’t require many ingredients either.
