Holy Smokes: A Smokin’ Hot Gift Idea from Breville for Father’s Day

Breville Smoking Gun

What It Is: The latest gastronomic trend sweeping the nation happens to be one that’ll be right up dad’s alley: smoke. If you’ve ever had a low and slow-cooked piece of meat over charcoal, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Only, Breville has seriously streamlined the process with their new Smoking Gun. Using the included wood chips (or ones you buy your own), you can infuse everything from meat and fish to veggies and sauces to even more exotic fare like desserts and cocktails with a natural smoke flavour.

Want some inspo and insight? Breville has created a pretty impressive microsite that highlights how it works and a bevy of recipes for everything from smoked cheese to smoked popcorn. It couldn’t be simpler – or more delightful to experiment with. Let Dad indulge his inner master chef and be prepared to reap the tasty benefits! Yum!

Who It’s For: Your grillmaster dad, to take his meals to the next level. Any wannabe chef in the family, to concoct some smokey heavenly dishes. Your gadget-loving sibling, to make your next cocktail night a special one.

What It Costs: $129.99 – a perfect price point for Father’s Day, and a really moderate one by Breville’s high quality standards!
