Not sure what we mean by a smoking gun?

The smoking gun is a tool which offers a handheld alternative to traditional smoking methods. The cold smoke is easy to direct with the smoking tube and can be added at any stage of a dish. With the smoking gun, it’s easy to control the intensity of the smoke flavour you’re adding.
