Grilling Wood Capsules

The Smoke Pucks Infuse Foods with Smoky Flavor During Barbecuing

— June 6, 2017 — Lifestyle
The Smoke Pucks are intended to be used on the barbecue to effectively infuse your favorite foods with a distinctly smoky flavor. To use the devices, you begin by filling each puck with your favorite kinds of wood chips or wood pellets and then placing the pucks directly on the BBQ grill. This allows the heat from the grill to activate the pucks and release their essence into the atmosphere around them.

The Smoke Pucks are crafted from stainless steel and can be used over and over again thanks to the top lid that pops off to have additional wood pieces added in as needed. The devices don't require wood that's placed within to be presoaked, which makes it an ideal way to quickly get cooking without all the prep work.
Trend Themes
1. Reusable Wood Infusers - Create opportunities for innovative food flavorings by developing reusable wood infusers that can add a smoky flavor to various dishes during cooking.
2. Convenient Flavor Enhancement - Address the need for quick and easy flavor enhancement by designing products like the Smoke Pucks that allow users to infuse foods with a smoky taste without the need for presoaking wood chips.
3. Sustainable Barbecue Accessories - Tap into the growing demand for eco-friendly solutions by exploring the development of sustainable barbecue accessories like the stainless steel Smoke Pucks that can be used repeatedly.
Industry Implications
1. Food and Beverage - Food and beverage companies can explore innovative techniques and products to enhance flavors and cater to consumers who enjoy smoky flavor infusions in their dishes.
2. Kitchen and Cooking - The kitchen and cooking industry can benefit from disruptive innovation opportunities by creating new tools and devices that simplify the process of infusing smoky flavors into foods during cooking.
3. Sustainable Products - Sustainable product manufacturers can tap into the barbecue accessories market by developing reusable and eco-friendly solutions like the stainless steel Smoke Pucks.
