Meanwhile, at La Caja China, we have our smoke pistol to do the trick!


What is a smoke pistol?


The La Caja China smoke pistol is an accessory that we attach to our barbecue grill in order to give our grilled treats a smoky flavor. You can easily mount it in your roasting box simply by creating a hole that measures 9/16 and inserting the mouth of the smoke pistol through there. To secure the connection, it will be kept in place with a ramrod barrel. The smoke pistol will smoke your food easily and professionally without breaking a sweat.
