Changing a couple dishes around on my current menu because I have so many wonderful foraged items...And I just had to do something smokey. Today I used my polyscience smoking gun to applewood smoke watermelon. I loaded the chamber once until it burnt out and the watermelon, which I had sliced in 1 inch slices was perfect. The flavor was like watermelon bacon. I ate one slice and rest I wrapped and put in the refrigerator to see how long the smoke flavor will take. I like to experiment. The person who taught me to experiment was my mother. Anytime I asked her a question about technique or prepartion that she could not answer she always said, "I don't know Lanie, you have to try it, experiment."
