They Provide Powerful Nutrients

Fish and other meats are rich in amino acids and protein. Smoking these foods locks in nutrients providing delicious and nutritious foods. They act as a good addition to a balanced diet. Smoking fish makes it retain fatty acids such as omega-3, which help prevent heart-related diseases, while smoked meat contains iron that would otherwise be lost when frying or boiling.

Low Fat Content

The smoking process eliminates the need for oils and serves as a great way of avoiding extra fat. It helps remove fat from meat as it lets the melted fat render and drip out, lowering the fat content while also saturating with flavor! In addition, smoking meats and vegetables give them a pleasing aroma and adds rich flavor.

Preserving the Food

Smoking vegetables and meat has been used for a long time as a method of preservation. Why is that important for a food truck? It means that generations of chefs have developed and perfected the method of smoking meats and vegetables, fine-tuning the process to get the best, most delicious results. While smoking meat and veggies is a great preservative, believe us - you won’t have any leftovers when you dig into these bowls!

Enhancing Flavor

Smoking vegetables and meat adds an intense flavor profile to them that you just can’t get from other cooking methods. In addition to that, the fuel used to create the smoke can imbue meats and vegetables with pleasing, appetizing characteristics that are impossible from grilling or frying.
