This recipe uses a stovetop smoker with 1 1/2 tablespoons of hickory wood chips. NOTE on cooking times: Place the smoker on the stovetop with the lid slightly open. When the first hint of smoke appears, close the lid and start cooking time. FYI: The temperature inside the smoker is about the same as a 375 F oven. Smoke time is an estimate due to the differing stovetops. Ceramic tops must add 20% cook time, for example. Assure your smoker is sealed properly and increase time appropriately, but refrain from raising the temperature.
