Showering / drenching
Another form of application to smoke meat is the showering/drenching process. That is a process becoming increasingly popular due to the limited time the meat products need to be in contact with the smoke flavouring. Large volumes of meat can be processed in a shorter time compared to the atomizing process, and it is the preferred application method if the meat manufacturer is processing few products with large volumes.
Flavourstream is having a range of high quality products for this application, and we are ready to guide our customers to select the most suitable product. We can also tailor-make a product adjusting the colour and flavour so it fits exactly any specific needs. We have been working with this process for many years, and we can guide through parameters like dilution rate of the smoke flavouring, temperature of the bath, "adding back" amount per hour, acid level for optimal skin formation and finally the drying cooking/steps afterwards.
Showering/drenching methods give opportunity to recycle the smoke flavouring, and since it has been applied before the cooking chamber the cleaning costs for this are minimal.
