Stovetop smokers available in Boston?

I'm thinking to purchase a stovetop smoker and would like to avoid mail-ordering it. Has anyone seen one in a shop around Boston? Thanks!

  1. Sur La Table has one in their online catalog. They may also have it in store. They have a few locations in the suburbs.

    1. Try calling TAGS in Porter Square; I think I saw them there.

      1. Why not use a foil-salt-and-wood-lined pan with a cooling rack over it? You'll need a vented hood, but it works well for fish. I presume you're not doing bacon.

          Why would you presume that? I am planning to do a few things, including bacon.

            OK, after reading up on it, I see why you said that. Sounds like the stovetop smoker may not have the smoke output needed for bacon, though I have heard some folks say that they achieved good results that way. Hmm.

        2. I found a cast iron indoor smoker at Williams Sonoma.... a bit after Christmas and it was back on a "clearance" table. $17 later, it was mine! They might still sell this model. All I remember is that the box said 5-in-1.
