Ridiculous cooking gadget

The most awesomely ridiculous cooking gadget I've come across this week is....

The Smoking Gun!

It's used to blast flavoured smoke at food after it's cooked (or not cooked, in the case of carpaccio or sashimi or whatever). Richard Blais of Top Chef fame apparently likes to create 'chicken smoke' using dehydrated chicken skin, and blast that onto meat cooked sous vide.

I love reading about this preposterous chef gadgets, but I think it's a bit above my level to be dabbling in this stuff. Although the anti-griddle is tempting...
