    Ironic indeed.

    As to the gas burning causing a ring, I might suggest that a gas fired smoke house or smoker is not as airtight as a gas oven. As a result there would be a good deal more post combustion gas released when cooking with them than there would be in a gas oven.

    the author doesn't say that cooking in a gas fired cooker does can a ring, he merely states that it can.

    I would be willing to bet that if you cooked some pork in a gas fired smoker such as a GOSM w/o any wood at all that there would be at least a slight amount of pink showing, but I wouldn't bet much.

    I believe that the smoke ring is caused by the myoglobin (or whatever that stuff is). However, I also believe that in order for the smoke ring to occur, you need to produce the heat with a fossil fuel (charcoal, wood). The Bradley is an electric smoker which uses wood bisquettes. However, because the primary source of heat is electric, there is no pink ring that is produced with the meat even though there is wood that is producing a smoke. Now, if it were simply a myoglobin (or whatever that stuff is) reaction, I believe you would see the ring in a Bradley or a gas oven. One can try to simulate the ring with some cure but that's not a true ring, IMO. Interesting reading on the subject.
