BBQ Smokers: The Secret to Better Barbecue
A BBQ smoker is much more than just a another grill by another name. Grilling is all about the heat, with smoke merely a flavoring byproduct. The smoking process is different. Our selections are designed to maintain a lower cooking temperature (usually 200 to 250 degrees or less) over a much longer period of time, i.e. hours rather than minutes. Meats undergo a long, slow cooking process, retaining moisture as they're flavored by the surrounding smoke. The result is incredibly tender and flavorful barbecue.
Basic Smoker Types
Vertical: Low cost and easy to use, this is the most popular option for beginners. The heat rises from the unit's bottom to pass through a water bowl, infused with moisture, this hot air makes for tender, meaty vittles. The small size and efficient shape of vertical models is offset by their limited capacity, but this is a good choice for backyard family BBQs.
Offset: These models consist of a primary cooking chamber and a side firebox for indirect heat smoking. Most designs of this kind are combination charcoal grills and smokers. Heat and smoke from the side box pass through the grill and out through the "chimney" or smoke stack. This design offers much more cooking space than vertical models.
Box: This square, cabinet-like design stands on four splayed legs. Some models feature two bottom drawers for easy access to the water pan and wood chip box without letting heat escape. A box combines the larger capacity of an offset design with the temperature-efficient design of vertical models.
Smoker oven: These are essentially outdoor ovens, capable of smoking meat, baking pizza, and more.
Choose Your Fuel Source
Our selections are grouped into three main categories: charcoal, electric, and propane.
Charcoal varieties are our best-selling models, thanks to the convenience of grill combos and easy-to-use vertical Brinkmann smokers.
Charcoal may be more traditional, but electric designs offer outstanding temperature control. Add wood chips to the box for classic BBQ taste.
Most of our box designs are propane fueled by LP tanks, with the convenience of push-button ignition systems.
Once you've settled on a model, don't forget to add accessories for protection and performance, including protective covers to keep off rain. Expand your smoking repertoire with jerky racks or an add-on kit that converts to a rotisserie.
