Very Good GRiller and Smoker. I use this for making Bar-B-Que. I use Pork, Boston Butt. It tastes as good as the best. Good for smoking Turkey. Smoke them about two hours and finish them in the oven where most people cook turkeys. GOOD smoked Turkeys. Try it! The grill is large, very large. It works good too.
First time smoker. Have years of experience on grill but none on smoking. Read several websites on a staurday and decided to go with this offset model. Using lump charcoal and hickory chunk wood unsoaked, we had an awesome first smoke on this grill. Quickly figured out the temp management and cant wait until I have time to fire it up again!
Awesome grill, tastes like the pros. This grill is just what the Dr. ordered. I have been a Weber charcoal fan for years, but I made the step up to wood-fire. We have black oak in NorCal and that is some amazing taste! Great heat and with the separate firebox I can get the perfect mix of slow-cooking heat and smoke.
A+ Buy this Grill and enjoy. Very large grilling area. You could smoke a whole cow. I smoked a Butt, Brisket, and 2 Chickens the first time out and only used half the grilling surface. The temp was a little hard to control, the main area was hard to get up to the temp I wanted but made a few adjustments and got it to where I wanted it. I suggest filling all the extra holes for attachments that are not used with nuts and bolts to make controlling the Temp easier. Clean up was easy and fast. The meat itself was very tender and tasty and after a few more times I will have worked all the kinks out and expect the meat will be just the way I want it. It was really close the very first time. Used a lot of wood chips due to the extreme heat in the firebox and would advise large chunks of wood. All in all a great purchase for my needs. The 70 people at my office that I treated had no complaints!
Excellent Grill/Smoker. I live in the Caribbean, so use the grill year round and often. I've had the Smoker Pro for 5 yrs. now, and it is not rusted. Take good care of the CI grates by oiling them (vegetable oil works fine) after cleaning. Smoker box has a small cooking grate and can be used if you only have to grill for 1-2 people. The larger grill is divided into 4 removable grates, so using 1/2 the grill, and loading more charcoal is very easy to do. Dumping the ashes from the main grill and the side box is a snap, as the charcoal bases are removable. Smoking is easy, and heat control is also fairly simple. Highly recommed this grill. 5 yrs. ago I paid $200.00 new, and though it wouldn't last, because it was inexpensive; [...]assemble this.
Great Little Secret. This little grill will surprise you with the great flavor your meat will taste like you went to your local steak restaurant. For the average user you can't miss you'll want to grill again and again. However, the drawback is; most people do not like waiting on charcoal to get going. The average user would rather have a $600.00 stainless steel gas burner grill that never really cures in due time. Why waste a good piece of meat to GAS!.. Cave men had no gas. The Iron grates will cure as you grill also, the iron grates sear your meat, cooks evenly so that most of the entire flavor comes from your fire. If you love the way your meat tastes, try fruit and vegies on the grill. Yes, I did say, FRUIT! My husband and I are great fans of the fire we grill & smoke often (every week) should I just say, year round. The only time we use gas is for our gas heater to keep us warm as we grill or smoke meat during the winter. So get your stainless steel gas grill out, clean it up place it on Craig's list to sell. Now buy your new Char Griller, you'll still have money left over to buy a great hunk of meat. Once you decide to use fire you'll wonder, "What was up with the gas thing any way?"...
