PlaceholderLarge black cabinet with sloped front consisting of two doors. It is mounted on four legs with two wheels A box is attached on the left and a shelf on the right.
Englander's 21-PG100 Pellet Smoker was designed in conjunction with Fast Eddie Maurin, whose award winning pellet smokers are well known on the competition circuit. Indeed the PG100 has many similarities to Fast Eddy's PG500. Unlike most pellet smokers that are indirect BBQ ovens, both the PG100 and PG500 have one direct and two indirect cooking zones. The direct zone on the left is an... Read More
PlaceholderVery large shiny metal cube on a black metal frame with wheels. Two open doors reveal a collection of racks inside.
The FEC500 is a big commercial/competition grade pellet smoker, the second largest in Fast Eddy's catalog. This 100% wood burning, pellet fired rotisserie smoker cooks 500 lbs. pork butts (hence the FEC500 name), 450 lbs. brisket, 150 lbs. ribs or 70 whole chickens fully loaded. 100% stainless steel inside and out, the double wall smoke box has 850° F Spin-Glas™ insulation. The carousel... Read More
PlaceholderPewter colored 55 gallon upright drum smoker with lid removed and hanging from the side.
The first thing one may notice about Gateway Drum Smokers is the colorful, high-heat resistant paint. The second thing is the unusual air control system which consists of two intake pipes welded to the bottom of the drum to feed air into the firebox. Each pipe curves upward, terminating just below the upper rim of the drum, and each has an adjustable damper at the top. There is a small... Read More
PlaceholderOrange upright cabinet smoker with both doors swung open to the left and racks and trays sliding out from the inside.
Humphrey's BBQ Battle Box was their first smoker. This mid-size, charcoal vertical cabinet cooker is gaining popularity for home and competition use. Although crafted from heavy steel and 1200° insulation with locking latches that clamp the firebox and smokebox doors shut, it is not air tight and leaks smoke in certain areas by design. A two inch ball valve regulates air intake and... Read More
PlaceholderVery large black cubical structure with two front doors open to show a collection of shiny metal racks inside.
This large capacity, thermostatically controlled, wood-fired smoker is J&R's bestselling model. J&R produces a line of wood fired cookers that are popular throughout the USA and exported to 31 countries. Interior of the heavily insulated cookbox is stainless steel. Large front doors facilitate easy load and unload, and removal of racks for cleaning. Eighteen 17" x 42" cooking... Read More
PlaceholderBlack upright cabinet with a shiny steel handle on the front door A round gauge is mounted at the top of the door.
Landmann's Smoky Mountain 26" Electric Smoker is a bare bones, steel box with a heating element on the bottom. Some electrics in this general price range have digital thermostatic control. This can be a blessing or curse at these low price points. While we love digital control which allows you to set a specific temp and rely on the controller to maintain it, inexpensive components are... Read More
PlaceholderUpright cabinet smoker with a black body and a shiny steel door and drawer in front. The door has a window showing racks inside. The drawer is pulled out. An electric control panel is located t the top.
The Smoky Mountain 40" Electric Smoker is Landmann's top of the line electric model. This large steel smoker with a viewing window in the door is 40.5" x 24.25" x 22.25" with five chrome plated cooking  racks. The 1200 Watt heating element promises a temperature range of 100° to 275°. The digital LED display controller enables you to set both temp and time, and an integrated meat... Read More
PlaceholderVery large cubical shiny steel structure mounted on a black metal frame with four wheels. Two doors in the front are closed.
The Ole Hickory EL-ED/X End Loader Extra Wide model is one of their most popular commercial smokers because the 18" x 48" racks on this mid-size unit allows ribs to be loaded front to back and maximize yield. Ole Hickory offers what they consider a conservative and realistic way to estimate capacity: one square foot of cook surface for one slab of ribs or one pork butt, (recently... Read More
PlaceholderLarge shiny steel box on a red metal frame with wheels. A large hunk of meat on a spit is cooking on the box. A man and woman stand behind smiling. A wood wall is in the background.
The PigOut Roaster POR 48 is their smallest all in one cooker for large capacity events and handles up to a 70 pound pig or lamb. This is a really clever design. Built in Canada, this ingenious stainless steel propane fired device has a motorized rotisserie for hogs and lambs that can also be used to hold optional shelves, ferris wheel style, for cooking other foods like chicken, BBQ...

PlaceholderHOrizontal barrel smoker with a shiny steel hood mounted on a black frame with four wheels. A black box with a shiny steel discs and wood handle is attached to the barrel bottom.
Although Pitt's & Spitt's Combo 18" X 30" Smoker Pit is one of their smallest models, with 810 square inches of cooking surface it's large for residential use. We like residential BBQ offset smokers with the firebox underneath rather than on the side because heat naturally travels upward, not sideways. While this is not always desirable for catering and competition where different... Read More

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
