Meadow Creek BX50 Box Smoker Review

Share on:
Meadow Creek BX50 Smoker

Solid and super insulated with a gravity fed water system, Meadow Creek’s reputation for thoughtful design coupled with quality construction and craftsmanship are on full display with the BX50 Box Smoker. A unique feature is the water replenishment system: a five gallon jug mounted to the left of the cabinet that feeds a removable water pan located above the coal. “Box” or Cabinet smokers provide good capacity with a small footprint, making them popular for residential, competition and commercial use.

The BX50 features 13 gauge double wall steel with 1 inch insulation. Smokebox and firebox doors are sealed with insulating strips and locking latches. A removable grease pan lines the bottom of the smoke box and four 18″ x 22″ stainless steel cooking racks come standard. Smokebox height allows for six inch spacing between the four grates. Additional grates are available.

The slide out ash pan/firebox holds 20 lbs. of charcoal said to last 8 hours at 225⁰F. Two dampers at the firebox bottom flank a built in BBQ Guru adapter. This 625 pound cooker rolls on two large rubber wheels and two locking casters. BX50 is black, but you can choose red, green or blue for $200 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.
