Like on a standard grill, the meat is placed over the heat source, but this works like a smoker because it traps the smoke produced by the coal/wood. This method allows the juices to drip directly onto the fire source, infusing the meat with its natural smoky flavors. The moisture is contained within the unit, which eliminates the use of a water pan and produces incredible results. Finally, this method is faster than that of a standard smoker, and the food can be cooked to the exact preferred level of doneness.
Set it and forget it! Who wants to stand in front of the smoker all day while the family and friends are enjoying themselves? Get the unit up to temperature and leave it. It's that simple.
Because our barbecue smokers are hand-built, we require 2 weeks build time for completion. We want to produce the best possible product at the best price.
The motor city vertical smokers are set up to give outstanding mileage on a small amount of fuel. Fill the fire basket half way for a 4–6 hour cook, or fill the basket for an
8–10 hour cook. No refills necessary.
Our barbecue smokers are self-contained, meaning there is no need for a water bowl because the moisture stays within, and are a 100% percent temperature controlled.
To clean your barbecue smoker, wait until the barrel and fire basket have cooled completely, then remove the fire basket and dump the remaining ash. Use a paper towel to wipe the inside bottom of the unit.
DO NOT WASH OR RINSE THE INSIDE OF YOUR BARBECUE SMOKER WITH WATER!
