Charcoal Smoker is rated 1.875 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Smoker after modifications The smoker is well built and sturdy, with the exception of the smoke chamber door latch that popped off the first time I used it. The solid charcoal pan is also a problem, as it doesn't allow for a good air flow to achieve a good burning coal fire to smoke wood chips with. I found a square porcelain coated steel "wok" that fit the guide rails perfectly to use as a charcoal pan, and that allowed for a much better fire and cooking temperature to be achieved and better smoke production. The "wok" was for grilling seafood and vegetables, so it was made full of holes for plenty of heat (air) flow, which is just what this smoker needed. One thing that you will need to do if you keep it outside, is to get a cover for it, as it will rust out rather quickly if you leave it to the weather uncovered. Other than those issues, this smoker will let you make some terrific food, we have had some fantastic smoked turkeys, ribs, prime rib roasts, chickens, meatloafs, steaks, corn, pork tenderloins, you name it and I've probably smoked it in this smoker. I like to use cider in the water pan along with some other spices and seasonings depending on what I'm smoking. This opens an avenue of experimentation for you if you like to try different things with food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a beginner! I bought this smoker this weekend and smoked for the first time. I smoked 3 full racks of ribs, and tenderloin. The smoker held temp really well and the doors made it very easy to work with the food and the charcoal separately without losing too much heat. I would absolutely recommend this to someone looking to smoke for the first time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY SMALL SMOKER BOX MEASURES height 31 inch dep It’s tiny, looks like a toy. I can’t even fit full slab of ribs and had to cut in half. The comment from the manufacturer and descriptions on measurement stated 50.75" x 21.5" x 39". BUT SMOKER BOX ACTUALLY MEASURES height 31 inch depth 15 inch width 16 inch

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely terrible at maintaining temp This was bought as an entry level smoker, and I have had a terrible time maintaining a temp any higher than 125 on it for the 2 years I have owned it. It doesn't matter what I do I eventually have to finish off the meat in my boyfriends propane smoker (which to me is a true pity). It does not maintain a steady temp, the top door has warped and I have taken excellent care of it. I feel it was an utter waste of money and that I would not recommend to anyone that has an interest. It is such a fail that they would get turned off by the process before truly learning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good is good: the bad is very bad. I bought this smoker 3 weeks ago. Week 1 I cooked two racks of ribs.they came out delicious but the arm that holds the water pan broke at the weld. I figured oh well freak defect. The next week I smoked an 18lb turkey. Took a little longer than expected but it came out delicious. However the slider support in which you slide the food rack into broke at the weld also. Now I know you get what you pay for but these are manufacturer defects. Any item should not break after two normal uses. I know that the cost to replace these items is approximately $20 but if something breaks again I could have bought the next smoker in quality up. I am sorry, the food cooked well but I can't recommend anything of inferior build/quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I just purchased this smoker. The entire inside is coated with a greasy substance. Is this a factory coating or did Walmart sell me a used unit ? The protective brown paper is greasy and it smells !

I want to smoke a 20 - 25 lb turkey, can I do it with  this smoker, realistically?

Asked by: vittdev
For the best results with cooking a turkey this size we recommend using the Big Easy Smoker Roaster & Grill. Please take a look at model # 14101550 on our site.

I purchased the Charcoal Smoker about 6 months ago. It allows way too much air in through the doors and such.  I can completely shut every vent, and it still burns too hot and too fast. What can I do to reduce airflow through the doors?

I can't get the temp over 200 any suggestions?

Asked by: Steel city
We're sorry to hear this. If the Big Easy is turned on or off incorrectly it can cause the safety device in the regulator to trip. This will cause a low flow and the regulator will need to be reset. This is an easy procedure that involves unhooking the regulator from the propane tank for a minute and then reattaching and following the lighting instructions on your grill. Make sure that when your Big Easy is turned off that the Big Easy is shut off first and then the propane tank. Please give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 for more information.

I have a composite deck.  Will this smoker get to hot to use on the deck?

Asked by: tmctools
I have this smoker, and have used it frequently and have never had a problem with the legs getting hot or even warm. However if you wanted to be extra safe or careful, you could use a mat or patio pavers under the smoker for extra caution if you wanted, as there could always be the possibility of a hot coal(s) getting away on occasion, which could mar your deck.
