  • How Does SmartChef® Technology Work?

    Unlike bluetooth smokers, you're no longer tethered to your cooker. SmartChef® technology utilizes The Cloud to wirelessly exchange information between your smoker and your smart device, allowing users to monitor their smoker from anywhere with a data connection.

    • First, your smart device sends info through “The Cloud" to your smoker
    • Then the smoker sends info back through "The Cloud” to your smart device so you can see cooking status from anywhere

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new smoker I received my new digital electric smoker 2 weeks ago and so far have smoked brisket as well as pork but in there. The brisket tasted amazing and after setting the smoker up and picking the right temperature I was able to not worry about the cooking time or anything else. Really love the new technology

Can you explain why the smoker cooks at a preset 300 degrees? I know some people like to smoke things at a lower temperature. Also, will Charbroil continiue to support and update the app in the future?
