  • 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

Users with a dual band access point (2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz) will need to reference their router manual to ensure it is broadcasting in 2.4 GHz. SmartChef® technology supports WPA and WPA2 personal encryptions; WEP encryption is not supported. Learn more about getting started. Compatible with:

Digital Electric Smoker with SmartChef™ Technology is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product I bought the digital electric smoker with the wifi capability and have been horribly disappointed. The smoker will only operate with a wifi connection and then when a cook is initiated the smoker will start the wood chip starting cycle and at the end of the cycle if any connection is lost or the wrong button is pushed or if on your smart phone the program is accidently cancelled then the wood chip cycle must be restarted. The actual cooking program will not start until the wood chip burning process is complete. You must push the start button on the smoker after the wood chip starting cycle to begin the actual cooking program. The wood chip starting process usually takes an hour + to complete and then you need to be standing by the smoker to begin the cooking program. I have already ruined two different cuts of meat trying to get past the wood chip starting process. What a terrible program. DO NOT BUY.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Keeps Set Cabin Temperature This thing has not been fully tested. The major issue is the cabin temperature never keeps the set temperature. No matter what I set the cabin temperature, it always heats to 300 degrees. I bought 3 of these from different stores thinking I may of gotten a bad batch. I tested each by putting several temperature gauges inside the unit and each time the unit heats to 300 degrees. I also had customer service send me new unit temperature sensors to replace (hoping the unit one was broke) and still the same thing. Very frustrating!!!! Has anyone every gotten the cabin temperature to keep the set temperature?? Has anyone verifies this with temperature gauges inside the unit?? It's funny how the unit never tells you what the cabin temperature is. It only tells you the set temperature. That doesn't surprise me one bit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Live up the Hype I bought this product with great expectations and it has failed to deliver. As far as the actual does a great job Unfortunately getting to the smoking part is extremely frustrating. Currently the app does not work, after a preheat mode it sends errors messages and then eventually shuts off. Our Mothers Day ribs were ruined due to it shutting off and having to go through the preheat phase multiple times. The only way I can use this product now is to use the preset button, which defeats the purpose of spending the extra $100 for the wifi feature. Great idea and concept but lacks in execution.

I got this box for Christmas. It honestly is confusing me. You say that you use Clouds... So does it have to be Cloudy outside to use it??? God Bless and Stay Golden. 

Asked by: 76 year old male
Congratulations on your new smoker. The cloud is just a term referring to how the information is sent/received between the smoker and your smart phone. Please give us a call at 1-800-241-7548 for more information.

I just received a Model 15202043 Digital Electric Smoker with Smart Chef for Christmas from my wife. I have a few questions. 1. Should I soak the wood chips? 2. Do you make racks to hang home sausages?

Asked by: Stryker72
Congratulations on your new smoker! We do not recommend soaking the wood chips when using this smoker. Also, we do not make racks to hang sausages in this smoker at this time. We will be sure to pass this request forward.
