Are you looking to combine the bold flavor of a smoker with the ease of use of a gas grill? A vertical propane smoker may be just what you’re looking for. Vertical propane smokers work much like a wood or charcoal smoker replacing the heat source with a propane burner. A tray for wood chunks or chips is placed above the burner to provide the smoky flavor and a water pan sits above that to keep the air inside the smoker moist.
Why use a Vertical Propane Smoker?
There are a number of benefits to using a vertical propane smoker:
- Affordability. A high-quality smoker can be purchased for less than $200.
- Portability. This smoker is just 46 inches tall and weighs only 53 pounds. With nothing to plug in, you can take it camping, to tailgate parties or to a friend’s barbecue with ease.
- Efficiency. Gas smokers burn cleanly, reducing carbon footprint on the environment — and your food.
- Ease of use. Vertical propane smokers are low-maintenance and require less attention than smokers of the wood or charcoal variety. Many even come with a push-button ignition.
