The name Weber® is synonymous with outdoor grilling, starting with Weber's renowned kettle charcoal grills. As grilling has become more popular and gourmet-oriented, Weber has remained at the forefront of modern grilling design, construction and results. That includes a family of Weber wood smokers that capture its legendary quality.
Weber's wood and charcoal-fired smokers are built to smoke food that has the texture and moisture demanded by BBQ professionals. Weber Smokey Mountain cookers™ are porcelain-enameled cylinders with dome tops, kettle bottoms and dampers mounted at both ends. This set up lets the smoke circulate effectively around foods and maintains temperature throughout the smoking process. The charcoal or hardwood burn in these Weber smokers is slow and consistent, so the fire bed doesn't need the constant attention required by other smokers. Two plated-steel cooking grates provide plenty of room for smoking large cuts of meat. The water pan on Weber wood smokers hangs just below the bottom rack to maintain direct moisture, and it can be replenished easily during the smoke through the fuel door.
Durability is just as important as design. All Weber smokers have rust-resistant aluminum fuel doors and dampers. The water pan and charcoal bed are coated in porcelain enameling, as is the inner smoking chamber. The temperature gauge, center mounted on the dome lid, is encased with a silicone grommet, so the face doesn't get browned out by smoke. These Weber Smokey Mountain cookers are built to clean up well, to function like they're supposed to each time and to keep working a long time.
As with all Weber grill lines, Weber smokers come in different-sized cooking surfaces to accommodate small groups, large families or party-size gatherings. Weber also offers a vast array of high-quality cooking tools, utensils and accessories to make the grilling or smoking process even more convenient. They include digital thermometers and probes, gourmet BBQ racks, baskets and griddle inserts, and seasonings and sauces, in addition to brushes, spatulas and forks.
There's nothing quite liked the taste of smoked food, even though it does take time. Weber smokers make this process as simple and easy as it gets, with results rivaling the professionals. If Weber can do this with the art of smoking, imagine what its entire line of charcoal, electric, natural-gas and propane grills can do out on the backyard patio or deck.
