After four years, still rocking!
After four years and a few self made modifications, the Broil King Smoke Offset XL is my go to smoker for that authentic barbecue smoke flavor. Pork Butts, Ribs, Brisket, it can handle it all.
    Smoking Paradise
    I am two months into my ownership of my new pellet grill, and I absolutely love it. Bringing the taste of authentic barbeque food to my dinner table, is that Has brought new realm to the menu ideas for lunch and for dinner. It has a very large cooking space, the grills come out for easy cleaning, most importantly I think, it’s made and manufactured in a northern climate, so they know what we need to grill in Canada, and I can tell you I’m having a blast thank you Broil King
      Great offset smoker and bbq
      I have had the offset smoker for a couple of months now, and have smoked pork shoulder, brisket, ribs (many types), and also grilled steaks kebabs, burgers etc. My experience does not tally with some of the negative reviews on this site, but I can't deny people seem to have had issues with temperature. The unit appears to have been redesigned in a few areas, and all I can say is I had non of these issues. I had originally intended to get an Egg type smoker, but after doing some research found that they lacked some flexibility when wanted to do a large standard grill session with steaks etc. Some forums had people advocating getting an Egg and a standard BBQ, which seems mad to me. Up steps the offset smoker. You can slow cook and smoke any joints you like, then pull this off the grill and fire up the charcoal in the main chamber for the burgers and steaks. This flexibility makes the offset smoker great value, even at the price point of the Broil King. My experience with the Broil King Offset Smoker specifically: - Some assembly issues. The instructions didn't match the video or booklet. Broil King confirmed this was because of a redesign on some aspects of the unit. This was my one negative experience, but Broil King support were excellent and made it right. - The seals are fine. I mean they leak a little, but only when the input and output dampers are not configured correctly. I have smoked pork shoulders and got perfect smoke rings. - Temperature regulation is fine. Takes some practise but able to hold around 105c or up to 170c easily. You wouldn't want to go much out of this range for smoking anyway or else you would ruin whatever you are smoking. If you do then a small amount of charcoal in the cook box to the side would give it a boost. - Build quality is good, money seems to have been spent in the right areas, i.e. the dampers are well engineered, and the grills are high quality when seasoned a couple of times. - The damper between chambers has been removed in a redesign. Presumably this was a source of temperature issues. - Agree with previous reviews on the ash pan. This design could be improved to catch more of the ash. Tips: - When lighting the firebox for a smoke, follow the instructions which says to put unlit charcoal to the left of the firebox, and empty a lit chimney starter on the right. This means the charcoal burns right to left and the smoker can be left unattended and still maintain the correct temperature. I also put clusters of smoking chips at intervals meaning they will give a fresh injection of smoke at regular intervals. - The dampers are marked with 5 notches for amount of openness. Because of the clever way the dampers are engineered these notches represent a linear adjustment. If you want a higher temperature open the firebox and chimney dampers together. There is no point opening just the firebox damper if the air can't get through the whole smoker. - Resist opening the cook box lid, let the thermometer do the checking for you. Every time you open the lid you have to start again heating the cook box. - Only use the grills you need when cooking anything! If you leave in grills you aren't using you will have a lot of cleaning to do! - Once finished cooking, I clean the grills and brush with oil before opening all the dampers to raise the temperature. This re-seasons the grills between uses and can happen while you eat.
        Great smoker
        I bought this grill a month ago after replacing a grill I had for about 9 years. I've been cooking on this grill every weekend since. I really enjoyed smoking a whole chicken for the first time.
          Needs New Design
          I'm very happy with this smoker. Just a few issues I have found. 1) Needs a thicker gauge steel does not hold heat well. 2) The fuel consumption is very high do to there not being enough draft. 3) need to add a collector type smoke stack on the left. (which I'm modifying as I review) 4) Smoke stack should be higher as stated in a previous review. 5) would be nice to add a quality built charcoal box as an accessory. 6) the air intake vents should be at the bottom of the firebox door Not in the middle. 7) those dial type vents are not very good for air flow. You want the air to come in from bottom of firebox. No sense in blowing air across the top of charcoal. 8) Tuning plates and baffle plates should be an added accessory. I will do another review and add pictures after my modifications are done.

          Thanks for your review. We appreciate your feedback in regards to the design of the Broil King Smoke Offset Xl. We stand behind the superior quality of all OMC smokers, and would like to discuss these thoughts with you further. Please email us at info@omcbbq.com.
            Design Issues Galore
            July 2020 bought the offset XL smoker. Used 2x and it's collected dust since. Smoking: Offset does not pull heat through the cooking chamber evenly even with dampers open. Heat travels out and up and not through the cooking chamber for even heating. Place items near the offset vs. the exhaust and the temp varies greatly. Vents: Once they heat up, they start to expand and stick making adjustments challenging. Maybe it was the paint getting tacky as it's already flaked off. Charcoal Grilling - The metal trays used once and now are warped and don't sit flush in the channel. Offset charcoal - Don't try to use lump charcoal as when you fill it and once it burns down it all just falls through the grates in the offset and into the clean out tray. CleanOut - ROYAL PAIN. The collection box on both sides doesn't sit flush in the cooking chamber nor on the offset side. Any ashes fall into the gaps causing you to not only clean the trays but the actual cook box so the tray slides back in and doesn't rust. Then there's the drippings. Make sure you cook on a level surface. Any variation and all that grease runs into those same gaps and under the ash collector. Only way to get clean was to hose the entire grill out. Not an easy task to turn a grill on it's end for the water to drain. I have a drum smoker but wanted to try something different. Unfortunately made an impulse buy and so it sits.
              Will not seal
              Received this smoker as a gift and was excited to get it going. I know offsets could sometimes use a gasket to help seal it but this one will not seal. I placed a high quality gasket around both doors and smoke still comes out of certain areas. This makes temperature regulation tough. For the price this thing really should seal properly.

              Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear you’re experiencing operating difficulties with your Smoker XL. We stand behind the superior quality of all Broil King smokers. A buildup of smoke can possibly indicate that there is not enough clearance between the grill and where it is positioned, especially if placed against a fence or the side of a home. The appliance must be installed away from combustible surfaces by at least 76cm / 30inch from each side, and 76cm / 30inch from the rear. There must be 153cm / 60inch of space between the top of the appliance and any overhead construction. This will ensure optimal air flow when operating. Third party replacements may not be compatible with our units; we do recommend using genuine OMC replacement parts that are available directly through us. We would like to work with you regarding this matter, please give our customer support team a call at 1-800-265-2150 or email us at info@omcbbq.com
                A great offset smoker
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I actually won my smoker from a contest at Brady’s Butcher and Deli. I just love it. Smoking things is so pleasurable and relaxing.
                  Generic issues
                  Can't get the temperature go over ~140 Celsius. For even this temperatures the firebox door (cleaning door) needs to be wide open. If door is closed and the built in air regulators are used charcoal/wood does not get enough oxigen and starts (grey) smoking and temperature drops to 90-100°C.
                    Feature suggestions
                    Feature suggestions: 1. Make the chimney taller. The current one does not provide much of a draw. 2. Firebox screws -- need thicker screws. These will rust over time due to extreme heat and outdoor use. The whole firebox rests on 6 screws. 3. baffle -- one of the smoke diffusers should bend upward to act as a baffle plate. 4. cleanout -- the firebox and cookbox side door should be cut to the bottom with no ledge to aid sweeping of ashes. The provided ash tray won't catch everything. Ash accelerates rusting and needs to be cleaned out regularly.
