how long does a propane tank last on average or would it be better to have an electric smoker for home use
Asked by: woody
Electric is probably easier if you have an outlet nearby, but I get better smoke flavor with this propane smoker. Smoked twice on a partial tank, and still not empty. Haven't emptied one yet. The electric ones are typically insulated, so you used less energy, but produce less smoke.

Is the door and /or side walls insulated or all just the single thin layer of metal? Thanks.

Is the door and /or side walls insulated or all just the single thin layer of metal? Thanks.
Asked by: Bubba
No insulation on the box or door but it seems to hold the heat and smoke nicely. Sips at the propane so I don't think it would benefit much with insulation.

Smoke Vault 18 in. Propane Gas Smoker is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser
Date published: 2019-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cold weather climates I researched smokers for several months and this was definitely the right choice for living in upstate NY. This smoker has the capability to get hot enough in cold weather. A lesson I learned while smoking a turkey last Thanksgiving when it was in the 20's and my electric smoker could only get up to 175. The heat adjustment is sensitive but manageable. The only thing I wish it had was more shelves out of the box. However, you can buy them separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Smoker I did A LOT of research before I purchased this smoker! The Achilles heel of the electric smokers seems to be the element, so I decided to bypass that completely and go with the propane burner which, in my experience, very rarely break or have problems. Another weakness of the electrics is getting them hot enough in the winter. When the burner on this thing is cranked, even on a cold day, I can easily get it to 400 degrees, not that many smoking situations call for that! It seems to be very well insulated. However, if the wind is blowing fairly hard (as it does in Oregon in December) it can play havoc with keeping the temps stable. Be prepared to build some kind of windbreak to keep the flame from being blown around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smoker I have had mine about a year. Easy to assemble and easy to use. Grest for smoking deer and I made the best turkey I have ever cooked.(including frying one) Only issue was the thermometer. It was off by several degrees. Had to get a dual thermometer. Once I figured out how to adjust the controls, it does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have been looking at different smokers for about a year, and since I am a beginner I decided to go with propane fired for ease of use. This smoker has recieved high ratings from numerous sites I visited, and when I caught it on sale at HD it was a done deal. I had the day off when this baby arrived and I was giddy like a little boy as I tore open the box and began the setup. The setup was fairly easy and took approximately 30-45 minutes. After seasoning my smoker I couldn't wait to use it the first time. I have only owned this thing for 30 days and have put it to good use, we have done lake trout, jerky, whole chickens, pork butt, and ribs. One of two negatives I have so far is when I did the ribs, the cabinet is not quite wide enough to fit a whole rack of baby backs so I had to cut them in half, which is not a huge deal since we won't be doing ribs all that often. I could not believe how easy it was to control the temperature on this thing, once the smoker and water pan are up to temp it holds steady and you may have to slightly adjust a vent every now and again. The second negative is with the temp gauge in the door, mine is off by about 25 degrees, again not a big deal because I have never been a fan of door gauges and made the investment in a dual probe digital thermometer so I can monitor smoker temp and meat temp simultaneously. I would highly recommend this smoker to anyone who is looking for a quality product that produces consistent results. Don't pass this one up, especially if you happen to catch it on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The Smoke Vault 18 was easy to assemble. Parts were easy to identify. Instructions did a great job of walking me through all the way to smoking my first piece of meat. This was my first time smoking anything and the pork loin came out great using a recipe from the website. Next I did ribs and they came out great. Beer can chicken got great reviews as well. The unit holds temperature very well, it is not a gas hog and fairly easy to clean considering whats going on inside there. The unit is all of what Camp Chef says it is. A very nice unit for beginners. I will definitely buy another Camp Chef product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smoker I have owned this for almost 2 years now. I have never had a bad meal while using it. I have smoked just about every kind of meat on it and it comes out tasting better than my favorite barbecue restaurant. I converted mine to natural gas so the convenience of not getting propane tanks. You can literally set this smoker and forget about it. You will only need to add water to the water pan in about 3-4 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18" Smoke Vault Purchased after extensive reading of reviews on internet. This is my first smoker so can't compare to other smokers. First, check competitor pricing and Home Depot will match. Relatively easy to put together-instructions clear and all parts present. Comments from reviews: yes there is some smoke leakage around the door. Not major. From looking at videos of pitmaster setups-they all smoke some. The temperature gauge is inaccurate as everyone says. Get a good temperature gauge; eg, iGrill from Weber-multiple probes and can follow on iPhone via bluetooth. Put one probe through one of the vents for internal temp monitoring and through another vent into what you are smoking. Other important issue: no casters nor holes to insert casters. I needed to move my smoker before and after smoking so had to lift it. Not terribly heavy but inconvenient. My "hack" - drilled holes in bottom of legs, inserted casters and actually glued them in place with Gorilla glue. Works great and solid. This is certainly one of the improvements Smoke Vault manufacturer should consider. Pleased with smoking outcome and would recommend product.
