Questions & Answers

Is it painted with high temperature paint?

Asked by: Jay
Yes it is painted with high temp paint but it doesn't make a difference. The paint will peel off of any offset smoker made of steel regardless of which one you buy or how much you spend. The key is to spray a thin layer of vegetable oil inside and outside of the firebox after each use while it's still warm and it will have the same affect as seasoning cast iron, it won't rust on you. You can touch it up with the high temp paint if you wish but it'll just peel off as well. There is no preventing that when you use an offset smoker, just plan on keeping it oiled and you won't have issues with it rusting out.

is there an ash cleanout pan or drawer?

Asked by: hondaman
no tray. I find that putting a disposable cooking pan (foil) in the bottom makes for a quick cleanup and helps protect the bottom of the smoker from premature ware from the intense heat when your smoking for up to 15 hours at a time. they say these smoker are built with heavy duty construction... I don't know what they think is heavy duty is, but these are not that's for sure.

1012 sq. in. Competition Pro Offset Charcoal or Wood Smoker in Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 317.

I have only used this grill a few times; but I am extremely pleased with it. I will admit it took me longer to assemble than the instructions stated. Part of that was due to the fact I was working alone, and also that I wasn't carefully reading the instructions. To give you an example, I had to install the legs 3 times. So pay attention to the way things fit. Also, there is no way to adjust the distance between the charcoal and the cooking grates. All that needs to be done is shift the meat away from directly above the charcoal. The first thing I cooked on it was a beautiful porterhouse steak about 2 inches thick. After seasoning it, and letting it remain in the fridge over night, and bringing to room temp. I seared both sides, and then moved it from over the coals to one side. It came out a beautiful medium rare, tasty, and delicious. I can recommend this grill/smoker to anyone that asks. It is worth the price. Go for it. I plan on using it for a very long time. In fact, I'm going to purchase a welding blanket and use it year round. As long as it's not raining sideways I can grill/smoke. As I live in the Pacific Northwest west of the Cascades this isn't a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk The fire box will fail iver time. This smoker is not worth the money as it won't last as long as other brands.

This was pretty easy to assemble; states it takes 2 people but I had no problem at all by myself. The hardest part was attaching the firebox by myself but not really difficult. I used 700 degree hi-temp seal felt tape to seal between the fire box and smoker box and fire box door. The permatex red or gold RDP is too messy when you try to not smear it when attaching the box. Felt worked great and does not leak at that spot. Doors all leak but they can be sealed as well. Overall, this smoker is made of high grade heavy metal, sturdy built, and it really does work great. Inside containers and racks come pre-oiled too. I am very happy with this unit and you cant beat the price for such a sturdy smoker-grill combo. I only give it 4 stars because of the (expected) leaks. Other than that, I'd give it a solid five stars as all else is excellent for the price.

By far, of all the different grills I have used, this is the most versatile. If you want to do a few steaks, just fire up the little box and get a nice hot seer and cook on your steaks. You want to smoke, you can do that and controll the heat and smoke. For large group BBQing, ribs and chicken all at once or smoke a 20lb. turkey, this unit will do it all. For its capabilities and superior cooking charastics this Char-Griller delivers. Dollar for dollar, it is lthe best. Even a $ 5000.00 Bull BBQ can't deliver this type of Grilling quality and I have owned both.

The ability to maintain temp is a challange as the metal is very thin and combined with the very small fire box you need to tend to this smoker constantly. There is no set and forget. When I first got it home (pre-assembled at store) I tighten and checked all bolts. When I seasoned it, the fire box (after) showed signs of paint coming off and rust developing. I noticed on the back side of the cooker the paint was coming off. My first cook was mother's day, I started the fire at 4:30 am, and had to watch as the temp could not be maintained for any lenght of time. [weather was cold and rainy] Smoked beef ribs. Second cook was searing 3 steaks. Coals did not maintain heat had to add more coals. Third (last so far) I made (smoked/inderect) beer can chicken. Two birds, same location and different finishing temp. Coals had to be replenished to keep heat up as I also had smoked chicken wings. Sent picture off to company of rust/heat spots (paint failing) to company, waiting on their response. On the plus side the cooking area is large and does allow for a tremendous amount of food to be smoked. The cooker also alows for coals to be added to the main chamber to be used as a regular grill so the versitility is there. In August I intend to smoke beef ribs for a cook out I will be attending. I expet to be able to smoke about 30 pounds as I will be using rib stands. I will follow up on any issues I see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality at a good price I bought this smoker two years ago , one of the best investments I've made . Assembly is easy , season the smoker a couple times prior to smoking meats and you'll have years of enjoyment with this smoker . Ribs , Tri Tip , Brisket , Pork Loin come off this making your taste buds flow ! Just monitor the temperature and cooking times and you will not be disappointed , now go get one and start enjoying some great quality BBQ !

The left side wall on the fire box is very thin and will rust through over time. Mine didn't last 3 years until a hole started to form. Char Griller will not doing anything about it as I do not have the receipt. Do not buy this if you are looking for something that will last. The firebox is also extremely leaky. You burn more charcoal than you should with this smoker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good offset smoker but you do need to modified for airflow. Also if you are going to us... This is a good offset smoker but you do need to modified for airflow. Also if you are going to use for grilling the factory paint is going to burn down to bare metal on the backside and bottom outside. The factory paint is not rated for high heat paint. Overall it is a good smoker for a beginner.
