Electric BBQ Smokers
Many seasoned BBQ cooks find an electric smoker to be a perfect solution to low and slow barbeque smoking without the need to manage wood or charcoal fires. Electric smokers require less space than large offset smokers, and provide some of the most versatile cooking options available. They are great for beginners, because they don’t require mastery of grilling techniques or fuel management to operate. At BBQGuys.com, we have the best electric meat smokers available in a wide range of styles to suit your needs.
Lower and Slower
Electric smokers today are able to cook at lower temperatures than are attainable with traditional smokers, which allows you to smoke a wider range of foods. A small electric smoker is the perfect piece of equipment for smoking foods like fish, nuts, and peppers, and can even infuse delicious smoky flavor into your favorite cheeses. Large electric smokers can handle robust meats like beef, turkey, or pulled pork, but are also great for smoking jerky and summer sausage. These meats are ideally smoked at around 150 degrees Fahrenheit for long periods of time, which can be difficult to achieve with a charcoal smoker.
Easy to Heat, Easy to Maintain
All electric BBQ smokers use a powered heating element that turns on instantly and reaches temperature quickly. They reach your programmed temperature and produce very predictable amounts of smoke, taking all of the guesswork out of the heat management process. Many electric smokers have a programmable shutoff timer to guarantee that nothing you smoke will ever burn or cook too long. The insulation built into vertical electric smokers allows them to be functional even in cold or windy weather.
Choose Your Flavor
While your electric BBQ smoker does not require a fuel source, wood chips will be required to create the smoke that will infuse your food with flavor. We have a variety of smoker wood chips available at BBQGuys.com. The most common flavors are pecan, hickory, and mesquite, but we also have more adventurous flavors like apple, cherry, and alder. All electric BBQ smokers have a hopper or tray for wood chips, and many luxury or premium models have easy access doors so that you can add additional chips even when the smoker is hot. Some models will let you know via the digital interface when you need to add more wood chips.
No matter what your experience level, electric BBQ smokers have a lot to offer. Whether you’re a BBQ master or just starting out, we can help you find the perfect electric smoker, and are available 7 days a week to answer your questions at 1-877-743-2269.
