Easy to Use: Set It and Forget It

If you value simplicity in a smoker, then you have to try the Smokin Tex Pro Series 1400 Electric Smoker. We found it to be among the easiest smokers to use — all you need is a 120-volt power supply, some fuel, and a couple cuts of delicious meat just waiting to be smoked! Once your fuel is in the wood box and your food is on the racks, all you have to do is set the temperature to the desired level and let this Smokin Tex Pro Series model do its thing. Virtually no maintenance or observation is required during the cooking process, giving you more time to enjoy the company of friends and family.

The slow-cooking temperature range of this smoker falls between 100 and 250 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect for producing fall-of-the-bone results that’ll have everyone’s mouths watering. Thanks to its construction, the Smokin Tex 1400 electric smoker is able to maintain exact temperatures over long periods of time for evenly controlled heat. The result is old-fashioned, low-and-slow cooking at its finest!

Excellent Construction

The same design that makes this smoker excellent at retaining heat also lends to its durability. Most notable is the double-insulated cabinet, which traps heat and smoke to create moist food while keeping the exterior cool to the touch. There’s also stainless steel used throughout the smoker body, including the removable drip pan.

Because the three adjustable racks — which are removable and dishwasher-safe — can be placed in five different shelf positions for a maximum capacity of 38 pounds, the Smokin Tex 1400 is great for those who love to experiment with their cooking technique. Did we mention this smoker comes fully assembled with four caster wheels and a cookbook? No assembly required so you can get straight to smoking!

Things To Consider:

The smoker’s interior needs to be seasoned before first use. For help with this important step, call one of our BBQ experts at 1-877-743-2269. You should operate this Smokin Tex unit only in dry, covered, and well-ventilated areas. Because of its electrical components, this smoker shouldn’t be allowed to get wet and needs to be protected from rain, snow, and sprinklers. We offer Smokin Tex smoker covers for added protection from the elements.

The unit should also be unplugged and stored inside when not in use. Make sure you adjust the controls to the “OFF” position, unplug, and let the smoker cool before removing or placing any parts. Never leave a hot smoker unattended with the door open, and always be aware of the presence of hot grease when moving the smoker while in use. When using an extension cord, keep in mind that an overly long or light-duty cord will cause the smoker’s heating element to be less efficient.
