The Good

  • Spacious Interior
  • Simplicity
  • Rare Qualities
  • Extra Add-Ons

The Bad

  • No Controls
  • No Viewing Window

Spacious Interior: The main draw of the Smokehouse Big Chief is the shear amount of food it cooks at one time. It has five racks that can hold up to 50 pounds, yes 5-0, of meat and seafood. Talk about enough food for the party.
Simplicity: If you want to sit back and let your machine do all the work, the Big Chief is the smoker for you. The front-loading display makes the meat accessible, while flavor and drip pans handle taste and clean up duties.
Rare Qualities: For a mid-level electric smoker, the Big Chief offers some features not seen on many models. Its two-year warranty is more than most high-end smokers offer, while there’s plenty of cooking space and no assembly required. Start cooking as soon as you get this unit.
Extra Add-Ons: A smoker recipe and instruction booklet is included with your purchase, along with a 1.75 lbs bag of wood chips.
No Controls: There’s no remote controls, digital monitors or even temperature controls to speak of on the Smokehouse Big Chief. The 165-degree temperature is non-adjustable, along with everything else.
No Viewing Window: You must open the door and release heat each time you want to check on your food. The windowless door also takes away the appeal of watching your meat cook to perfection.
