Smoking is made simple with the Big Chief as all you have to do is plug it in to a standard household outlet. Place your food (after brining or preparation) on one of the five racks that sit over top of the drip pan... the smoker's capacity is a whopping 50 pounds of meat or fish! Then close the door. The Big Chief's wood chip pan is removable without ever opening the door, so you're never letting the heat out and dealing with those pesky fluctuating temperatures. Just choose your favorite flavor of Smokehouse Wood Chips and you're guaranteed to be getting an amazing amount of smoke... even with the smoker temperature at just 165 degrees! Now not every smoker can do this so you have to appreciate a low smoking temperature with an abundant amount of smoke. Now's the time to put your feet up and admire what your doing with a cold, frosty beverage! Before you know it, you'll be the most popular person in the neighborhood with the best tasting food to share!
