BBQ Equipment: Char-Broil Double Door Smoker, BBQ and Grill

The folks over at Char-broil recently invited me and a bunch of other food bloggers to New York City's Bryant Park for a quick peek at their product line for 2007. They showcased their new Tec series gas grill, which is pretty sweet for a gasser. So sweet in fact that I'm actually interested in cooking on it.

They also demonstrated some accessories like the Smart Thermometer, a new brand of quick light charcoal, a grill cleaner designed for a woman's hand, fire starters and a new Double-Door Smoker. Can you guess which one caught my eye?

Some of the items like the thermometer haven't hit the market yet, But I can't wait to get my hands on it. It has some really interesting features and should be a real improvement on the remote thermometers available now. As soon as I get my hands on one, I'll be reviewing it here for you.

Now about the shinny new toy, The Double-Door Smoker, BBQ and Grill, not exactly a catchy name but here's the poop from Char-broil about it.
  • Double-Door Smoker, BBQ and Grill available at Lowe’s
  • Double doors enable better access and reduce heat loss for perfectly prepared meals. Heat is evenly distributed by cast iron porcelain-coated cooking grate.
  • Top-mounted smoke stack tumbles smoke within the firebox for the ultimate smoked fare.
  • A bonus veggie rack and a water/marinade pan provide additional preparation options for all-in-one convenience.
  • Features 738 sq. in. total cooking surface area which includes the cooking chamber and the firebox.
Here's the kicker, the fine people over at Char-broil gave me the grill to try out. Yep folks, they gave me the grill! I have a new toy! Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be cooking, playing and poking the Double-Door smoker to an inch of it's life. I'll let you and the people over at Char-broil know what I find out. But like I told Char-broil, I'll be posting the good and the bad. It should be an interesting time.

Robert, I have been looking hard at the Brinkmann Smokin Pit. Does this Charbroil need the necessary baffle and smoke stack mods, or did they already address these issues in the new design? Looks sweet, really like the idea of double doors.

I had the double-door smoker while I lived in Dothan, Alabama, which I purchased from Lowes, and had to move to Montana so I gave it to my daughter. The first thing I did when I got up here was go to Lowes and special ordered one.

The comment from the first anonymous as far as I'm concerned is HOG WASH, you offer to comments as to why.

I've been BBQing for 30 years and I really liked this smoker for non competetive, back yard smoking & BBQing. It's easy to control the heat and add fuel to. It's easy to has plenty of features, but I most admit, it could have been a little larger in the smoke chamber to accomidate more racks of ribs (4 small slabs filled it up), but everything else fit with no problem.

My opinion, for the $199.00 price, it's a pretty good bargin.

where in the world can you buy this? i have searched everywhere and can't find it. local lowes don't know anything about it.

I just bought one of these puppies today (from Lowes in Tallahassee) but I can't seem to find a decent (ideally fitted) cover for it. Any suggestions?
I haven't used it yet but it looks great and feels like pretty good quality. As the man says, "if it's heavy, it's expensive". Well this is heavy so it must be a good deal! :)

This item just dropped to $117 on clearance at Lowe's. I just bought it and cannot WAIT to start using it.

Is this Smoker still available? Do you have to special order it from Lowe's?


At 9:23 PM, Blogger WhiteTrashBBQ said...

According to Charbroil it is available at Lowes. The model number is: 04201004

If you can't get it, let me know and I'll contact Charbroil directly for you.
