A Great Overall Look
This smoker is quite different in design. Unlike most smokers, it has around stackable and interlinking design. Overall it looks great thanks to its brilliant red color that should add quite a bit of charm to any outdoor kitchen or barbecue area.
The features are the most important part of the smoker. You do,386 after all, need something that can do the job and we do believe that this little smoker/grill will surprise you. Here are the top features of the Southern Country 4-in-1 Electric or Charcoal Smoker and Grill 5035U4-511.
Control – The 1500 watt smoker works with analog temperature control with different heat settings and will get your wood chips alight and your smoker nice and warm in no time at all. It also functions manually or off the grid with charcoal and a combination of charcoal and wood chips can be used for grilling and smoking food combinations.
Use – The smoker isn’t quite as easy to use as other smoker models. The design is stacked and while it is simple to assemble, it doesn’t give you quite the same ease of monitoring foods as you cook because it isn’t that easy to open and close it to see how your foods are doing. But other than that, it is pretty easy to operate thanks to the analog temperature control and basic design.
Capacity – This 26 x 18 x 18 smoker has a food capacity of 350 square inches which is sufficient for smoking up to 22 burgers at the same time. It certainly is big enough for your small to medium family.
Weight – At only 27 pounds it is a pretty mobile smoker.
Water pan – the smoker also has a 5.5-quart water pan that keeps your food nice and moist while grilling or smoke cooking.
