Digital Electric Smoker with SmartChef™ Technology from Char Broil



All right gentlemen, we all love smoked foods, but who enjoys constantly standing over the smoker for hours watching temps and keeping the wood smoking?  Yeah I thought so..  Enter the new Smoker from Char-Broil.

Char-Broil has introduced the new Digital Electric Smoker with SmartChef™ Technology and it takes the guess work out of getting perfect smoked meats. The Smart Chef Technology connects your Smoker and your Smart Phone and lets you keep track of your meats from the comfort of your hammock.  This app allows you to adjust meat and chamber temperatures, get info on the cook time and estimated done time, and even access a pre-programmed library of recipes. You can even receive notifications at key cooking times, so you never have to peek in or worry about overcooking a meal.

Smart Chef

The Digital Electric Smoker has four racks to give you 725 cubic inches of cooking space, and an integrated temperature probe that connects to your Smart Chef App.

How does it work you ask?  Well I received my Char Broil Digital Electric Smoker a few weeks ago and have been using it every weekend. (it arrived just in time for the nice spring time weather!)

My first weekend of using the Digital Electric Smoker we made some baby back ribs.  It could not have been simpler.  First we chose the wood chips we wanted to use and filled the smoker box. With the smoker box you don’t have to soak your wood chips in water like some other smokers.. making it just a bit quicker to get started.


Pop the lid on the smoker box and place it in the spot above the heating element and add some water to the drip tray.  Then open up your app and choose your meat.

After you hit the add Button the smoker will pre-heat your wood chips.. makes for a good time to put the dry rub on your ribs


The app will let you know when it’s time to put the meat in the smoker, if your cooking a brisket or larger piece of meat place the probe in the meat.

Press the start button again and let the smoker do the rest!  It will keep you informed of when you should check on the meats and when they are done. When the app tells you it’s done, go enjoy your meat!


Now if you’ll excuse me I have some ribs to eat..  Get Your Digital Electric Smoker now!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
