This entry-level smoker is a great choice for backyard enthusiasts who want an offset smoker that’s better quality than the chain store models.
The T304 stainless steel cooking grate holds 5–6 pork butts or 2 whole briskets, and the optional 2nd Tier Grate doubles that. The optional grill pan converts this smoker into a direct-heat grill for burgers and steaks.
Similar to the PR36 BBQ Smoker, this backyard cooker adds a firebox on the side, for cooking offset smoker style. Indirect heat comes from slowly burning wood or charcoal in the fire box. The removable ash pan and easy access to the firebox makes stoking the coals hassle-free.
“I couldn’t be happier with the versatility of the SQ36. Maintaining temperature is very easy once you get the vents at the right spot.” —Kevin Rau
