Easy to Use

When it comes to smoking meat, you can have a lot of fun. You don’t have to constantly tend the fire. You don’t need to add a ton of seasonings. Just put the right wood in the smoker, add the meat, adjust the temperature and wait. Your Green Mountain grill will do the rest.

Not Just for Meats

Natural Preservatives

Our ancestors knew early on that smoking food was a great way to preserve it for long trips or cold winters. You can do the same with your smoker and never have to worry about wasting money or food. Unlike traditional grilling, with a smoker, you can smoke a lot of food and have leftovers that will be delicious days afterward.

Smokers make it easy to clean up when you are finished cooking. Follow these easy steps.

1.  Let the smoker cool off.

2.  Brush off particles into the bottom of your smoker.
