If you are looking for a compact, easy-to-use meat smoker and you want to get the best flavour you can get out of smoking, then you need to stay away from pellet grills and look into purchasing a charcoal smoker. Natural timber and charcoal will always produce better results with amazing favours. Now, there are a wide range of charcoal smokers on the market and a lot of them are huge and can be a little too hands-on. As we mentioned at the start, the BBQ smoker needs to be compact and easy to use. This narrows our list down quite a bit and leaves us with the versatile kettle BBQ or Ceramic BBQ Smokers. 

Some of the benefits of cooking in a ceramic BBQ smoker are as follows:

Long Lasting - Due to the smoker being made out of ceramic it will not corrode and will last a lifetime provided you don't drop it.
Easy to Clean - No liquid or liquid cleaners are ever to be used on the body so all you need to do is scrub the grill and empty the ash out.
Amazing Heat Retention - Due to the walls being ceramic, this absorbs heat as well as provides extreme insulation from the external elements. The absorbed heat then also helps cook your food.
Extremely Fuel Efficient - Due to the thermal dynamics of the ceramic wall and insulation properties, it holds its heat for a long time meaning less charcoal is needed to cook your food.
Steady and Even Heat Distribution- Because of the central positioning of the charcoal and the ceramic construction, the walls all heat up evenly. The entire internal surface area acts like a radiating oven meaning your temperature stays steadier throughout the cook and cooks more evenly.
Juicier meat- Since less airflow is required when cooking with ceramic smokers, this means your food is not exposed to drafting in the smoker and the juices stay in the meat where they belong.
Versatile cooking - Ceramic Kamado Barbecues are capable of smoking, roasting, grilling, searing and even spit roasting with the correct accessories. 
Amazing flavour in your food - Due to the natural timber smoke and pure heat from your lump charcoal your food will come out moist and full of flavour. 
With these benefits, it's no wonder ceramic smokers are becoming a popular sight in the Australian Backyard. If you need any more help or information on a ceramic smoker, don't hesitate to get in contact with us via chat, phone at 1300 002 771 or email us at sales@bbqspitrotisseries.com.au.

Ceramic smokers are a type of barbecue grill that uses ceramic materials to retain heat and moisture. The ceramic materials used in ceramic smokers absorb and radiate heat evenly, making them ideal for slow-cooking meats and vegetables. Ceramic smokers typically have two sections: a fire chamber which is in the lower section where the charcoal or wood is burned, and a smoking chamber which is the upper section where the food is cooked. Due to the ceramic bowl absorbing heat and radiating it evenly around the smoker, you will always get perfectly cooked food, every time. To maintain an even temperature in the oven, all you need to do is regulate the airflow through the fire chamber and the smoking chamber by adjusting the damper on the bottom and the top of the smoker. By controlling the airflow, you can control the temperature, ensuring that your food is cooked slowly and evenly. Ceramic smokers are perfect for those who want to enjoy the flavour of slow-cooked food without the hassle of monitoring and regulating the temperature constantly like is requires with an offset smoker

A ceramic grill smoker is a great way to add flavour to your food. The ceramic material absorbs heat and radiates it back to the food, giving it a unique flavour. To use a ceramic grill smoker, first, you will need to choose the right type of meat. Pork, chicken, and beef are all good choices. Next, you will need to prepare the meat by marinating it or placing it in a rub. Once the meat is prepared, you will need to light and preheat the ceramic grill smoker. The steps to use a ceramic smoker are as follows:

  1. Open all vents and fill the lower charcoal bowl full of charcoal. This should be about a 10-litre bucket in volume however it varies from smoker to smoker. 
  2. Ensure the charcoal is flat and level and then light the centre of the charcoal. To light the charcoal you can either use natural firelighters or an electric charcoal starter
  3. Do not insert the heat deflector or grills as yet. Leave the smoker open and let that charcoal catch alight properly.
  4. After 10 - 15 minutes the centre of your charcoal pile should be well lit. At this stage place 2 wood chunks around the perimeter of the lit coal but not in the fire. We want the smoker to get to cooking temperature before this timber starts smouldering.
  5. At this stage, you can insert the heat deflector and grill. Keep your eye on the smoker temperature gauge and when it hits 200°F (93°c) it's time to start adjusting your air vents. 
  6. We found to maintain a steady 225°f in a Slow n Sear Kamado smoker the bottom vent should be around 5mm open and the top vent should be around 1/4 to 1/2 way open
  7. When your oven hits 225°f, it's now time to open your smoker and inset your meat. 

It's as simple as that. Keep your eye on the temperature for the next 30 minutes to ensure that the air vents are in the correct settings. After that, the smoker will maintain this temperature for the remainder of the cook. We highly recommend using a remote wireless meat thermometer to monitor your oven temperature and food temperature from wherever you are around your house. 

Ceramic smokers are designed for durability and long-term use. A high-quality egg smoker such as the slow n sear Kamado will last a lifetime or 2 providing you look after it and don't misuse the product. That is why we consider SnS to be the best ceramic smoker in Australia. The key to prolonging the life of a ceramic grill is to keep it dry both in and out and don't use it like a furnace.
