They are also easy to use, which makes them a great option for beginners. Another advantage of offset smokers is that they are relatively inexpensive and you can also cook a lot of meat at once meaning you get a greater reward for the effort you put in.

There are some disadvantages to offset smokers as well. One of the biggest disadvantages is that it can be tricky to control the temperature however after a couple of attempts you will learn what works. If you are not careful, your fire can go out meaning that a 12-hour cook can turn into a 16-hour cook. Another disadvantage is that these smokers can be large and heavy so they are a little difficult to take to your friend's place for a BBQ. Offset smokers are more hands-on, so if you don't have free time then you may be better off with a pellet grill.

Overall, offset BBQ smokers are a great option for beginners and Flaming coals has manufactured one of the best offset smokers at a great price. The price and quality make this the best offset smoker for sale Australia that will last you for years to come. 

If you have never owned an offset smoker, then chances are you may only think it's used for smoking. Wrong!  Offset smokers can do more than just smoke meats? That's right - an offset smoker can also be used for grilling! 

In this blog post, we'll talk about the basics of grilling on an offset smoker BBQ. We'll discuss what types of food work best, how to set up your smoker, and some tips and tricks for getting the most out of your grilling experience. So fire up that smoker and let's get started!

One of the great things about grilling on an offset smoker is that you can cook a variety of food. Offset smokers are perfect for grilling meat, vegetables, and even fruit. So whether you're looking to grill up some chicken or steak, or want to try something new like grilled pineapple, an offset smoker is a great option.

When it comes to setting up your offset smoker for grilling, there are a few things to keep in mind. The first thing to consider is how much food will you be grilling. If you are only going to cook some sausages or a steak then the firebox is all you need. Just treat it like a little charcoal BBQ. Light up the charcoal, pop the cooking grate on and grill away. 

If you are planning on cooking up a large BBQ for your family and friends, then the firebox may not be big enough. Luckily some offset smokers like the one from Flaming Coals let you set up the entire smoking chamber as a large charcoal grill. What you need to do is remove the baffle plates as they are not needed for grilling then insert the charcoal grates across the bottom of the smoker. When grilling it is always good practice to have a hot side and a cool side, that way different food can be cooked at different temperatures. I prefer having the majority of the coal on the side of the firebox, that way it gets plenty of oxygen to keep it going. I also always leave the firebox door open for the same reason. 

If your meat is quite thick and you choose to grill it instead of reverse searing it, then I would recommend grilling it on the cooling side of the grill. That way it slowly gets up to temperature and cooks all the way through. Veggies should also be cooked on the same side. As always, be sure to keep an eye on your food and adjust as necessary.

Grilling on an offset smoker is a great way to cook a variety of delicious food. Just be sure to keep a few things in mind and you'll be sure to have success!

When grilling on an offset smoker there are a couple of different methods you can use; direct grilling and indirect grilling. Direct grilling is when you place your food directly over the heat source, while indirect grilling is when you cook your food on a cooler part of the grill or away from the coals/flame. Both methods have their own benefits, so it really just depends on what type of food you're cooking as to which method you should use.

If you're looking for more of a char on your food, then direct grilling is going to be the way to go. This method can be used for thinner cuts of meat like burgers, chicken wings, and sausages. Just be sure to watch your food carefully so it doesn't overcook or burn!

Indirect grilling is great for thicker cuts of meat that need to be cooked slowly, like a roast or a whole chicken. This method is also less likely to cause flare-ups, so it's ideal if you're cooking for a large group of people.

So, can you grill on an offset smoker? The answer is yes! Just be sure your smoker has the right grates and grill to accommodate grilling like available with the Flaming Coals Offset and use the correct grilling method depending on the type of food you're cooking. Happy grilling! 

How to Get Started Cooking on an Offset Smoker: The Ultimate Guide

An offset smoker is a fantastic way to cook up delicious barbecue meals for your friends and family. If you're new to charcoal smokers, don't worry - this guide will teach you everything you need to know in order to get started. We'll cover the basics of offset smoker cooking, as well as some accessories you need to get started.

So, what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

Offset smoker BBQs are one of the most popular ways to cook barbecue. They're perfect for large gatherings, and they produce some of the most flavorful food you'll ever taste. If you're new to offset smoker cooking, there are a few things you need to know before you get started.

Offset smokers work by indirect heat. This means that the food is not cooked directly over the flames, but rather off to the side. Offset smokers also have a firebox, which is where the wood is burned. The smoke from the wood adds flavour to the food as it cooks. Offset smoker cook times can vary depending on the size of the offset smoker and the type of wood being used.

Below is a checklist of what accessories you need for an offset smoker, this list is in order of importance to optional:


Charcoal Smoker

* Charcoal or timber splits

* Kindling, firelights or a charcoal starter

* Smoking wood chunks to suit your meat

* Meat to smoke

* Boning/Trimming knife

* An instant read meat thermometer

* Hight temperature leather gloves for moving wood around the firebox

* Spritz Bottle and apple juice

* Nitrile gloves and cotton liner gloves

* Butchers paper or foil to wrap meat

* Chopping board

* Foil Trays

* Wireless meat thermometer

* Automatic smoker temperature controller

* Beer to drink while waiting for your cook

* Charcoal Basket

* Towels and an Insulated box for resting meat

*  Vacuum Sealer and bags to freeze your leftover meat

* Brisket knife

* Meat injector and Injection

* Jaccard meat tenderizer

* A pantry full of Rubs and Sauces for smoking

* Smoking books to learn more or a smoking master class.   

One of the most important things to remember when cooking on an off set smoker is to maintain a consistent temperature. One such accessory that helps offset smokers and other Smoker BBQs to maintain a consistent temperature is a digital thermostat for a smoker. The way it works is by attaching a fan to your firebox air vent, and a temperature probe in your cook chamber. When you set the temperature on the controller the unit automatically adjusts airflow to the firebox to ensure you maintain consistent temperatures. The temperature controller makes your smoking life much easier.

Offset smokers are notorious for being difficult to control, but with a little practice, it is possible to keep the temperature steady. A good offset smoker will have a built-in thermometer, for example, the Flaming Coals Offset Smoker BBQ comes standard with three re-calibratable temperature gauges - two of which monitor the ambient temperature of the cooking chamber while the other is placed at grill level for exact food cooking temperatures. However, it is also a good idea to invest in wireless temperature meat probes. In my opinion, this is the most important piece of equipment you must have while smoking in any charcoal smoker. It gives you the freedom to wander away from the pit and do other things. The EZtemp Wireless smoker thermometer has 2 probes that plug into the transmitter. The way I use this thermometer is by having one probe as an oven probe and I set a minimum and maximum alarm. This is extremely important as your received will beep if your fire has gone out or if it's getting too hot. For the second probe, I pop it in one of the pieces of meat so I can gauge how long it will be until it's ready. 

Flaming Coals Offset Smoker comes standard with two temperature probe holes to run your leads without having to sacrifice chamber temperature by running leads through the offset smoker bbq doors.

Now that you know the basics of offset smoking, it's time to get out there and start cooking! Be sure to experiment with different woods and charcoal to find the flavour that you like best. And most importantly, have fun! Offset barbeque smokers are notoriously finicky beasts, but the rewards are more than worth the effort. With a little practice, you'll be churning out delicious smoked meats in no time, and who knows, you might even be on your way to the competition BBQ circuit.

Offset smokers are a great way to cook food outdoors. One of the most common questions people have about offset smokers is how often they need to add wood. In this blog post, we will answer that question and give you some tips on smoking with an offset smoker.

Offset smokers work by burning wood to create smoke. The smoke is then drawn through the offset smoker and into the cooking chamber, where it flavours and cooks the food. Offset smokers come in a variety of sizes, from small units that can cook a few burgers at a time to large units that can cook an entire hog.

The amount of wood you need to add to your offset barbecue smoker will depend on the size of the smoker and the type of wood you are using. If you are using a hardwood like oak or hickory, you will need to add more wood than if you are using softwood. In general, you should plan on adding one piece of wood every 30 minutes to an hour. If you are using a larger offset smoker or cooking for a longer period of time, you may need to add more wood.

Another important thing to factor in is the size of the wood you are using. When cooking in the Flaming Coals offset, Hark Texas pro pit or a Pro Smoker Smoker, we find that after you have a decent charcoal base and your smoker is at a constant temperature, adding a wood spit that is about 5 x 10cm in diameter every 30 minutes works great. If the charcoal base is getting low, add a few extra spits or some extra charcoal.

If you add too much wood to your offset smoker, the fire will become too hot and the food will be overcooked. If you add too little wood, the fire will not be hot enough and the food will not cook evenly. It is important to find the right balance so that your offset smoker works correctly.

You can experiment with different woods and smoking times to find what works best for you. Offset smokers are versatile and can be used for many different types of foods. With a little practice, you'll be able to master the art of smoking meats on an offset smoker.

Can you use wood chips in an offset smoker? This is a question that many people have, and the answer is yes - you can use wood chips in an offset smoker. However, we strongly recommend wood chunks in an offset smoker or reverse flow smoker. This is because you will burn through the chips too quickly in an offset smoker bbq and it will be a waste of money.

Chips are more designed for smaller smokers, like kettle bbq and the like.

One of the great things about offset smokers is that they can accommodate a variety of different types of wood. Whether you prefer hickory, mesquite, or another type of wood, you can use it in your offset smoker.

If you only have woodchips on hand then the key is to soak the wood chips in water for at least 30 minutes before adding them to the smoker. This will help to prevent them from burning up too quickly. Once you've soaked your wood chips, it's time to add them to the offset smoker.

You may want to add them directly to the coals, and then put the lid on the offset smoker. This will work but they will still burn too quickly. We would instead wrap a handful of chips in foil, poke a few holes in the foil and sit that next to the burning charcoal. This will slow the composition down so you get a longer smoke out of them.

Yes - you can add charcoal to your offset smoker BBQ while smoking. Unlike some popular briquettes that need to be ashed over before cooking and can also give off chemical smells during that initial burn, natural lump charcoal can be used immediately.

The first thing you need to do is make sure that your charcoal is of good quality. This means choosing a brand that burns evenly and doesn't produce too much ash. Once you've got your charcoal, it's time to get started.

We highly recommend Gidgee charcoal, Flaming Coals Lump charcoal and Flaming Coals HotRods. These are made of natural charcoal timber burned into charcoal and the hotrods are processed charcoal that doesn't have any added chemicals other than timber sawdust so they have a neutral flavour.  

When adding the charcoal to the smoker while smoking, we recommend not waiting until the charcoal burns right down but plan ahead. If the coal base is half to three-quarters of what you had, add the fresh charcoal alongside the burning coal so it slowly catches alight and maintains a steady burn. Adding fresh charcoal on top of burning charcoal can initially smother your fire then there will be a temperature spike when it all catches so try and avoid doing this. 

How do you maintain an offset smoker's temperature? Maintaining the temperature of your offset smoker is key to having a successful cook. If the temperature is too low, the food will not cook properly. If the temperature is too high, the food will be charred on the outside while remaining undercooked on the inside. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips for maintaining the temperature of your off-set smoker!

One of the most important things to remember when smoking in an offset smoker BBQ is that it is a slow process. The low and slow cooking method is key to offset smoking, so be patient! Do not try to rush the process by cranking up the heat. This will only result in food that is burnt on the outside and undercooked on the inside.

Another important tip for offset smoking is to make sure that you have enough charcoal. If you run out of charcoal in the middle of your cook, it will be very difficult to bring the temperature back up. It is always better to have too much charcoal than not enough.

Finally, one of the best ways to maintain an offset smoker's temperature is by using a BBQ guru temperature controller or similar. This is a temperature control device that will help you regulate the heat in your smoker.
