Grills may get a lot of outdoor cooking attention, but nothing delivers a moist, flavorful meat like a smoker. The Char-Broil 4754512 electric water smoker can smoke up to 50 pounds of meat or fish at a time, and since you use it outside, you can smoke year round. With a 6-quart water pan in the belly and an electric heating coil in the power base, this smoker heats up quickly but doesn't dry foods out. The steam it generates penetrates meats while they're cooking, for big flavors and tender textures. Fixed rack settings in the smoker's main chamber support two 15-inch chrome grates with ample room for a turkey or multiple roasts. The smoker stands on three stout legs canted outward for extra stability. In addition, Char-Broil designed this unit to convert to a tabletop grill. Convertability isn't just gadgetry in this smoker, either. In its grill configuration, the components fit snugly and securely for efficient cooking and power use. The smoker takes under a half an hour to assemble. --Emily Bedard
The Char-Broil Electric Water Smoker takes the standard vertical barrel chamber and utilizes a 1650 watt heating element to smoke or barbecue food. The heating element is controlled by a 5-foot electric cord and a temperature dial. The grill comes with both a charcoal pan and a water pan to help provide great smoke flavor that also absorbs the moisture from whatever liquid is used. A large door provides easy access to both pans. The grill includes two chrome cooking grids that provide a total of 380 square inches of total cooking space.
