Features and Benefits of the SQ36 BBQ Smoker
- Non-rusting Stainless Steel Grates make your BBQ smoker maintenance easier and eliminate possible rust contamination on your meat.
- Smoke travels through the smoke distributor and surrounds the meat before exiting out of the chimney.
- Top and bottom vents maintain control of the internal temperature.
- Slide Out Ash Pan collects all the ashes for easy disposal even while you're cooking.
- Charcoal Grate in Fire Box lets the ashes fall below the firebox, so the fire can burn more efficiently.
- Ball Valve Drain conveniently drains grease and water out of the bottom when it's time to clean up and wash it out.
- Stay Cool Handles on Slide Vents and Firebox Door let you control the draft and open hot doors without burning your hand.
- Thermometer on Smoking Chamber Door helps you conveniently keep an accurate tab of the temperature.
- Painted with 1,200 degree F heat resistant paint.

For smoking, we recommend using non-petroleum based starters. Residue in the smoke from these starters can contaminate the cooking box, potentially effecting the flavor of the meat. The use of a torch or paper and kindling is most effective. Use approximately 15–20 lbs. of charcoal in the fire box to get started. Once the meat is placed in the smoker, you can add wood in the fire box for smoking. From there, you can use either wood or charcoal. Add wood or charcoal as needed to maintain the correct temperature.
For grilling, place charcoal pan in smoker below stainless steel grate and put in approximately 15 pounds of charcoal.
