The Americana Stainless Steel Charcoal Water Smoker offers optimal control, longer cook time, and less monitoring than traditional charcoal smokers. Perfect for smoking chicken, fish, and other meats to a savory finish. The combination of the charcoal with the smoldering wood chips produce smoke that, together, more efficiently penetrate and flavor meats while they cook. A stainless pan holds 5-1/2 quarts of water to last up to five hours for extended smoking operations. With 351 square inches of cooking surface, there's room to smoke nearly 50 pounds of meat at once. Sliding access doors make it easy to check water levels and add more if necessary. Meco designed this smoker so that you can add wood and water without even removing the cover, so heat loss is minimal and meats are tender. Heat-resistant wood handles on the sides and hood mean easy transport and monitoring.
