Best Grills with Smoker Box

Grilling is one thing. Smoking is a whole other ballgame. There’s no question that grilled foods can be delicious. However, if you’ve ever tasted smoked meats, you’ll know that it’s the best thing that’ll ever come out of your backyard kitchen. If you’re looking for a grill that can smoke meats as well, then you’re going to need a grill with a smoker box. And we’ve got the 5 best ones listed below.

When it comes to combination grills, the Char-Griller E1224 Smokin Pro has got to be our number one favorite. The charcoal barrel grill and side firebox are made of heavy gauge powder-coated steel construction and features cast-iron cooking grates. Removable charcoal drawers make it easy to refuel the grill. The grill also features a temperature gauge, a storage rack, and two wheels which make it easy to move around. The barrel has 580 square inches of cooking space while the firebox has 250 square inches of cooking space. This is an excellent grill and smoker that you can get at an affordable price. The only drawbacks are that it’s not easy to assemble since the instructions are poorly written and the paint does burn off rather quickly.

If you want something slightly smaller, then the Royal Gourmet BBQ Charcoal Grill and Offset Smoker is the next best thing. Its design is similar to the Char-Griller with the main charcoal barrel grill and side firebox. It also features the same front and side tables for extra workspace and porcelain-coated cooking grates for even heat distribution. The removable ash pan, temperature gauge, smoke stack, and two wheels. Unlike our number 1 pick, this one has 438 square inches of cooking space in the main chamber and 183 square inches of cooking space in the side box. Aside from being smaller, this grill is also less expensive. However, it doesn’t seal properly and the metal is a bit thinner in comparison to the Char-Griller.

Outdoor chefs who want something a bit more high tech should check out the Camp Chef Woodwind SG 24 Pellet Grill with Sear Box. This grill features Smart Smoke Technology, using digital temperature control and an automatic auger to feed pellets into the grill which makes maintaining temperature super easy. The temperature range of the grill is 160° F up to 500° F. You can grill and smoke in it. You can also bake, roast, braise, and barbecue with this baby. Plus, the side box isn’t just for smoking meats. You an also use it to create a crisp, caramelized sear. The biggest drawback to this grill is the price.

For more versatility, you’ll want the Blackstone 3-in-1 Kabob Charcoal Grill. Aside from being a grill and a smoker, this baby also functions as a rotisserie grill and kabob cooker. The model comes with 11 23-inch heavy duty skewers that gets turned by the automatic turning machine. There’s a crank to adjust the height of the charcoal tray for more precise temperature control. Assembly is pretty easy too. However, the metal is a bit thin and easily dented.

The Landmann 560202 Charcoal Grill has a lot of the same features as our other picks but it comes in a compact package. The main chamber has 363 square inches of cooking space while the smoker has 169 square inches of cooking space. It features porcelain-coated cast iron grates, an adjustable charcoal tray, a removable ash pan, and a temperature gauge. It has large wheels and a foldable side shelf which makes it easy to transport. The grill is easy to use and clean, an important consideration when you’re dealing with ash. However, it is not easy to assemble and the metal is a bit on the thin side.
