The offset smoker is a classic smoker design and one of the most popular out there. Food smokes in a long horizontal chamber while charcoal and smoke wood burn in a firebox attached to one side. Offset smokers work by cooking your meat the moment you've stoked the fire. The heat from the fire is then transferred to the cooking chamber, where your meat lies in wait. You control the amount of smoke by tinkering with the chimney and by adjusting the air intake vents.
The Iron Train 1000 Compact Reverse Flow Offset is a backyard pitmasters dream. Only taking up 1m of your backyard space you won't have your partner complaining about it. It is efficient and the thin blue smoke and even temperature distribution that this reverse flow smoker produces is second to none. If you want a smoker you can give to your kids when you hang up your apron this is the one.
