Smokey Mountain Cooker Series
For more experienced barbecuers or just lovers of barbecue in general, Weber has the Smokey Mountain Cooker Series. One of the best low and slow cookers on the market, savoury every bite as the tender meat falls off the bone.
Inside, a porcelain enamelled water pan generates steam to keep the cooking temperature low and even. As a result, the foods are tender, succulent and moist. Smouldering smoke combines with the steam and filters up through the double racks, encircling hams, fish, poultry or sausage to produce beautiful flavours. The smoker is made from heavy gauge steel sealed in porcelain enamel that won’t peel, stain or burn.
