Char-Broil Deluxe Digital Electric Smoker Review
This Char-Broil Deluxe Digital Electric Smoker is a terrific value smoker. We think it is one of the best midrange BBQ smoker for sale. If you want an electric smoker with a glass door so you can see your food, this is one of the better priced models. Many other models with a window in the door are much more expensive. This is due to the fact that insulating glass is more expensive than metal.
For a mid priced smoker, it is surprisingly well featured. It has an easy to read LED control panel. The Blue LED is even easy to see in the bright sunlight. It has a large capacity of 725 square inches. If this cooking capacity isn’t enough, they do have a larger version. At 725 square inches of cooking capacity, you should be able to cook 6 racks of baby back ribs and a 7lb brisket easily.
We find that the stainless steel finish makes it very easy to clean as you can just wipe it down. We also find this smoker very easy to use. We have found that smaller wood chips see better results than larger ones in this smoker. The smaller chips are less expensive so that works out to be a big plus in our book.
The customer service has been less than stellar and we have had to replace a few parts. But the parts have been very easy to replace, so high marks for that.
