How To Use
What's In The Box
Smokai Modular System™: Invented by Smokai's founders, the modular design of our Smoke Generators makes mounting, assembly, disassembly, ash disposal and cleaning super quick and easy. The precision engineered, heavy duty components lock together in seconds.
1 Litre Hopper: The gravity fed hopper holds 1 Litre of woodchip or BBQ pellets. Using BBQ pellets on a low pump speed, the classic can produce clean smoke for up to 12 hours.
Control Your Smoke™: The variable speed air pump can be adjusted to control the volume smoke, from a light to heavy smoke producing the very best results.
Power Options: Choose from a mains powered pump or our wireless, rechargeable battery powered pump for off-grid smoking. Take your setup to the beach, bach or on the road with ease.
304L Hygeinic Stainless Steel: There is stainless and there is stainless. Smokai uses the very best, locally sourced, certified, hygienic 304L stainless steel.
Silicone Air Tube: Made from high-temperature, food-safe silicone, the air tube connects the air pump to the Smoke Generator.
Hardwood Lid: We chose to include a hardwood lid, not steel, so that it seats well on the hopper and can safely be removed by hand during the smoke to check the level of smoking wood or refill.
Flat Base: The flat base provides an alternative option to fixing the unit using the built-in mounting bracket. If your setup allows, you can simply rest the unit on a shelf or the ground and line up the smoke outlet to the hole entering your smoking chamber.
The variable speed air pump gives you control of the smoke volume ensuring you don’t over smoke your food which is often the case with other smoking systems.
Fresh wood is gravity fed to the burn with ash settling on the base, ready to quickly empty after your smoke.
The smoking time is dependent on the wood fuel type (chip, pellets), variety (hickory, maple, etc), pump speed and the ambient environment.
* Using 100% flavorwood BBQ pellets with the pump set to its lowest speed.
** A separate heat source is required when hot smoking.
How To Use
STEP 1 Fill the hopper with you preferred woodchip or hardwood pellets.
STEP 2 Turn on the pump and adjust to high volume.
STEP 3 Light with a match and watch in amazement for a few minutes (there will be a ludicrous volume of smoke on high).
STEP 4 Crack open a beer and adjust to your preferred smoke volume.
Holds approximately 300gr / 10.5oz woodchip.
Up to 12* hours continuous smoking on one load (dependent on wood type, wood variety, pump speed and ambient environment).
1 Kg (2.2 lb) of manuka wood chip will provide approximately 12 hours of smoking time (on a low pump setting).
