How to Use

Once you’ve mounted your Smokai 1-Litre Classic to your Weber® Q™, you can start smoking. It’s really easy. 

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 or lighter 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

Get Smoking

Designed to smoke for up to 12* hours, the Smokai Classic makes cold smoking a breeze and can supply a controllable volume of quality, fresh wood smoke when hot** smoking. 

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.

Woodchip must be between 2-10mm in size, free of sawdust and dried. Hardwood pellets must be 100% hardwood BBQ pellets. Do not use any BBQ pellets that use oils, additives and/or binders in the manufacturing of their wood pellets.

* Smoking times are dependent on the pump speed, wood fuel type (woodchip, pellets), size, variety (hickory, maple, etc), quality, manufacturer, altitude and the ambient environment.
** Gas burners from the BBQ provide the heat when hot smoking.

Key Features

Made In New Zealand Since 2011:  We place importance on attention to detail, quality control to provide a high quality product. 

Smokai-Modular-System:  Invented by our 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.

Hopper:  The hopper holds the woodchip or BBQ pellets which are gravity fed to the burn.

Control Your SmokeThe 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, holiday home, camp 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.

Alan McDonough

"I've been smoking meat for 40+ years. Attaching the Smokai to a Weber Q BBQ is a game changer. I'm achieving results that we did in the old fashion smoking methods that we used in the trade back in the 1980's. Great piece of kit, which will last forever."

Stu Hallows

"Only used a couple of times so far but cold smoked cheese and sausages and hot smoked ribs...all on my Weber Q - worked a treat...more to come this weekend!"

"Loving the Smokai 1L Classic Smoke Generator. Already tried roast pork and a boned leg of lamb. So easy to use and store away."
