The Char Broil Big Easy TRU Infrared smoker is extremely portable and supports multiple functions of smoking, grilling and roasting. When we examine the capacity of the smoker, we get to know that this smoker is for household use only. It has every quality to give restaurant like delicious smoked food to the family.
However, the smoker can be used to serve the guests at a small party or gathering. To operate this smoker oil or charcoal is not necessary it uses propane gas as its fuel. The smoker uses the technology of TRU infrared cooking system which evenly heats the meat and eliminates cold and hot spots.
The cooker is fully enclosed and holds a propane burner in its core for heating. The inner wall is made of stainless steel that conducts and radiates heat which eventually penetrates the food. This happens similar to the traditional pot heating where heat is distributed more or less evenly on the meat.
The smoker has an intact insulation that shields the heat from going out. So the juices are sealed inside which keeps the taste and fragrance intact. The result is the authentic tasty smoked food for your family and friends. The hot air generated in the cooker escapes out by the vents which avoids dry food. The heat is regulated with moderation to keep the cooking process going. The final result is the delicious meat that is tender and moist.

The smoker box inside the smoker uses the pellets or the wood chips to provide necessary smoke and flavor. The efficient smoking system creates large amount of smoke using small bits of wood chips. So remember not to overuse the wood chips, it can get very smoky. The residue left behind after smoking is minimal. It is easy to clean this waste out of the smoker after smoking the food. The smoker can fit in a 25 pound turkey in its rotating double stacked stainless steel basket.
Other great way to use this cooker is for grilling and roasting. This unit includes features such as meat thermometer, temperature control in the range 9,000 to 18,000BTUs, grease collection tray, stay cool handles and rotary ignition. The size of the smoker is 18*24*36 inches. It looks like a refrigerator in the kitchen. It doesn’t occupy large amount of space like the commercial smokers. It can be used for both indoor and outdoor cooking.
The infrared technology in the smoker generates the heat which then spreads across the surface of the food. The heat flow is limited and kept natural to avoid drying. The traditional convective heat dries the food but infrared technology retains the moisture and locks the flavors and natural juices. Use of infrared cooking system also eliminates the flare ups which give rise to cold and hot spots.
