One of our favourite BillyOh barbecues, the Kentucky is an excellent smoker. As a charcoal grill, it has a handy storage shelf and a foldable bbq cooking shelf so you can get the most out of the available space. Plus, with an external thermometer, you can keep track of and maintain optimum cooking temperatures.
Cooking vs Smoking
With various cooking methods on offer, it can be hard to know if you want to grill or smoke, so why not get something that can do both? Use hot coals in the same manner as traditional barbecues, but with the additional option of using a pellet smoker.
To really get that smoky barbecue taste from charcoal BBQs you need to play around with pellets and wood chips to lend meat, fish, and even vegetables unique flavour profiles. And the Kentucky also comes with side tables that can be used as a warming rack as well as wheels, making it a highly portable barbecue.
Unlike offset smoker grills, you can have full control over the smoke levels at your BBQ with the Kentucky's handy adjustable crank. Simply turn to move food further away to the heat and flavour intensity.
Barbecue Smoker vs Gas Barbecue
A gas grill may well be the height of grills and their engineering. In contrast, charcoal grills and smokers are somewhat more romantic. They require more attention and open up a world of possibility to have the maximum amount of control over your food and flavour.
Just remember, if cold smoking meats should always be cured first as it doesn't cook them.
Use various wood chips, pellets, and briquettes or a combination to get a unique smoke flavour that's unparalleled.
Charcoal Grill Storage
With portable wheels, foldable cooking shelf and highly portable size, you can put your Kentucky smoker away in storage overnight or out of season.
Chicken, Beef, Pork, Fish, Lamb Shish Kebab
