The ConvoSmoker features a built-in smoker box filled with flavored briquettes. How? A low-watt heating element below the smoker box makes the briquettes smolder and infuse the food with flavor. The ConvoSmoker combi oven provides all the benefits of smoke-flavored foods without having to purchase a separate smoker oven. Ideal for fish, beef, pork, poultry, cheese, and vegetables, the unit has the ability to do both cold and hot smoking in addition to smoke roasting, i.e. "barbequing" or "pit roasting".
