BIG M INSULATED WOOD BURNING SMOKERS
In 6', 9', 12', and 15' Configurations in Mild Steel or Stainless.
BIG M Wood Burning Smokers are thermostat controlled, all wood burning or charcoal smoking works of art! Designed and built specifically for barbecue restaurants and catering.
In the late 1980's, my Grandfather (Homer "Mack" Magee) designed and built this smoker for my Aunt Judy of Shelby's Real Texas BBQ and for a local bbq chain. The first of these cookers were being used over 20 years ago and still being used today. With the original plans and wanting to continue my Grandfather's legacy, we built the Big M to its original plans with some updated modifications to give it the M Grills twist. The craftsmanship, build quality and performance are some of the best you have ever seen from any smoker manufacturer in the world.
Thermostat controlled wood burning with optional charcoal baskets.
Bodies are fabricated with 12 gauge mild steel interiors with 2" of thick high density thermal insulation and 12 gauge mild steel fully welded exterior. The entire body is hand finished for a beautiful appearance. We do not rivet thin exterior panels on our cookers. We offer full stainless steel interiors options!
3/16" thick insulated main cooking doors.
Each door has 4 - 26" X 31" cooking grates. 806 sq.in. per grate. Additional grates are optional for shorter profile foods such as ribs.
3/8" thick steel insulated internal fireboxes with optional charcoal baskets. Firebox doors are 3/8" thick steel and insulated.
8" diameter firebox intake for optimal airflow. Twice as large as comparable smokers on the market. When burning wood, airflow is everything. We designed our large capacity smoker for unparalleled thermostat controlled wood burning smoking. We have also implemented air ports on our damper system so when the solenoid closes off the intake airflow, there is a small amount of airflow to keep your wood combusting.
Large 8" x 16" internal air collector located inside the bottom right of the smoker that runs up through the smoker and transitions into an 8" x 8" stainless steel stack. We do offer an 8" diameter round stack.
Large ball valve grease drain.
16 gauge 304 stainless steel control panel and nameplate.
The Big M is built to order, we can use a variety of options such as custom branding, optional paint colors, additional cooking racks, etc...If you dream it, we can build it.
Just like all of our M Grills products, the Big M is fabricated with extremely high precision. Our sheet metal parts are all water jet and laser cut with cnc sheet metal bending and fabricated at the highest level. We do not cut corners and every one of our cookers are built with consistency and perfection.
You can easily set up your Big M to run as a traditional stick burner by day and quickly set it up to run long overnight cooks.
Insulated Big M Smokers can run for 12+ hours with a single bag of charcoal and a 16" split of wood for a lighter smoke if using the optional charcoal basket or load the firebox with large splits of wood for a heavier smoke. You have control over the flavor of your barbecue.
The insulated Big M's require little wood to maintain temperature. Actually about half of the amount of wood from a non-insulated smoker. Just a couple of sticks of wood will keep the insulated Big M running consistent for hours. This will save you precious and time and money in the long run!
There are many custom options available such as stainless steel racks, stainless steel stack, folding stacks with rests, large casters, charcoal baskets, various colors options, and custom branding.
The attention to detail and highly skilled fabrication and machine work we put into every cooker is a work of art. If we are putting our name on it, you can best believe we want every person that lays eyes on our cookers to be blown away.
