BIG M COMMERCIAL SMOKERS
BIG M Commercial Smokers are thermostat controlled, all wood burning smoking works of art! Designed and built specifically for barbecue restaurants and catering.
The Big M is an all wood burning smoker built to produce the best tasting barbecue you can possibly eat. We do not use gas assistance or electronic fire sources.
Run this smoker unattended for hours! Since this smoker is thermostat controlled, the solenoid opens and closes at the firebox to control the airflow. If the smoker gets hotter than our desired temperature, the solenoid shuts and slows down airflow into the firebox. When the smoker temperature drops, the solenoid opens up allowing airflow back into the firebox thus raising the temperature. Once you get your fire going, it is extremely easy to operate this smoker and leave unattended for hours.
There are other thermostat controlled - wood burning smokers on the market, but not like the Big M. The Big M features air intake dampers over the firebox to push stale smoke out of the cooking chamber. Typically when the solenoid shuts off the intake airflow, this can smolder the wood producing a lot of smoke. As the solenoid opens, air is rushed into the fire box to allow wood to combust cleanly again. Through our research and countless hours of testing, we added air dampers above the firebox to allow air to enter the cooking chamber and push out any slow moving smoke. We also added air holes on the solenoid plate itself to keep a small bit of airflow moving into the firebox when the intake is closed off. The Big M also features a large air intake to allow a large volume of air into the firebox which is key to producing a clean burning wood fire. All of these features work together to produce great tasting barbecue.
In the early 90's, my Grandfather (Homer Magee) designed and built this smoker for my Aunt Judy of Shelby's Real Texas BBQ. The first of these cookers were being used 20 years ago and still being used today. With the original plans and wanting to continue my Grandfather's legacy, the Big M is back 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 control to easily set your temperature and let the smoker do the work.
3/8" steel firebox with refractory insulated walls and insulated door.
8" diameter firebox intake for optimal airflow. Twice as large as comparable smokers on the market. When burning wood, airflow is everything for great tasting barbecue. 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 cleanly.
Dual stainless steel air intakes to purge stale smoke from the cooking chamber. When the solenoid shuts off the airflow, smoke can have a tendency to stay in your cooking chamber. These air intakes are placed well above the firebox to allow airflow into the cook chamber to allow additional airflow as the solenoid shuts off the firebox damper. You can adjust how fast you want your airflow to move through your cooking chamber without effecting your fire in the firebox.
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" stack. We can also transition to a 8" diameter stack.
The Big M has a standard 9' configuration as shown. Since these are built to order, we can use a variety of options such as slam latches for the doors, optional paint colors, additional cooking racks, etc...
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.
