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 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 or completely traditional. You choose your cooking style.
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.
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 round stack.
The Big M is 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 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 an overnight cook.
Insulated Big M Smokers can run for 10+ hours with a single bag of charcoal and a 16" split of wood when using a thermostat controlled system via fan or solenoid damper.
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.
