Product Details

Warning: Camp Chef’s SmokePro LUX Pellet Grill & Smoker is not for the faint of heart. With a total of 875 square inches of cooking space, this pellet grill has the capacity to cook for even the largest groups. That’s some serious meat. But with all that size comes the same fantastic features of Camp Chef’s other smokers: digital temperature display, easy setting selection, automated pellet auger. Smoking your food has never been easier. And don’t forget about the exclusive ash cleanout system; Camp Chef provides the easiest way to clean out your fire pot after each cookout with the pull of a lever. Less time to clean, more space to cook. What’s not to love?

*For best performance, we recommend using Camp Chef's Premium Hardwood Pellets. The 100% natural wood (no additives or fillers) burns cleaner and more efficiently, and offer a superior taste.


VESTA 2015 Winner

The SmokePro LUX Pellet Grill was given the Vesta Award, an industry-exclusive honor, for its innovative cleanout system and user friendly design.

Camp Chef SmokePro LUX 36 Pellet Grill - Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Smoker This has been a great product so far. I have smoked a brisket, ribs, chicken, pork roasts and tri-tip, all came out amazingly good. The only two issues are temp and cleaning out. The temp occasionally will go down as much as 100 degrees before the smoker catches it and adds enough pellets. Also, the cleaning lever will not open after several smoking sessions. It does not matter as the ash goes everywhere but the cup so you will have to vacuum it out after several smoking sessions. Minor issues in my mind considering how good the meat comes out on the other end. I highly recommend this smoker. It was well made and very durable. The grills are easy to clean. Like I said, well worth what I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality All Around Smoker/Grill We are a premier 60+ resident Assisted Living provider in central North Dakota that provides our residents a great living atmosphere and very fine unique dining. We purchased the Camp Chef SmokePro LUX 36 with the sear box this spring (2019) to add to the fine dining experience and what a great addition it was! This smoker/grill gets a regular weekly and sometimes bi-weekly workout smoking or grilling an average of 45-50lbs of beef brisket, 9-11 full racks of pork or beef ribs, 50-60 8oz steaks, loaded double racks of chicken pieces or bratwurst with rave reviews from our residents and their guests. This grilling/smoking menu is becoming so popular that we are budgeting for another Camp Chef to keep up with the demand from the increased resident guest influx on grill night! The Camp Chef SmokePro LUX 36 has preformed great so far, the only thing I don't like about this smoker is the hot spot area created by the location of the firebox. It seems to me that it should be located more in the center and further away the bottom grates. I find that I have to do a lot of meat rodeo to keep the cooking even both on the indirect and direct grilling. The hot spot is a learning curve you have to get used to with this pellet smoker verses a stick or charcoal smoker which I am more used to, but the ease, consistency and convenience of the pellet system is hard to beat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great oven, terrible smoker. I just smoked a Tri-tip and it was meh. Solid meh. There is more smoke flavor in marshmallow cooked over a campfire. I have a hillbilly smoker made out of an old refrigerator that uses a single burner coleman stove and chips set in a cast iron pan that produces 100% better meat than this thing. I think the 5 star reviews are city people that have never had real food before or something. Waste of money! It does look pretty on the patio though. I guess that's worth something.

Excellent Value !! Wished the lid fit tighter but the smoke has to go out somewhere. Range of heat is out of this world. Just over 1 year old and used at least once a week and usually twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome Pellet Grill I have had my Pro Lux 36 for over a year now. It has been absolutely amazing! I use it at least 4 to 6 days a week and have had no issues at all. It smokes meat perfectly. Always juicy and tender. The flavor and smoke ring in my food are equal to that of any wood type smoker without the hassle. I also purchased the blanket since it gets pretty cold where I live. I have used my pellet grill well into the single digits with no problem. I also purchased the jerky rack system. Its great for jerky and I also use it for making pizza. That way the dough doesn't fall through the grate and I don't have to use a pan or a stone. It can absorb more of that wood fire taste. The jerky racks also let me make large amounts of smoked chicken wings! I usually make 60 or more at a time with no problems. Cleaning the grill is a breeze with the patented ash clean out system. After about 100 lbs of pellets burned, I take the the drip try out and vacuum out the bottom. It super easy. Cleaning the grate can be a little more difficult, but I just wash it with the hose after removing the heavy material. If you are looking for a pellet grill, this is the on to get!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect for the lazy chef! Positives - Ease of assembly - Ease of cleaning - Automated temperature control - Capacity - Time from startup to cooking Negatives - Instructions leave much to be desired Received my Camp Chef SmokePro LUX on 28Jun. The efficient design of the product and packaging made out easy to have it unboxed and fully assembled in under an hour! First time use was to make a wood-fired pizza (Papa Murphy's take & bake). I set the temp to 400°, inserted my pizza stone, preheated, and popped the pizza in. I can honestly say, pizza will take me some practice, as at that low temp, it took about 20-30 minutes to cook fully ...even with bumping the temp up toward the end. Next time I'll set the temp higher, and try not to open/check on it as often. The pizza was crispy around the edges, with a firm...ish crust. The taste was amazing. Higher temps next time will help with crisping up the crust. My wife, who was less than enthused, has done a complete 180! She called me while or grocery shopping, asking if she should add some tuna steaks to the cart (this, in addition to spareribs, and ground beef). Can't wait to smoke the tuna steaks for dinner tonight. The 4th of July holiday will see spareribs, and a tri-tip, with a 14# brisket (my first) to come later in the month, to feed visiting family! Cannot wait! Let the adventures continue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly impressed and now a pellet believer Fair warning this behemoth comes in a large box on a pallet and in a Semi so make plans to meet the guy with your truck if you live on a small private road. Ask me how I know. Easy to assemble albeit it took a moment of staring at the paperwork to figure out the instructions are basically a spec diagram with all the individual pieces pulled apart but still lined up the right way. Once I put it together I couldn’t decide what to cook first so I settled for some poor mans burnt ends because it was much quicker than a full brisket and it was a new concept I wanted to try out. Basically a Chuck roast cooked up just like you would smoke a full packer brisket. They turned out just like burnt ends and only take about 5 hours. After I had my confidence up with it I pumped out butts full briskets and quite a few cuts of deer. This was a great decision because working night shift I can put something on in the morning and sleep comfortably throughout the day knowing my smoker is right in check. I was skeptical about pellets but this thing has made me a believer. I even hooked up my Smoke pro temp monitors the first couple of cooks to check and it has been within 10 degrees on the grill temp and the meat probe was always within 5 degrees of it and me thermapen. I’ll be back with more updates after I’ve put more miles on it because I plan on running this thing ragged.

Ash Cup Cleanout System

Our specially designed ash cleanout system means less maintenance than other pellet grills. After your grill is cool, simply pull a lever on the side and all of the leftover ash falls into the cup where you can easily discard it. This means you don't have to vacuum out your fire pot after every use like other pellet grills.
