What to Look for When Buying a Vertical Smoker

Vertical smokers are unlike anything on the market. Some don't fully understand their strengths and often confuse them with pellet smoker grills. Here are a few noteworthy considerations to bear in mind when purchasing a vertical smoker purchase.


Vertical smokers historically will not exceed a certain heat temperature due to the fact that they are most widely used for low and slow smoking. A typical vertical smoker temperature range can be as low as 150°F all the way up to 350°F. If you're looking for giant orange flames kissing your burgers, then these types of smokers are probably not what you're looking for. (See our pellet grills category.) Vertical smokers are good at one thing, and one thing only--low-temperature cooking.

Types of Food


As mentioned above, you likely won't be grilling burgers on your vertical smoker.   However, you can find numerous cookbooks dedicated specifically to vertical smoker cooking. Try your hand at smoked salmon, ribs, a whole turkey, brisket, and even pies! We know the art of cooking low and slow takes a lot of patience among other things, but if you're on a mission to create some of the best smoked food then you're in the right place.


Price is possibly the most influential detail to a consumer. Price points are set based on bells and whistles, power sources, and unfortunately, even brand. Vertical charcoal and/or water smokers can be as little at $50. If you're unsure of the use you'll get out of the smoker, we suggest starting there. Propane vertical smokers can start around the $100 range, continuing up to $700+. Wood-fueled can be upwards of $500-1,000+. We suggest buying a vertical smoker that fits within both your budget and cooking style.

Power Source


Vertical smokers can be powered by many different fuel sources. Electric, charcoal, propane tank, etc. This decision is completely up to you and your preferred cooking methods. You can do some of your own diggings, but we think you'll come to find that everyone's opinions are just that--their own opinions. At we have two different sources of power available for purchase.

Our Smoke Vault line by Camp Chef is propane powered. If your back patio already has a Weber or Charbroil propane grill or sorts--maybe it makes sense to add another propane-powered cooker for convenience purposes. (Add flavor or moisture later by utilizing the water pan and wood chip tray.)

The 2019 launch of the Vertical XXL Pellet Smoker from Camp Chef was a shock to the smoking world. This beauty is plugged into the wall and fueled by hardwood pellets (not wood chips.) If you're bored of the propane scene and are looking to add automatic flavor, you may consider the XXL Vertical Pellet Smoker. Keep patio space in mind when purchasing your smoker. This unit is an absolute tank when comparing the overall footprints of other vertical smokers.

Pellet Grill or Vertical Smoker


Lastly, as stated above, if you're looking for a twofer, meaning a grill that renders both low and slow and directly flame grilling--you may want to change direction and consider a pellet grill. The purchase may cost you a little more upfront, but there are a vast number of cooking profiles available on a pellet grill vs. a vertical smoker. Pellet grills allow you to bake, smoke, and grill, etc. (to name a few) on one unit. Pellet grill temperature ranges are usually between 160°F-500°F. (Add a Sear Box and you'll get upwards of 900°F!) On the flip side, a standard size pellet grill will take up more space on your back patio. If space is truly an issue there are a few miniatures (so to speak) pellet grills on the market as well.

Smoked Bacon Mac & Cheese

Our friend Gary House over at sent us this recipe for Smoked Bacon Mac 'n Cheese. Being huge fans of anything mac 'n cheese we just had to share. Plus, it uses one of our favorite ways to cook, the Camp Chef Smoke Vault.

Pellet Grills vs. Gas Grills

It’s grilling season and you’re in the midst of purchasing the latest and greatest in outdoor cooking supplies. First and foremost—deciding what grill works best for your cooking style. Grills are a rather large investment and warrant a fair amount of research before diving into the buy. Outdoor grilling is no longer solely limited to burgers and brats but rather offer a variety of cooking options to widen the types of food you can cook. When deciding between the two you can expect to find differences in flavor, price, versatility, and selection.



Flavor is hands down the most crucial differentiating factor when comparing pellet and gas grills. Pellet grills are notorious for using fuel that infuses your food with a variety of hardwood smoky aromas. Brands like Camp Chef sell Premium Hardwood Pellets in flavors like hickory, Southwest mesquite, oak, alder, cherry, and more. These pure hardwood pellets offer no additives or byproducts. Hardwood pellets are great for cooking a variety of food like meats, seafood, veggies, and bakery options. Gas grills simply do not deliver the same flavor diversity that pellet grills or even charcoal grills offer. They are fueled by flavorless propane or natural gas that produces flat food.


How much money are you willing you cough up for an exceptional grill? As expected, gas grills are overall significantly cheaper than pellet grills. Like any consumer-able product, you get what you pay for. A good gas grill can get expensive when considering the brand, size, and other added bells and whistles.  Believe it or not, technology has made its way into the grilling world. They’ve adopted automated digital controllers, high tech sensors, and some even equipped with WI-FI or Bluetooth capabilities. A simple gas grill can sell for as little as $75, whereas a pellet grill will typically start around $400. 



A pellet grill is one of the most versatile outdoor cooking options. Consumers are roasting, smoking, barbecuing, braising, baking, and more. Similar to gas grills, pellet grill enthusiasts also have accessory options of cooking on cast iron grates and adding a gas grill-like sear box to their pellet-fueled grill. While pellet grills come in a variety of sizes, your retailer will likely have accessories for purchase that add extra shelving and prep space. Some models of pellet grills allow for a seamless switch between cooking with a direct or indirect flame. In terms of temperature, gas grills reach a higher temperature. Most gas grills have a temperature range of 250°F - 700°F. Conversely, pellet grills are exceptional at low-temperature cooking containing heat ranges from 160°F - 500°F.


When you think of your normal everyday grill, you don’t typically reference a pellet grill top of mind. Overall they aren’t as well known as gas grills. Therefore, you can expect to find a better gas grill selection in store. Gas grills essentially provide unlimited options when referencing size, finish, and price. But, over the years pellet smokers have been gaining in popularity among grilling enthusiasts and the general public alike. While there are a ton of exceptional performing gas grills on the market, there aren’t a plethora of high-quality pellet grills. Be choosy and stick with a well-represented pellet brand. Check out our recommended Wood Pellet and Propane Gas Grill selections.

“I have had my Camp Chef Pellet Grill LUX for a few months and I couldn’t be happier. Before I decided on my purchase, I did a lot of research on other brands and found that the Camp Chef had the most features, for the best price. Win-Win! The pellet hopper, has a pull out, which makes it easy when you want to switch flavor of pellets, instead of running the pellets all the way of the hopper and auger chamber. The other feature that Camp Chef has, that I haven’t seen on any other pellet grills, is the ash cup clean out. It’s nice not having to get out the shop vac every time you are done cooking just to clean out the fire pot. This pellet grill cooks great and has plenty of room! It will fit at least 6-8 full pork butts (depending on size). I put 7 in there for a work party, and it cooked like a dream. Filled the hopper and it did the rest. I am very happy with my purchase and I would buy this pellet grill again.” - Boss Man


Camp Chef Pro 90X

For our ever-active outdoor cooking enthusiasts, the Pro 90X is our best selling stove.  Set up for a Friday night football tailgate part, then seamlessly transition to the campground on Saturday morning.

Cook brats, burgers, and everything in between on three powerful burners.  For even more added fun our consumers love to mix and match other 16 inch accessories like a fry griddle and pizza oven.

“We’ve used this several times now and love it. We bought the cast iron cook top to use on it and have cooked everything from breakfast items to steak, etc. It works great and folds up easily for better storage. It is heavy, so it’s hard for me (a 5’1” female) to get in and out of my LQ horse trailer to use if my husband doesn’t go with me...but not impossible. Just takes lots of muscle and maneuvering. I would definitely recommend it if you cook a lot camping. I do think we would have been ok with a 2 burner instead of a 3 burner but it’s nice knowing we have that extra burner if we need it or camp with a big group and want to cook lots of food.” - Countrygrl4u2nv (Amazon Verified Review)


BBQ Tool Set
