Simple Smoker with SmartChef Technology

Love this product. It was nice to download the app and receive notifications via my smartphone, letting me know that the meat was almost ready. You simply put your meat on the smoker, tell the app what you are cooking and then you go about your day! We added the Cherry Wood chips as well and the flavor was fantastic.

One of the most frustrating pieces of equipment I've bought in my life. It took 3 hours on Friday to get it setup through tons of running back and forth to press the DADO button. Finally it just magically started working. Cooked a turkey with it this morning, went through the steps, pulled it out when it said it was done with the warming. Looked pretty tasty. Until I cut into it, about halfway through the breast was pink. Ok, maybe my fault, never cooked a turkey before. Replaced the probe back into the turkey a little deeper this time. Dropped it back in the smoker, went through the setup again. This time it says the probe isn't plugged in. Hmm... double checked, yup, plugged it in. Unplugged and replugged. No probe is detected. Odd. All of a sudden, it's lost connection to my network after being connected no problem. I work with wireless networks as part of my job, whip out my wifi tools, everything is good. Cannot for the life of me connect to the DADO for more then a second before the whole thing restarts itself, unplugged, replugged, off, on, for over an hour I have had a half cooked turkey sitting there with an smoker that doesn't work. Google it, nobody else seems to have this problem I can find. Call the number listed on this site, sorry, closed on Sundays. Worst product and support I've ever seen.

Terrible product


I bought this smoker quite some time ago. I didnt use it right away, but when I did get around to trying it out, it took way too long to get it set up, and connected. struggled though the prep, and was very frustrated to get through the first cook. It sat again for a couple months, as I was upset with how it worked the first time. I have tried it again, it connected and got started, but then lost connection and will not connect again. This has been an absolute waste of money, and has ruined 2 meals.

Got smokin in minutes


Really like to simple smoker. Easy to set up. Like the ability to make smaller batches for just two people but the flexibility to do bigger batches using the basket and extra racks. Also love the convience of electricity.

I think the concept is great but the end result is not the best. The space is very constricting and removing the food it difficult. The app is not the most user friendly if you want to smoke an item that is not part of the pre-set recipes there is really no other support. The wood chips function only works on occasion. During a 4 hour smoke of ribs, I was only able to burn off one round of chips. The add chips button did not work when I would push it. Had it not been a father's day gift, I would have returned it.
