The Bullet Smoker

Called bullet smokers for their cylindrical shape and dome lid, these smokers are a popular and easy way to learn slow and low cooking. The internal cooking chamber consists of a charcoal pan on the bottom, with a water pan suspended directly above the coals to hold heat, stabilize temperatures and create a moist smoking environment. When the vents and cooking temperatures are properly adjusted, a bullet smoker can hold a steady 225ºF–250ºF for hours on end. When considering a bullet smoker, look for adjustable vents to control heat, an access door to add coals and smoke wood, and large-capacity water pan to help stabilize temperatures.
