Why Consider an Indoor Commercial Smoker for Your Kitchen Operations?

August 17, 2018

Smoked and barbecued meat is a fan favorite all over the world. Continuing to delight customer taste buds, smoked meat is being used in a variety of casual and elegant dishes outside of the traditional backyard BBQ setting. Giving the meat that tangy and sweet smoked flavor people love, requires a lot of space, equipment and is a time-consuming process. Most foodservice environments can’t accommodate the outdoor space needed for a smoker. Luckily there are indoor and outdoor meat smokers that are designed for large and small volume restaurants with space control in mind.

Quality commercial smokers can be used in a variety of foodservice settings, including commissaries, catering, delicatessens, large and small restaurants and barbecue establishments. Beef, pork, poultry and more can all be smoked and barbecued in an outdoor or indoor commercial smoker. Chefs are experimenting with smoking vegetables, fish, fruit, cheese and even deserts.

A major advantage for purchasing an indoor smoker is that you can use it all year round despite inclement weather. Indoor smokers use less wood and utilities since the units are smaller, thus not increasing your utility bills in any considerable way. These smokers allow for precise control over the heat, moisture and smoke levels inside the chamber to ensure your smoked meat and barbeque is cooked exactly how you want it.

Another issue operators face with traditional smokers is the difficulty and effort it takes to clean and maintain them. Kitchen equipment needs to be easy to operate and easy to clean. Consider indoor and outdoor commercial smokers that come equipped with drip pans that catch meat drippings and have inner racks and grills that can easily be removed and cleaned in a dishwasher.
