Smoker Bases

Skip to footer

A smoker base is a flat metal griddle that holds your wood chips or sawdust during the smoking process, allowing the smoke to flow evenly under your food, and is placed directly into a smoker to heat and smoke foods. It can also be referred to as a smoke box. Smoker bases made from cast iron, stainless steel, copper, and other materials are used for cooking a variety of foods in restaurants and at home. Cast iron is popular for a smoker base because it is durable and retains heat well. Stainless steel is a good option if you want a non-stick surface. Copper is highly conductive, so it retains heat well and is a good option if you use a gas or electric model. They are designed for smokers and are a combination of different materials like wood, charcoal, and others. They are great for smoking fish, meat, and other food items and are available in different shapes and sizes. Some of the most popular shapes include rectangular, octagonal, and round. They come in different sizes as well, depending on the desired quantity.
