The Barbecook Oskar S smoker can be used throughout the year. That's because smoking is intended for every season, even winter. To start, make a fire with charcoal and wet smoke chips in the lower part, the fire bowl. Place the steam bowl above the fire bowl with water and your herbs of choice. Next, place your meat or fish on top and close the lid. Let the smoking commence. The enameled steel ensures that the heat in the smoker stays well preserved. You can check the actual temperature on the integrated lid thermometer. To smoke larger pieces of meat, a meat hook is included. This way, you can smoke your meat while it hangs. Did you finish barbecuing and you'd like to have a nice after dinner party? You can use the lower part as a fire bowl to keep you and your company warm.
