The Barbecook Oskar M smoker can be used throughout the year. That's because smoking is 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. Now the smoking can start. The enameled steel ensures 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 hang your meat for smoking. 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.
