  • Great smoker


    Camping lover

    After looking at more smokers then I can count I found this beauty. I love it, since getting it I don't even use the BBQ anymore! Once you get the hang of the vents you can dial it in and keep the temperature exactly where you want it. It's small enough and with a propane tank you can take it camping. I couldn't be happier with this product!

    The Smoke Vault 18" is a great smoker and excellent add to any patio/outdoor kitchen. My first major project was an apple wood smoked ham, with pineapple maple glaze, green bean casserole, and apple galette. Yes all cooked in the smoke vault. The smoking of the ham happened first, followed by finishing it in the Smoke Vault along with the beans, then the pie. The trick to the pie was to use the Camp Chef cast iron pie pan.

    Second was BBQ'd Chicken legs (thigh and drum stick) with a blue berry pie. Again all low and slow. Pie goes on top, and finishing the chicken by raising the temp to 300F at the end to crisp up the skin a little more. Use the Camp Chef pie pan again for a perfect pie.

    Camp Chef these products are outstanding. Would have loved to get the sausage hooks which seem to be discontinued.

  • Great value



    The Smoke Vault 18 was easy to assemble. Parts were easy to identify.
    Instructions did a great job of walking me through all the way to smoking my first piece of meat.
    This was my first time smoking anything and the pork loin came out great using a recipe from the website. Next I did ribs and they came out great. Beer can chicken got great reviews as well.
    The unit holds temperature very well, it is not a gas hog and fairly easy to clean considering whats going on inside there.
    The unit is all of what Camp Chef says it is. A very nice unit for beginners.
    I will definitely buy another Camp Chef product.
