Smoke Vault 24" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First smoker but I can't believe there's any better I've smoked everything, brisket, ribs, yard birds (chicken), turkey, salmon, peach cobbler. All came out great. We no longer can buy bbq from a restaurant. And it's so easy to carry on trips. I never leave without putting it in the travel trailer. Propane readily available and water and wood blocks and you're set. Smoke fills the campgrounds and everyone knows it's going to be great food. Buy yourself some thermometers. One for the oven, the thermometer on the door ain't so accurate, and one for the meat. It is so easy to cook perfect meat. USE the thermometer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Hands Down I converted a 24" unit to NG and could not be happier with is unit. I was a rookie but after 3 seasons and 100's of pounds of ribs, chicken, prime rib, rib eye, sausage and the best ever brisket I'm getting the hang of this. Our fav is bacon wrapped scallops. Smoked salmon to rival any store brand. Bacon wrapped lobster anyone? When hickory smoke fills the air it's a sure sign good stuff is about to happen. Love this unit. I've use Camp Chef equipment at Elk camp for over a decade and that my friends is the true test of durability. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, Operation and versatility Excellent I did a lot of research on smokers because I live in Northern PA and it can get cold around Bear and Deer season when I smoke for camp. I was looking for a smoker that was large enough and could smoke brisket at 20 deg for 13 hours. This smoker has delivered with everything I've thrown at it. I've smoked Brisket, ribs, meatloaf, wings, almonds, chickens, etc. Last year my wife bought me 2 more grates and the cover. I love it all. I would recommend this smoker to anyone...and I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smoker for the price, easy to use, gas is better. I used an expensive pellet smoker for years but the food was too dry and too smoky for my tastes. The pellet smokers require special fuel and have too many moving parts to fix and no water tray. They are hard to clean and maintain. The camp chef gas smoker cooks moist meat at low heat with minimum fuss and few parts to replace or break. The water tray is a must for low heat smoking and creating moist meat. The camp chef 24 model is first class gas smoker at a reasonable price. Good value for the buck. Assembly was easy and the service at camp chef is good if you need it. I also own a camp chef gas stove and the burners are high quality like the smoker. You can't go wrong with this smoker and in 5 years you can afford a new one at this price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Natural gas conversion I converted to natural gas and love being able to not worry about running out of propane. Natural gas does not burn as hot as propane but if you are smoking slow and low it works great. I found the grates and water pan should be cleaned after use and removed then stored inside so they don‰ЫЄt rust. Great for smoking turkey, pork ribs and chicken. For Amazing baby back ribs dry rub and smoke for 20 min at 225 then keep cooking for another 2 hours then covered with tin foil in a shallow pan and finish for another 2 hours with bbq sauce.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but needs some improvements. I received this unit ( 24" Smoke Vault) and overall the assembly was easy and the unit is very sturdy. I have smoked over 50 meals in this unit to include all kinds of meat, pork, poulty, fish, vegetables and even used it as a warming oven as well as a baking oven for large pans of Mac and Cheese etc. I would like to see the handles on the sides of the unit change to stay cool handles, the drip tray on the bottom is very very thin and flimsy, it easily warmed the first few smokes. I am concerned that isoon the smoking trap and the water pan will erode to the point it will need replacing. I wish they pans would have remained cast iron as in previous models. Over all though it is a great unit to smoke a bunch of meat. I can do 100 lbs of brisket, or 100 lbs of chicken or 100 lbs of pork butt and 18 racks of ribs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second "box" propane smoker. Love it. I have had nothing but great results with my Smoke Vault 24". Great temp control. Sturdy burner, built to last. I would like to see a deeper/sturdier water pan but this one works (I line it with foil each time for easy clean-up). My first propane box smoker (a different brand) had a nice cast iron smoke box with slotted lid which would be a nice upgrade for the Camp Chef; however even that other brand has now gone to a lighter, thin steel type smoker tray. Great smoker, worth the money and will last a long time with proper care. Propane .vs charcoal or pellets? Not sure that even an "expert" would notice the difference. Smoke is smoke, regardless of the fuel. The convenience and temperature consistency of propane surely beats tending and re-stoking charcoal/wood fires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs So, as I tell my wife, each grill or smoker has it's own job to do. There is no such thing as a do it all from my years of experience. I truly enjoy using this smoker for its ease of use, size and consistency. Plenty of area for the wood chips or small chunks. Plenty of volume in the water pan. Plenty of rack slots and width for cooking your meat of choice. I especially like the slide out bottom tray so it can be cleaned or just wrap it in foil for even easier clean up. Is there a negative? No exactly but any one who grills or smokes alot knows the stock thermometer may not be the best. I have a remote digital thermometer I use. Don't let the hard core " I only use wood or charcoal." cooks deter you, I have three of them in various sizes and I like this smoker tremendously!! Enjoy the purchase!
