Kansas City "KC" 270 Smoker

The KC is designed to enable pitmasters to compete in a KCBS competition (or similar event) on a single smoker, whether you prefer to cook "low and slow" or "hot and fast".  To our knowledge, the KC is the 1st insulated vertical cabinet smoker on the market with an extended temperature range from 200F to 400F.  It's also the perfect size for the backyard cook who occasionally smokes for large parties.

The KC incorporates all of the classic features of a 270 Smoker, providing best-in-class temperature uniformity and stability that enables you to Cook with Confidence!  Patented 270 Smokers convection design with dual-chimney chamber, dual-wall 16 gauge steel, and 1" ceramic mineral wool insulation (rated at 1200F) enable worry-free smoking in any weather conditions.

Rear firebox door with sliding vent for temperature control.  (Optional adapter plate can be ordered if you prefer to use an electronic temp controller, however we highly recommend you try smoking on your 270 without a controller first -- the 270 Smoker performs best without one!)  Charcoal basket holds 15 lbs of lump charcoal with typical burn time of 15 hrs+

Overall size including latches, ~28.5" wide x ~52" tall x ~33" deep

Shelf size:  ~13.6" deep x ~23.25" wide accommodates full-size hotel pans.

Typical capacity using just 4 shelves:  9-12 boston butts OR 4-6 large packer briskets OR 12-18 racks of St Louis ribs; add shelves to expand capacity for extra ribs, chicken, etc!

Memphis 270 Smoker

The Memphis is the "go to" smoker for competitive pitmasters as well as for catering and restaurant operations!   Enjoy the temperature uniformity and stability that a 270 Smoker is famous for, while tapping into the extra capacity that the Memphis affords.

Patented 270 Smokers convection design with dual-chimney chamber, dual-wall 16 gauge steel, and 2" ceramic mineral wool insulation (rated at 1200F) enable worry-free smoking in any weather conditions.  Smoking range:  200F to 350F.

Due to the extra large capacity of the Memphis, the fire management system includes two 1.5" ball valves to port air into both the front and back of the firebox.  Use of an electronic controller is optional (it works great without it!)   Side-load fuel chamber provides easy access to the firebox for back-porch trailer and facility installations, and includes a heavily-reinforced ash pan to prevent warping.  Charcoal box holds ~22 lbs of lump charcoal with typical burn times of 6-10 hours+.

4 stainless shelves are standard equipment (additional can be ordered).  12 shelf rails, spaced 2" apart, plus 1 "Northwoods Rail" mounted 1" from top of smoker accommodates an optional rack for hanging meat.

Four 8" casters (2 with brakes) and welded-on handles ensure movement of the Memphis over a smooth floor is very manageable. Integrated "D rings" ease strapping down for transport.

Hollywood 270 Smoker

The Hollywood is our newest model and is named in memory of our dear friend, Bill "Hollywood'nSwine" Allen. The Hollywood is based on our popular Sumo model, with reinforcements to enable smoking up to 400F (v 350F in the Sumo) -- great news for those who may like to cook "hot 'n fast" or to bake.  We added 2 inches of additional depth v the Sumo to further optimize airflow and increase capacity, and increased the number of shelf rails from 4 to 7 to give more options for meat placement. The Hollywood is ideal for backyard pitmasters and those on the competition circuit! 

The Hollywood has all the performance that you'd expect in a classic 270!  Temperature stability is best-in-class, due to our natural convection design coupled with dual-wall, fully insulated design.  Temperature is controlled via a sliding vent on the rear firebox door.  For those who prefer to use an electronic device to control temperature, an adapter plate accessory is available.  (We recommend trying your 270 without such a device first, as the 270 operates better without one.)

The Hollywood is shipped with 4 shelves and will comfortably hold 4-6 Boston Butts or 2-3 large packer briskets or 8-12 racks of full St. Louis style ribs.    

The Hollywood charcoal basket will hold approx 8-10 lbs of lump charcoal or briquettes.  It will typically run >10 hours on one load of lump charcoal, depending upon load and smoking temperature. 

The Hollywood is one of the most portable cabinet smokers on the market.  Similar to the KC, the Hollywood has a built-in dolly (welded-on handles and two 5-inch casters).

Optional upgrades include stainless shelves and a Hollywood "booster" base to raise the height of the smoker, plus our line of custom accessories.

Overall size including latches, handles, and chimney:  ~25" wide x ~25" deep x ~36" tall

Shelf size :  4 @ ~ 21"w x 12.5"d

Weight:  ~210 lbs
