Customer Reviews:

Excellent Results!, 1/19/2012
By John (Westport, CT)


I have owned the Amerique for about 5 years and it has served our family well. The results are consistent and excellent. We have cooked for large parties filling the unit to the brim and the results have also been excellent. A while back, we had need for some customer service and the people at Cookshack were entirely helpful. The Amerique is a great way to go if you want terrific BBQ, a useful low heat oven without smoking and predictable results.
AmeriQue after a year and a half, 9/4/2012
By Robert (Johns Creek, GA)


I purchased the Amerique a year and a half ago. We like to entertain and last weekend was the real test. I cooked 2 chickens, 6 racks of back ribs, and a 14lb brisket in one session. I set the temperature at 225˚ and the timer for 6.5 hours and put 2 chunks of hickory in as well as all the meats. After 2 hours I removed the chicken that was perfectly cooked with good skin color. I added one more chunk of hickory as the original wood was gone and the other meats looked like they could use more color and smoke. After another 2 hours (4 hours total) I removed the Cookshack rib rack with 6 racks of picture perfect dry rubbed back ribs. Then after another 2.5 hours the brisket was done and I let the smoker hold that until I served everything a couple of hours later as I had kept the chicken and ribs in the oven at 140˚. Next time I think I will put the other meats back into the smoker as it seems to keep the meats more moist than an oven. Our guests raved everything they ate and how juicy, tender, and delicious it all was. Cleanup was a cinch, just took the grills and the racks and ran them through the dish washer, removed the foil at the bottom and over the wood box, wiped down the bottom, dumped and cleaned the drip pan and I am ready for the next time. This a truly awesome unit that lets me turn out professional quality smoked meats, thanks Cookshack, and did I say this is American made!
Great Smoker!, 11/19/2012
By Kern (Enumclaw, WA)


I got my Amerique a year ago and have used it more than a dozen times. It is an outstanding piece of equipment and its relatively high price is supported by the quality of its construction. I've done chickens, turkey, salmon, pork ribs and jerky in it with great results especially on the meats that cook at 225F and above. At lower temperatures it is like taking a shotgun to a fly swatting party. Here's the problem: To create smoke the burner must be on. But, the burner generates so much heat that the well insulated smoker burner in not on much at lower temperature settings - even when the outside temperature is 40F. Thus, not a lot of smoke is created at salmon smoking temperatures of 150F or so. I've tried Cookshack's cold smoking baffle and this helps somewhat as do smaller chips. But, I've also had \"flashovers\" where the chips catch fire after being on 15 minutes - five minutes less than Cookshacks maximum recommendation for the cold baffle. So, rather than getting rid of my Big Chief I now smoke salmon in this for about three hours and finish it in the Amerique. All this could be easily solved electronically. Doing so would make this a true 5 star unit.

This does just what it said it would haven't used the oven in the house since this purchase .
Best Bang For The Buck, 6/3/2013
By Arnie (West Liberty, IA)


I have owned my AmeriQue for roughly three and a half years and I am beginning to out grow it. Lately I am constantly overloading it (my circle of friends keeps growing) and it just keeps on putting out great Que. I bought my AmeriQue late in 2009 because I was outgrowing my six year old Smokette. I reluctantly sold my Smokette, stand, and cover a year later for what I paid for them in 2004, and I have borrowed it back several times lately. I believe that speaks loudly for the quality Cookshack puts into their American made smokers. The ability of the AmeriQue to cook by time or temperature can make any rookie smoke like a pro. I have yet to have anything not turn out great even if I totally ignore the smoker. I don’t tell anyone how easy it is to use anymore because people tend to think I’m making it up so I don’t have to give away any of my “secrets”. This thing is the closest thing to set it and forget it as they come. The only way Cookshack can improve on the AmeriQue is to make a smoker that will load and unload it’s self. Not only is the AmeriQue great for Briskets, Butts, Ribs, Etc. I have cold smoked cheese and butter using the cold smoke baffle or by adding an A-Maze-N-Smoker to it. Great results every time Some may say Cookshack’s smokers are too pricey. I say if I had bought a Cookshack in the 90s when I started smoking I’d be money ahead. The only problems I’ve ever had with either one of my Cookshack smokers have been self induced. A quick call to customer support, which is answered by an honest to God real live person who speaks English, quickly and courteously pinpoints the problem and gets me back up and running. I am usually embarrassed by what I did wrong even though Cookshack assures me “is OK. It’s been done before.”
Amerique SM066, 7/21/2013
By Tony (Seguin, Texas)


Just purchased an Amerique and grilled my first brisket this last weekend. It turned out great. I purchased the smoker largely based upon the consistent good reviews I had read, plus a friend in another town has owned one. He's been thrilled with his. Having said that, there are a few things that I think Cookshack could improve upon. These suggestions are based upon my first impressions when putting the smoker together. First, the casters are too small. They hung up on every joint in my patio and driveway when rolling the smoker across it. I replaced the casters with larger 3\" casters and that was a big improvement. Plus, they look more appropriate on the industrial looking box. I had to search hard for some with a 5/16\" diameter stem, because most 2\" casters, even those at Home Depot and Lowes are 3/8\" in diameter. Looks like they went cheap on this item. When rolling the smoker across my driveway, the drip pan fell out. It made a cheap tinny sound instead of a clanky sound as it bounced on the concrete. Again, not a good first impression. It's no big deal, it's a drip pan, after all. Still I replaced it with a heavier gage one at Acemart for 6 bucks. Though this is an $1800 smoker, seems like they went cheap here too. When I started seasoning the smoker it dripped my GFCI circuits five times...on two different circuits. It finally settled down and seems to be working fine now. Another item I noticed was the tack welds on the wood box. They were discolored. Not that it matters, because the box is going to get discolored anyway. Still, that seems to be an American thing. If the box had been made in Korea, I think the box welds would had looked better when new. The Amerique received consistently good reviews with regard to reliability. In the end, that is what I hope I paid for.

Love IT!!, 10/7/2013
By Bill (Grove City, PA)


Recieved my SM066 last week and I love it! Easy to use, well built, MADE IN THE USA!! It could use bigger casters but other then that no complaints. Looked at many different brands but Cookshack was the right choice for me.
Consistent excellence, 12/21/2013
By Bone Doctors' BBQ (Greenville, NC)


This is the most user friendly smoker I have owned. The racks are large enough to hold whole briskets, several Boston butts and whole racks of ribs. With a probe in place, I can reliably smoke brisket or Boston butts overnight without a worry. My smoker is on a covered porch outside, and can produce consistent results and cook times throughout the year. I would recommend a cover. It is a little aggravating to wipe out the bottom of the unit under the heating element, but, that is a minor concern.
