Customer Reviews:

SM160, 12/5/2011
By Gary Isenagle (Hutchinson, Kansas)

I have had my smoker for about 6 months. Since receiving it I have used it about 4 times a week. It works as advertised. It has saved me lots of time and effort. Does a wonderful job on briskets, butts and turkeys. All of the products I smoke are moist and done to perfection. I started with an Amerique, which I still use but needed more space as I now do catering. These two units make me look like a pro.
Great Investment, 7/3/2013
By Robert Bafundo (Lombard, IL)

I have had my SM160 for about 2 years and it is an amazing smoker. Truly a set if and forget it unit. Had a heating element and a relay go out on me and it was covered under warranty. I was able to buy a new relay at Granger to cover until they got parts out to me. Try that with a cheep smoker. Great customer service and tech support. Planning on using it at a farmers market next year. Built like a tank!
Love My SM150, 9/5/2014
By Michael Hale (Jackson, New Jersey)

Started with a Smokette, but I loved what I was getting out of it so much I wanted to upgrade to a large smoker. Found a used SM150 (the predecessor to the SM160) on CL and couldn't drive down to pick it up fast enough !! WOW, it is SOOO NICE having the computer controller and extra wide shelves. Got new stainless steel shelves, the cold smoking plate and a Cookshack Cover. My neighbors love my BBQ and so do I !! Suited to be run 24/7 in a restaurant I used mine all year around !! If I invite a lot of folks over I can do a brisket, couple of pork butts, 4-5 slabs of ribs and some chicken wings all in the same run !! Wow Cookshack, You Outdid Yourselves Again !!
Holy Smokes, 11/6/2014
By Marc Bery (Calgary, Alberta, Canada)

I am an Executive Sous Chef at Azuridge Estate Hotel, a Luxury Estate Hotel in Priddis, Alberta, Canada. ( check us out!! We have had our SM-160 only for six months but what an investment. This model is so easy to use and computer controlled. This is an amazing smoker that we purchased to do hot smoking and cold smoking. We are smoking salmon, trout, halibut all from the pacific, not to mention Alberta grown Wagyu and Angus beef, pork back ribs, pork butt, tomatillos for salsa verde and even tomatoes for sauces and soups and vinaigrettes. I am hooked on this machine and loving it. Thank you cookshack for the opportunity to bring your product to Canada and allowing me to show how good our cuisine is with your smoker.
Super Smoker, 10/24/2015
By Kralyn Thomas (San Angelo, Texas)

I bought my Model 160 about 18 years ago to cook for large groups of Real Estate clients. It paid for its self many times over. It has been a wonderful asset. I have had clients come back for seconds of brisket as well as real estate purchases. To make a long story short, I like the cookshack 160 and I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about buying a great set it and forget it smoker.Time is money. I am retired now. but my cookshack 160 is still working.

By Shane Fleming (Irwin, ID)

Just received the SM160 for our restaurant the Snake River Roadhouse here in Swan Valley, ID. Customer service and delivery were excellent. Just learning how to use the unit but so far, so good, everything about it is quality. We look forward to many years of happy smoking. Shane
