Barbecue smokers are a special type of BBQ that allow you to add that authentic smoke flavouring to your food. They work by having a wood or charcoal burners where you can use different types of wood & charcoal to produce different types of smells and flavours.
In addition to the smoke flavour BBQ smoker also all for low heat and long cooking of meats to give that fall-off-the-bone texture that you get from the best BBQ joints. It is possible (in theory) to smoke using a standard BBQ grill, particularly one that uses charcoal. However these BBQ’s are not specially designed for low temperature cooking and smoking so the best option is to go for a specialist smoker.
