Premium Barbecue Equipment for Every Pitmaster

One overlooked benefit to becoming a Meadow Creek owner is the wide variety available from one source. Most premium barbecue equipment makers specialize in one or two types of pit, so when you want a different style you have to buy from a new company.

Meadow Creek gives you a full line of outdoor barbecue equipment. So you can add multiple kinds of cookers to your fleet, without giving up the build quality and customer support you already trust.

Offset Smokers

Available from small to gigantic, offset smokers are your everyday workhorse for any kind of indirect cooking. Meadow Creek’s offset smokers earn rave reviews for the exquisite smoke flavor they produce, for their even temperatures across the cook chamber, and for the way the temps can be dialed in and locked in the chosen range during a long cook.

BBQ Trailers

If you’re serious about feeding crowds, it could be time to look at a custom barbecue trailer. Craft your ideal trailer from the ground up. Get all the pits, cabinets, and sinks you need built in where you want them.

Reverse-Flow Smokers

Hot and cold spots make it almost impossible to cook big batches of meat perfectly. If you've ever wished you could get a more consistent temperature across the entire grate, a Meadow Creek reverse-flow smoker could be your answer. This design pushes heated air and smoke from the firebox to the opposite end of the smoker before it enters the food chamber. The reverse-flow system is the gold standard for even cooking in charcoal smokers, and every Meadow Creek tank smoker includes it. 

Learn more about how reverse flow smokers work.

Santa Maria

This classic grill could make you the center of attention at your next cookout. The Santa Maria grill is inspired by the 150-year barbecue tradition of California’s Santa Maria Valley. This style uses a distinctive stainless steel windlass and cable system to raise and lower the grate over the fire. 

Steak Grills

Easily pack and haul this compact charcoal grill to your steak competitions, backyard barbecues, tailgate parties, and campouts. You can rely on it to heat up fast and reach 400–600 degrees F. You'll find it perfect for grilling perfect steaks, brats, burgers, and anything else that loves direct heat.

PG25 Patio Grill

You can use the PG25 charcoal grill for burgers, brats, and steaks. Or raise the removable charcoal pan to cook ribs, pork shoulders, and whole turkeys on indirect heat. The PG25 holds 16–20 burgers, 7–9 ribeye steaks, or 1 rack of spare ribs, so it's ideal for the backyard or patio.

Pig Roasters

Cook pretty much anything. Seriously. Yes, Meadow Creek pig roasters are engineered to cook whole pigs, and they do it perfectly. But the indirect heat, high fuel capacity, and extremely stable temperature let you cook a huge range of other foods as well. Especially those big cuts with long cook times.

Chicken Flippers

You'll love how Meadow Creek's chicken grills make it fun and easy to grill tender, juicy chicken with delicious skin every time! Flip a whole rack of meat with one hand on the rust-proof sandwich grates. And don't stop with chicken. You can use these for all your grilled favorites, like sausage, burgers, steak, and potatoes. Watch this short video to see the pioneering sandwich grates in action.

Tank Smokers

If you become a raving fanatic after using one of our reverse-flow tank smokers, you won't be the first. Pitmasters can't stop telling us how they love these smokers' buttery-smooth function and stable temperatures. You’ll feel the Meadow Creek difference from the first touch. And you can customize any tank smoker to your liking with a long list of optional upgrades. 

Cabinet Smokers

If your top priorities are compactness, efficiency, and ease of use, our box smokers are your best choice. When you fill the best-selling BX50 with just 20 pounds of charcoal, it can run up to an incredible 8 hours at 250 degrees. You can smoke with or without water for good results on both common cuts and dry meats like jerky. 

Mobile Sinks

Take the hassle out of onsite prep and cleanup with our line of mobile sinks, built of food-grade T304 stainless steel. Fresh and grey water tanks are built in, and most models include integrated water heaters. Choose a freestanding model or add one to a custom trailer.

Commercial Flat Top Grills

If you grill big quantities of burgers, dogs, or steaks day in and day out, this is your grill. Our mobile flat top grills are built to serve you flawlessly under the demanding conditions of a restaurant, festival, or any commercial setting you cook in.

With my previous "big box store" smoker, I spent a ton of time trying to keep the temp where I wanted it. Never really enjoyed when I had people over for a Que.  Now, I just work on my sides, sauces, and beer while my Meadow Creek does what it does best.

I was able to cook 75–80 pounds of wings per hour with ease and without getting carpal tunnel syndrome from turning each wing. The consistency was seamless, and they were cooked to perfection.

I wouldn’t take ANYTHING for it! The smoker makes it so easy to cook, it just seems foolproof.

Take a Tour of Meadow Creek Welding

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of our shop where we build our BBQ smokers, grills, and roasters.

Every cut, every weld, every curve and corner on a Meadow Creek cooker is crafted by a set of experienced human hands.

Dad was an inventor, and he liked to build things. So when a neighbor asked for a custom pig roaster, Dad welded one up in the little metal shop on his farm outside New Holland, PA.

The buyer cooked on it, loved it, and spread the word. Other neighbors started begging for pits of their own. Soon Dad found himself building barbecue pits full-time.

Since that first pig roaster rolled out of Dad’s shop more than four decades ago, some things have changed. Now Meadow Creek equipment is built in a bigger shop by a skilled crew of full-time craftsmen instead of one farmer in his spare time.

Today Meadow Creek’s unmatched workmanship, thoughtful design, durability, and classic visual appeal enjoy a cult following among barbecue pros and enthusiasts around the globe.

But some things haven’t changed.

Meadow Creek is still a hands-on, family-run shop, not a gleaming factory with robot welders humming while their human minders play Solitaire behind big glass windows. That’s one reason pitmasters who cook on Meadow Creek rave about the sharp looks, clean fit and finish, and top-tier performance of their equipment.

Every cut, every weld, every curve and corner on a Meadow Creek cooker is crafted by a set of experienced human hands. Every vent, latch, and handle is placed by a worker with dirty clothes and a trained eye for detail.

Take our virtual shop tour above and watch this gritty, manual process for yourself.
