All Meadow Creek tank smokers use a reverse-flow system to even out the temperature in the cook chamber for a better, more consistent cook across every area of the grate.

"Cooks like a dream!"

When I decided to start selling BBQ, I researched for about 6 months and fell in love with the Meadow Creek TS250 w/chicken box.

I absolutely love my Meadow Creek TS250 with BBQ42. Once I put my ribs in, I only open to spray them down twice. My chicken box cooks like a dream! When it's time to turn the chicken, it's as easy as a flip of my wrist. I don't have to stand over the heat to flip each one like most people in my area.

What's really funny is when guys see my RIG, their mouths drool about it as much as the ribs and chicken that are being cooked. LOL.

Hope you enjoy some of the pictures I sent to you. In my opinion, Meadow Creek Smokers are simply the BEST!

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.

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.
