Description

Box smokers have been doing well at competitions and backyarders love them because they’re compact, easy to use, and efficient to run. Combined with Meadow Creek’s 30+ year tradition of outstanding quality and service, the BX50 Cabinet Smoker is setting the woods on fire.

What really sets this box smoker apart is the ability to use it with or without water! Unlike some cabinet smokers on the market, such as the famous Backwoods Competitor, the BX50 works fine without water, which means you can use it for jerky. The water does help stabilize the temperature, but it does a very good job without water too.

The BX50 also comes standard with an auto-feed water system and a 5-gallon water jug for hassle-free water smoking.

This smoker is easy to use and quite efficient too, running at 250 degrees F for at least 8 hours on 20 pounds of charcoal. There are two thermometers for monitoring the inside of the cooking chamber. Using the BX50 as a water smoker, you should see only several degrees difference between the top and bottom thermometers once it’s up and running.

Whether you cook in the backyard, competitions, or in a commercial catering setting, the Meadow Creek BX50 is the next cool smoker to have.

I highly recommend the Meadow Creek smoker. It took some getting used to for me, but I love everything about it… Because I like to cook at night while I sleep, I added a guru and a 30 CFM fan; this works beautifully. I have been reading StoryQue magazine and trying lots of new things. This BX50 Box Smoker has opened up a whole new dimension for me… I’ve smoked some jerky dry, and my next adventure is a cured bacon. I mostly cook butts, brisket, and ribs, but I am learning with each new cooking.

Features of the BX50 Cabinet Smoker

  • The 13 gauge double walls with 1″ insulation makes this smoker extremely consistent and efficient.
    • 20 pounds of charcoal will fire this thing for 8 hours at 250 degrees!
    • Only 5 degrees difference between the top and bottom of the cooking chamber.
  • Auto-feed water system and a 5-gallon water jug for hassle-free water smoking.
  • Removable water pan is easy to clean.
  • Built for wet and dry smoking! One of the few box smokers on the market that can smoke jerky.
  • 4 stainless steel cooking grates 18.5″ x 22.5″ spaced 6″ apart give you 11.56 sq. ft. of cooking space. These grates will not rust, making your smoker maintenance easier and prevent rust contamination on your meat.
  • Painted with black enamel paint on the outside. Upgrade to fire engine red, John Deere green, or blue. The inside of the cooking area is unpainted and can be upgraded to stainless steel interior.
  • Positive lock latches keep your doors secure.
  • The built-in Guru adapter makes it easy to mount your temp controller if you want to.
  • The handy ash pan and fire basket slide out for adding fuel and cleaning the smoker after use. There is a grate in the bottom of the fire basket to let the ashes drop into the ash pan, so the fire burns more efficiently.
  • The slide out grease pan under the cooking grates catches your grease for easy clean-up. It also works as a charcoal grill pan for turning this beauty into a grill!
  • It rolls on 2 flat-free tires and 2 locking casters. No more flat tires.
  • Stainless steel handles add a sharp finishing touch.
  • 2 thermometers on the smoking chamber door makes it easy to keep a tab on the temperature.
  • Cast iron spin vents at the bottom of the firebox give you precise draft control.

Usage Recommendations

For smoking, we recommend using non-petroleum based starters. Residue in the smoke from these starters can contaminate the cooking box, potentially effecting the flavor of the meat. The use of a torch or paper and kindling is most effective.

Use approximately 20 lbs. of charcoal in the fire box to get started. Once the meat is placed in the smoker, you can add wood in the fire box for smoking. From there, you can use either wood or charcoal. Add wood or charcoal as needed to maintain the correct temperature. 20 pounds of charcoal lasts for 8 hours cooking at 250 degrees F.

Fill the water pan and then fill the jug at the beginning of your cook. It will take about 5 gallons of water to cook for 12 hours.

    Great Smoker…Easy to maintain temp. Whether I’m burning briquets, lump or wood it provides a steady burn. A full fire box will get me 8-10 hours of cook time. Simply a Solid cooker.

    Took about 4 try’s to get use to it. It has lots of room and I can set it and forget it. I’ve had it loaded and I’ve done small fish on it and they all have been good. This is not your box store built smoker. It is built to last! Like all of their product’s. ( I have their ts120, bbq42, pr60, bbq36g )My boys will be getting this after I can’t be doing it. Had the BX50 over years and hundreds of lb.’s of food been cooked on it. Friends and family all ask me to smoke their stuff. I have two friends that come over to smoke with me. They like doing so much now they have their own to smoke on. If you are thinking about it, do it. Its fun and it will last. And the best part, every one ask you to there party. Sure you may have to cook something.

    I really like the BX50 , but have had it just over a year and the water tray has completely rusted out and does not hold water. I was told after the fact it was a maintenance issue but I was never told you should oil the box each time you use it. Other than that I really enjoy using the smoker and have no other complaints .
