Our Smokers


The Egg
Kamado Joe

Our journey at Cookshak began with the Kamado Joe Egg Smoker—a culinary gem that laid the foundation for our dedication to innovation. Despite its modest size, this smoker wielded a ceramic shell, ensuring impeccable heat retention and precise temperature control. Its unique airflow system orchestrated an even circulation of smoke, allowing for versatile cooking styles, from low-and-slow smoking to high-heat grilling. Chosen with precision by Sean, this gem became a canvas for crafting culinary masterpieces, offering a tantalizing preview of the extraordinary BBQ experiences that awaited at Cookshak.

The Workhorse
Vertical Smoker

As the demand for our smoked delights surged, we introduced the Vertical Smoker—a workhorse that stood tall to accommodate numerous pieces of meat simultaneously. Designed with multiple racks, it became instrumental in meeting the increasing appetite for our daily restaurant favorites like turkey, brisket, and tri-tip. The Vertical Smoker, with its versatility, not only fulfilled larger orders but also became a staple in events and catering, providing the extra space needed to deliver the smoky goodness our patrons had come to love. The rich, smoky aroma and exquisite flavor became a daily indulgence for our patrons, solidifying the Vertical Smoker's role as an integral part of our culinary ensemble.

Big Bertha
Our Offset Smoker

And then came Big Bertha, our Offset Smoker—the largest and most ambitious addition to Cookshak. This culinary marvel was designed to handle multiple briskets, turkeys, or pulled pork butts simultaneously, infusing each cut with an unmatched depth of flavor. Sean's vision was clear: an offset smoker that could cater to large gatherings, becoming the heartbeat of our grand celebrations.

Sean's choice of the Offset Smoker was deliberate; it maximizes efficiency without compromising quality, maintaining the authenticity and richness that define Cookshak. From succulent briskets to juicy turkeys, our offset smoker is a versatile maestro that enhances every dish it touches. Whether it's weddings, corporate events, or family reunions, Sean envisioned making our offset smoker the pièce de résistance for any occasion, especially for those seeking top-notch catering services. Curious to witness Sean's vision in action? Visit Cookshak and experience the mesmerizing dance of smoke and flavor. Our commitment to excellence extends beyond the plate, and our offset smoker, the grandest of the trio, is poised to redefine your BBQ expectations and elevate your catering experience.
