I'm looking at putting two in the kitchen I'm remodeling. Custom building cabinets to hide them with bathroom vents installed to pipe smoke outside.

Electric type smoker

What are your thoughts on putting them indoors?

I think when you open the door to check/baste/remove, you'll smoke up your kitchen.

Commercial kitchens do it all the time. Obviously you gotta have the ventilation done.

Will they be on an exterior wall? Have you ever had a fire in a smoker. Would be hard to handle in a cabinet.

The answer can be found with a simple question - Are you married ? If not then have at it - if you smoke up the house or burn it down it is all you - if you have a wife and you smoke up the house or burn it down it will still be all your fault but it will be much more painful listening to her for the rest of your life. Your move. If you choose to install I see an insurance claim in your near future, when the company does not pay because of the improperly installed "smoker" do not be surprised. Keep your smoker outdoors.


If I put my wife inside a high fence will her rack get bigger ?

I think itís doable but heed the warnings above.. also would rethink the ventilation. Not sure Iíd use bathroom vents.
That said....I like to do my smoke and bbq outside. I enjoy the time spent. Wife runs the kitchen, I run the Porch...
Heck we even bbq at -30..


Just gonna send it...

Iíve done it in my garage with the chimney piped out the window, it works fine but the smoke smell lasts for weeks.

If not UL approved it could be a homeowner insurance issue. Believe I would ask my agent first.

(this) I just lost a new construction home two weeks ago. The investigation is April 9 and 10. I guarantee you would not be paid if they found something like this that was not designed for in home use.

technically the early German settlers to Wisconsin did it but they built a big masonry chimney up the center of the house that had the fire place and smoke room all in the chimney an example of this is preserved at the German settlement in Old world Wisconsin living history site.


but certainly not common in modern houses.

Every smoker I've ever had is gross in short order and needs replaced to not be a biohazzard. I'm not sure I'd want one behind my cabinet.

I want to build one on my porch and feed it cold smoke from a fire down the hill via underground flu popping up through the porch.

I'd set it up like a Jenn-Air for the proper ventilation. Sure wouldn't put it in a wood cabinet.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

If you want to cook in one in inclement weather build a small pavilion right outside the back door. There is good reason nobody offers a built in smoker in a new home. I suppose you could build one from brick like the pizza ovens you see in Brooklyn. Buy or build a steel door for it. I would not want one of those metal ones. None I am aware of is designed for inside use. You will be able to smell smoke 3 months after the last time you used it.

You want to think about cleaning also. They get a build up of black tar on the inside. No way you clean one inside your house with out getting a nasty mess in the house too.

If you do it surround them with rock wool and metal Incase of a fire might help contain it for a little while.

Building code inspectors and insurance companies would probably frown upon this idea.

I have seen commercial smokers that mounted on an exterior wall. They were stainless and fired by charcoal. My nephew cooked at a rib place that had two. They vented to the outside. Probably held 100 lbs of meat each.
