Introducing the Flaming Coals Offset Smoker
A video introduction to the features and benefits of Flaming Coals' Texas-style Offset Smoker.
How to Assemble the Flaming Coals Offset Smoker
A video run-through of how to unpack and setup the Flaming Coals Offset Smoker. To help us get a handle on the best way to approach its assembly, we built one a couple of times but in different ways.
- This is a really sturdy beast, so we strongly recommend that you don't attempt to assemble it by yourself.
- Don't destroy the cardboard packaging while unpacking the smoker. It will come in very handy for placing underneath parts, etc. during assembly.
- For us, following the Owners Manual at the same time as reviewing this video made understanding the assembly steps much easier - the video has a few helpful cheats, too.
- Not only is this a sturdy beast, the various parts fit tightly together once assembled - as they should. Based on our experience, you'll need to keep the leg and firebox bolts loose (including the 6x that hold the two halves of the firebox together) until after the Firebox Bracket has been attached to the Firebox (Owners Manual, Step 14c / Video, 2m:35s); then tighten everything up. We found that taking weight off the legs by lying the smoker on its back, on cardboard packaging, taking care not to damage the exterior, helped greatly at this stage.
- If the bolt holes on the Firebox Plate and Firebox are slightly out of alignment, a screwdriver shaft inserted between them should enable you to gently lever them into place.
- It looks (and you'll feel) awesome once built!
How to Season the Flaming Coals Offset Smoker
It is really important that your offset smoker is properly seasoned before first use. This video takes you through the steps of seasoning your Flaming Coals Offset Smoker.
How to Clean the Flaming Coals Offset Smoker
Keeping any smoker/barbecue/grill free from grease or fat deposits and stale meat juices not only extends their working lives but also avoids tainting the food with unpleasant odours. Importantly, it also reduces the risk of a grease/fat fire! The important thing is to strike balance between keeping it clean and avoiding removal of the smoky seasoning that builds up over time. This video shows you how.
