Smokehouse Products’ Big Chief Smoker is perhaps the most widely purchased electric smoker on the market. It has been more than 50 years since the Little Chief hit the market and quickly became the most popular smoker among sportsmen to smoke their salmon, trout, and steelhead.
Fast forward all these years later and consumers who want to smoke their fish and game can choose the Big Chief Smoker or Little Chief, front load or top load, electric or gas. In addition to these traditional products Smokehouse Products makes flavored wood chips, chunks, and pellets in a variety of flavors that work great with their smokers, and wood grilling planks.
The Big Chief Smoker has earned our coveted Editors’ Choice Award more than once and was recently given the “Tried and True” award in the latest 2021 Annual Gear Guide by Fish Alaska. We appreciate that it maintains a consistent low temperature needed to smoke fish perfectly. And it can handle Alaska-sized jobs with a 50-pound capacity per smoker batch. We prefer the wood chips and our favorite flavors are Apple Wood and Cherry Wood.
Smokehouse Products makes jerky and sausage supplies including an electric grinder, jerky gun, brines and mixes. They have developed the Smoke Chief Cold Smoke Generator that attaches to any grill. And most recently they invented the Mimi Moto, which is a wood-fired portable cook stove. Each of these items performs well and have been featured in our Gear Review in past editions.
