Kingfisher Kookers - BBQ Smokers

I have been looking for a towable smoker to replace my 7 x 16 enclosed trailer. Kingfisher Kookers makes a nice rotisserie smoker that's rapidly moving up my list of favorites. My choice is between two Kingfisher models: The BT Komination rotisserie and the Commercial Smoker rotisserie. Here are some features of both from the Kingfisher website.

The BT model weighs 500 lbs.
  • The smoking chamber is 30 x 34 x 40 and contains four trays.
  • The trays are 10 x 37 for a total tray surface of 1,480 square inches.
  • Each tray will hold approximately four briskets.
  • The smoker has a wood storage box, an integrated work table, and a warming rack.
  • Additional cooking racks can be purchased that essentially double meat capacity.
The Commercial model weighs 1,075 lbs.
  • The smoking/cooking chamber is 42" x 48" x 48" and contains six trays.
  • Seven to nine sides of ribs (3 1/2 downs) can be placed on each tray by using rib racks.
  • A tray will hold five to six trimmed briskets.
  • Whole hogs, dressed (up to 70 pounds) and trussed can be placed on each tray.
  • Trays 10" x 44" create a total tray surface of 2,772 square inches.
  • The firebox area is 24" x 16" x 16". The firebox will hold split wood up to 24 inches in length.
  • The oven is 9" x 18" x 42", and has a safety latch on the door.
  • The top of the oven serves as a warming area for sauces and marinades.
  • The available warming surface is 24" x 42".
  • There is a work table, 30" x 42", twelve inches above the warming surface, that includes a handle for moving the unit when it is off the towing tongue and on the caster wheel.
  • Built on a trailer axle, with springs and tires, towing tongue and caster wheel, is road ready.

Kingfisher has a nice network of dealers too.
