Backwoods Smoker, High Quality BBQ Smokers For Any Level of Expertise

Welcome to the web home of Backwoods Smoker, where we have been smoking the competition for over 20 years! We created this site to try to give you all the resources you would need to educate yourself about our brand of cookers, and to interact with our awesome owner community.

Backwoods smokers are upright water cookers. Using a patented double wall construction, we have put high quality insulation into every cooker. This gives you superior heat control in your pit. Because of our double wall design, you can walk up to a Backwoods Smoker which is cranking 400 degrees of heat into the pit, and touch the outside of the cooker which is still cool!

If you have questions about our cookers, fully explore this site first, nine times out of ten, you can find the answer that you are looking for on our forums, or in the pages contained in this site.

Thanks for dropping by to visit us, happy smokin'!



Three Unique Features


Insulated Walls

Backwoods Smokers have insulated double walls that allow smoke to travel up into your pit, but does not allow heat to escape, giving you superior heat control. The inside of your cooker will be smoking hot, the outside will be cool to the touch!

Water Barrier

Backwoods Smokers are all built with a water pan between your fire pit and smoke pit, creating a moisture barrier which gives you that excellent indirect heat needed for smoking foods to perfection. It also puts moisture into your pit, keeping meats from drying out.


Gaskets and Latches

Each Backwoods Smoker comes with gaskets on the doors, and high quality latches to help you to minimize heat and smoke loss.  It also helps you to get more economy out of your charcoal by allowing to burn slower with less oxygen.
