The KC is designed to enable pitmasters to compete in a KCBS competition (or similar event) on a single smoker, whether you prefer to cook “low and slow” or “hot and fast”. To our knowledge, the KC is the 1st insulated vertical cabinet smoker on the market with an extended temperature range from 200F to 400F. It’s also the perfect size for the backyard cook who occasionally smokes for large parties.
The KC incorporates all of the classic features of a 270 Smoker, providing best-in-class temperature uniformity and stability that enables you to Cook with Confidence! Patented 270 Smokers convection design with dual-chimney chamber, dual-wall 16 gauge steel, and 1″ ceramic mineral wool insulation (rated at 1200F) enable worry-free smoking in any weather conditions.
- Rear firebox door with sliding vent for temperature control. (Optional adapter plate can be ordered if you prefer to use an electronic temp controller, however, we highly recommend you try smoking on your 270 without a controller first — the 270 Smoker performs best without one!) The charcoal basket holds 15 lbs of lump charcoal with a typical burn time of 15 hrs+.
