  ProQ Excel Hot and Cold Smoker Set DESCRIPTION
  In stock from 4 August 2014


By far the biggest and best vertical hot food smoker, the ProQ Excel, now just got even better! We've combined this impressive food smoker with the new ProQ Cold Smoke Generator to provide you with a total food smoking kit, capable of both hot and cold smoking, not forgetting all the other cooking methods the ProQ Excel offers including roasting, steaming and barbecuing. Our set also includes 2 x 1kg packs of wood supplies, one in a dust form ideal for cold smoking and the other in a chip form for hot smoking. A hardwood and a fruitwood flavour will be supplied. So, aside from your food and the charcoal to heat your smoker (also available from Hot Smoked incidentally) for hot smoking - you are ready to smoke.

The ProQ Excel is now completely porcelain coated and this, together with its impressive line-up of practical food smoking features, makes this an unbeatable piece of kit. Features include 3 vents in the base for increased control over temperature, temperature probe eyelets at each food smoking level and useful handles on the grill racks. As the top of the range in the ProQ family, the Excel stands 1.2m tall and offers excellent capacity in two food smoking stackers with a diameter of 50cm. You have the option to reduce the capacity by removing a stacker for a particular food smoking session, or removing the stackers completely to transform into a roomy kettle bbq. The Excel is supplied with a hanging rack as standard, ideal for smoking fish or other cuts of meat vertically. The secret of much of the successful results you can achieve in the Excel is down to the water pan which not only suppresses the heat form your charcoal fire in the base, but also infuses the process with moisture flavoured with wine, spirits and fresh herbs of your choice.

For cold smoking, you simply place the ProQ Cold Smoke Generator in the empty charcoal basket and dispense with the water bowl. This amazing - and on the face of it rather small - contraption is filled with wood dust so that the metal rim is still visible and then lit from an outer corner. Once the dust starts to smoulder it burns slowly around the mesh sided coil and will deliver aromatic wood smoke - without the heat - for up to 10 hours with just one 100g batch of wood dust. The smoke production is intense and you can cold smoke cheeses in as little as 2 hours with larger cuts of meat taking up to the full 10 hours.

Our own Hot Smoked wood dust and wood chips are all either FSC approved or sourced from sustainable, managed estates and they are available in a wide choice of flavours. With your hot and cold smoking set we normally supply an oak and apple option - however, if you have a particular flavour requirement, just let us know in the customer comments section when you place your order.
