Overview of Features
With the Camp Chef SmokePro LUX grill and smoker, you will be able to master the secrets of the best barbecue chefs in the world, and you will become an expert in the art of smoking meats. It is super-easy to use, and the digital controls ensure that you are going to be able to grill and smoke meats to absolute perfection. Some of the best features of this grill and smoker include:
The hopper will hold up to 18 pounds of pellets, so you shouldn’t have to keep scooping more in until your meat is cooked. One bag will be more than enough to smoke an entire turkey, a rack of ribs, etc.
Camp Chef Pellets
When you use Camp Chef pellets (purchased separately) with this grill and smoker, you get longer cooking time. This is because Camp Chef pellets burn hotter than other pellets. Also, they are made from pure hardwood, so you can enjoy a natural, wood smoked flavor.
Ease of Assembly
We love that this grill is so easy to assemble. The instructions are clear and straightforward, and you can have it all set up and ready to use within an hour. Make sure you have pellets, so you can start using it right away.
The temperature controller actually works (not all grills have accurate controllers), and it is extremely accurate, with few fluctuations in temperature, for perfectly even cooking.
The one down side we have noticed to this griller and smoker is that you don’t always get that rich, smoky flavor. In fact, the smoke flavor can be rather light, but this can be remedied with trial and error, and finding the pellets that work for you.
How to Use the Camp Chef SmokePro LUX
One of the best tips we can give you about smoking meats with the Camp Chef SmokePro LUX is to smoke at the 300° or higher range. Yes, most recipes will say to cook at lower temperatures, which is fine, if you like a lot of smoke. But, if you don’t want too much smoke, we recommend the slightly higher temperature.

It also has an under-grill storage area that will hold bags of pellets and grilling tools.
