We design and build smokehouses with features that greatly improve cooking results, times and yields. To accomplish this, we are meticulous about reducing turbulence and maintaining laminar airflow. Our smokehouses were the first to employ tapered walls at the floor level. This feature facilitates better circulation at the bottom of the oven. Alternating dampers are aerodynamically designed to provide smooth airflow, resulting in more efficient use of motor horsepower and better air circulation in the cook chamber. In addition, alternating dampers are adjustable and programmable to ensure proper formation of the “breakpoint” in the smokehouse.
