    Thoughts on the Camp Chef 24" Smoke Vault

    Hello PitMasters!

    I'm considering replacing my electric smoker with a Camp Chef 24" gas smoker. I'm wondering if folks have used this smoker and what they think of it? Also, will the gas smoker produce a smoke ring? From my reading on AR I think the answer is yes.

    Thanks and smoke on!

    I wish I could comment about this but my camp chef 24 vault is boxed up waiting for me to get home, ( 4 more weeks ). As for the smoke ring my reading says yes also.

      Hi Stevo,
      I've had my SV 24 for a couple of years now and have been very happy with it. I've smoked all variety of things on it, from quick fish and sausage
      smokes to 16 hour brisket cooks. It does indeed produce some very nice smoke rings. It has plenty of room so you can load it up. As a gasser it is very easy to use. I like the convenience of being able to be up and smoking within a few minutes of turning it on. It is pretty stingy on the gas use, as well.

      Among the few negative things I can say are that it isn't insulated, so temperature control will depend a lot on your environment. Also, I don't find the vents very helpful for fine temperature control. You just need to finesse the flame control on the unit. Once you get it where you want it, though, the temperature holds pretty well.

      Hope this helps.

          You're very welcome. I should have also added that thermometer that comes with the SV isn't very helpful. The one
          on my unit reads between 35 and 50 deg low compared to a Maverick ET-732. But that shouldn't be a surprise.

        Here are some results with my Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24" that I traded a new electric Masterbuilt back for.
