We’re so proud to announce the Kalamazoo Smoker Cabinet made Popular Science’s Best of What’s New list for 2017. This selection names the most transformative products of the year, according to one of today’s most revered science and technology publications.

“The Best of What’s New awards honor the innovations that shape the future,” says Joe Brown, editor-in-chief, Popular Science. “From life-saving technology to incredible space engineering to gadgets that are just breath-takingly cool, this is the best of what’s new.”

The Kalamazoo smoker fits right in this list as it reflects our deep heritage of innovation, seen consistently across our whole collection. It’s our unique take on traditional American barbecue, which uses gravity-feed charcoal technology with an insulated and sealed design for maximum efficiency. In fact, a seven-pound load of charcoal can keep the smoker at 225 degrees for up to 16 hours, producing delicious results each and every time. Available in a freestanding cart version or an under-counter model, which is the first and only one of its kind.

“We applied our proven expertise in live-fire cooking to this new product category, and we worked intently and carefully to create a smoker truly worthy of the Kalamazoo name,” explains Russ Faulk, Kalamazoo’s chief designer and head of product. “It’s a sleek smoker that matches the modern design aesthetic of our entire collection and retains our signature performance.”

Released in early 2017, development first began in late 2013 by our R&D team. They performed rigorous testing to ensure superior performance and quality control consistent with the Kalamazoo brand.

Innovation is at the heart of every Kalamazoo product. Each part of the collection – from grills and pizza ovens to refrigeration and cabinetry – represents a significant departure from the established norm. Our passion for outdoor cooking and our fiercely independent design philosophy drive us to establish new industry benchmarks. Consequently, our list of exclusives and innovations speaks for itself.
