ProQ Excel Elite V4
The biggest smoker in the ProQ range, with a 50cm diameter and standing 1.2m in height, the Excel has a whopping cooking capacity of 30kg. Still offering all the modular features which are the hallmark of the range, the Excel just does everything a little bit bigger. This smoker/BBQ successfully bridges both back garden and commercial smoking requirements and is popular with competition teams, chefs, pop up catering and pubs. For use at home adjust the smoker size to suit your cooking project from two tiers of cooking, to one, to a sizeable kettle BBQ.
Consisting of a base unit with charcoal basket, two cooking chambers and a lid, the Excel offers versatile cooking options including hot smoking, steaming, roasting, grilling and, using the ProQ Cold Smoke Generator, cold smoking.
The robust porcelain finish provides excellent heat retention whilst multiple air vents allows you to control both burn rate and temperature, ideal for low and slow hot smoking conditions. The water pan feature adds moisture to your long cooks and buffers the charcoal heat source for indirect cooking.
