The 10 Best Ceramic Smokers
This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Ceramic grills utilize dense fireboxes to gather and radiate incredible amounts of heat created from charcoal, wood and, sometimes, gas. These versatile appliances serve a variety of functions, and have certain advantages over everyday grills and smokers. One of these models will satisfy almost any barbecue aficionado, but be aware that, for the most part, they're extremely heavy.

We were impressed with all the Icon Grills models, as they really bring a touch of modern craftsmanship to this over 3000-year-old appliance. The 900 Series is particularly impressive, though super costly. Their gas inserts are nice, but because that real BBQ mystique comes mostly from the aromatics that drip from the meat, only to burn on the coals and evaporate, flavor-lovers should stick with natural fuel. The Broil King is one of the few that almost certainly won't ever really break, as it's only lined with high-quality ceramic. Therefore it's also pretty light. Primo is probably the most well-known, and they have a 20-year replacement policy, which will require you to prove that you've destroyed the cracked one before replacing it (mostly for safety's sake). And the Komodo is just this side of a full-size stone oven; in fact, it would make one heck of a pizza party.
