    All our smokers and accessories are media blasted to bare metal, primed, powder coated and baked to 400 degrees to ensure your drums finish will last for many years to come; even in a Canadian climate !


    The vertical cook design lets the juices from the meat to drip down to the coals, creating a smoky mist to kiss the meat as it is exhausted through the vent stack. This eliminates any need for a water pan system.This cooker excels at cooking “hot and fast” and can cook ribs in less than 3 hours, pork shoulder roasts and briskets in less than 5 hours with a satisfying smoky flavor without having to stay awake all night. Its temperature is easy to control and gives consistent results time after time.

    The BarrelBossQ will reinvent the way you cook - from vegetables to pizza, chicken to ribs, brisket to steaks. Your options are endless and so are your capabilities. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, the BarrelBossQ True North is for you, no exceptions!


    The True North external accessories are bolted onto the drum body.
