Wood Sample Kit

20lb Wood Sample Kit

The Cookshack Wood Sample Kit (WD100) includes 5 lbs. each hickory, mesquite, apple and cherry for a total of 20 lbs. of wood.

Hickory chunks are a traditional favorite, with a sweet smoke that is good for just about everything. Mesquite chunks are a brasher, bolder flavor, which are great with beef. Apple wood chunks are a mild fruitwood, that pair well with pork and poultry. Cherry wood chunks have a strong flavor. Try it with duck or prime rib of beef.

If

you are unsure how much wood to use in your Cookshack smoker, we recommend erring on the side of http://www.cialispharmaciefr24.com/acheter-cialis-en-chine/ too little wood when loading your smoker. A small piece of wood puts out an amazing amount of smoke. If you don’t get as much smoke as you want, you can always add more smoke with the next load. If you put too much smoke on a load, you will not want to eat the food! Too little is better than too much. Cookshack wood chunks are approximately 2″x2″x3″. Chunks of this size are necessary to supply enough wood resin to expose to the

heat source for good flavoring.

Just add them to your wood box and get smoking today!

What is the cost of operating a commercial smoker?

Knowing the cost of operating a commercial smoker is important for your business.  It is one of many factors that need to be considered in determining profit margins.  Cookshack smokers and charbroilers are efficient especially when you consider the amount of meat and vegetables that you can smoke during one cook cycle.  There design will not dry or shrink meat and will give you higher yields.

Below are two charts to consider in determing your energy costs using Cookshack commercial equipment.  These are based on average kwh figures and will vary depending on your geographic region.  The wood and pellet costs are based on Cookshack Wood Chunks and Pellets including average shipping costs. The first chart is based on using the equipment at the highest temperature settings available for that unit. This would be the maximum estimated cost

you would see using this equipment. The second chart is based on using the equipment at a lower or average rate of temperature for that unit. This would be most likely where the units would operate most of the time.

For the electric smokers, you use electricity to power the controller and unit while the wood is used for flavoring.  In the pellet-fired smokers and charbroiler, electricity is only needed to run the controller, fans, and augers.  The wood pellets provide

the heat and flavor.  Consequently, in the electric units the majority of the cost is from https://www.viagrasansordonnancefr.com/viagra-achat/ electricity and in the pellet-fired units the majority of the cost is from the pellets.

Cookshack Releases New IQ5 Controller

Cookshack’s innovative technology for smoker ovens will change the face of barbecue with the release of the new IQ5 Controller.

The IQ5 controller is the newest technology in commercial cooking, smoking, and holding. Restaurants, food trucks, and backyard chefs alike enjoy sleep with the ability to set a smoker, leave and come back in the morning with a day’s worth of smoked foods.

The IQ5 controller allows for up to three stages of cooking, including smoke, cook and hold steps. Since pellets produce more heat under 180°F, all three of these stages are important. The smoke stage adds the smoke flavor, the cook stage gets foods to their required internal temperatures while the hold stage allows the meat to stay hot while sitting in the smoker until the food is ready to be served.

IQ5 Controller on SM260

The new IQ5 controller on the SM260

Consistency is easier than ever to achieve. The IQ5 controller includes a digital readout, meat probe attachment, up to three stages of cooking options and USB port to download and keep track of cooking cycles. With the IQ5 controller, you have the option to download your smoking, cooking and holding logs to a FAT formatted USB flash drive. The IQ5 Controller will maintain 1023 cycles which is 512 hours of cook time.  This controller is standard equipment on Cookshack commercial smoker ovens with a capacity of 100 to 750 pounds.  Options are available for upgrading your current equipment from the IQ4 controller to the new IQ5 controller.

The Cookshack IQ5 Controller also has, for the first time in Cookshack history, the ability to program your own pre-set buttons. Eight pre-set buttons come programmed with standard meat cuts such as brisket, ribs, and prime rib.  However, changing the presets is as easy as setting your times and temperatures then pressing the coordinating pre-set in less than five seconds! Set yourself apart from the competition with this great new feature.

For more information about the new IQ5 Controller or any Cookshack Commercial or Competition Smoker, please give us a call at 1.800.423.0698.  You can also view a video on our Cookshack YouTube Channel or website to see the new controller in action!
