Why is the Yoder Loaded Wichita the Best Offset Smoker on the Market?
Precision Handcrafted Quality
The Yoder Loaded Wichita is American-made in Kansas, USA, with precision handcrafted quality. This smoker is made from the highest quality materials, and the attention to detail in the craftsmanship is evident in every single component.
First things first, the size. 1,610 square inches is MASSIVE - more than double the cooking surface of most top-of-the-line pellet & charcoal grills. But it doesn’t stop there, the Loaded Wichita adds the 3 most popular options as standard features, including the cooking door counterweight, heat management plate, and 2nd level slide-out shelf. These features and the huge cook chamber provide backyard grillers ample room to cook large cuts with precision, or simply provide some extra breathing room when you’re chasing the perfect end result for BBQ. Let’s dig into each one in a bit more detail:
Cooking Door Counterweight
The cooking door counterweight allows for easy opening and closing of the cooking chamber, even when loaded with meat. With such a thick gauge of steel, the entire unit is SUPER heavy. That includes the door, which is much easier to open with the counterweight installed.
Heat Management Plate
The heat management plate is essential for even heat distribution throughout the cooking chamber, which means you can avoid hot spots that can cause uneven cooking. Even heating means you’ll experience fewer large fluctuations in temperature and will make much more efficient use of your fuel.
2nd Level Slide-Out Shelf
The 2nd level slide-out shelf provides additional space to cook your meat and is SO easy to access. This feature is especially helpful when cooking large quantities - it makes basting/mopping meat at the back a breeze. It also acts as a great resting spot for meat in your production queue - a roasting pan on the second level is a great spot to place items for warmth before you serve.
Dual-Damper Draft Control System
The Wichita's dual-damper draft control system helps manage the perfect balance of heat and thin blue smoke for the perfect combination of doneness and smoky essence. This feature makes it easy for backyard cooks to become true pitmasters, and it helps take seasoned pitmasters’ finesse to a level they never thought possible.
