The CTO-TQ is the smaller counterpart of the heavy-duty CTO Smoker. The TQ stands for three-quarters - meaning it’s ¾ the size of the original CTO. Don’t let the size of this smaller smoker scare you, the CTO-TQ is just as consistent, durable and heavy-duty as it’s larger counterpart.
The CTO-TQ is the ultimate multi-use smoker. Unlike most gas smokers in the market, the CTO-TQ Smoker provides you with the best of both worlds. The CTO-TQ Smoker gives you the option of cooking with propane/ or natural gas alone, or you can simultaneously cook with both gas and charcoal/wood - and it’s easy to use! Simply hook up your gas, load up the pullout firebox with wood chunks or charcoal and turn on the smoker. The gas will blow into the wood/charcoal, effortlessly igniting the wood/charcoal. Whether you’re feeling the need for a smokier taste in your food or want the ease of cooking with gas, the CTO-TQ multi-use smoker offers both options so you don’t have to choose.
Innovative Ventilation System
What makes the CTO-TQ multi-use smoker unique is its innovative built-in convection fan system - exclusive to Ole Hickory Pits Smokers. With the built-in convection fan system (located on the bottom), the heat/smoke circulates from the front to the back similar to the heat movement used in convection ovens. This innovative system allows for a quicker cook and assists in keeping the temperature of the smoker steady and consistent throughout the cook. The consistency of the CTO-TQ Smoker allows you to set it and forget it for hours! With the CTO-TQ multi-use smoker by your side, the days of having to babysit your cook are over.
The CTO-TQ multi-use smoker is built to last; With a heavy-duty 22g stainless steel exterior, you won't have to worry about the CTO-TQ smoker rusting up, this versatile smoker has been designed to withstand standard wear and tear. The interior walls of the CTO-TQ are made of 12g steel (100% welded +inspected seams) amd are fully insulated and thermostat-controlled (up to 325F degrees) to provide you with a lifetime of quality smoking. Consistent, versatile, easy to use and built like a tank; the CTO-TQ multi-use smoker is perfect for any BBQ enthusiast who wants the ease of gas and the authentic taste of wood/charcoal.
