Enjoying drinks with friends on the patio and don’t want to be disturbed? Use the remote control to turn the smoker on and off or set the temperature from up to 100 feet away. With the remote–which comes with its own belt clip–you can make fine adjustments without leaving your seat. As an alternative, you can control the smoker with the traditional push button digital control panel, which offers a 24-hour timer with an automatic shutoff to keep your food from drying out.
