Man standing next to a pellet smoker


A pellet smoker makes smoking a bit easier by automatically feeding wood pellets from the hopper into the fire. That's right, a pellet smoker feeds itself, so you can focus on feeding everyone else. It's easy to maintain an even cooking temperature on a pellet smoker, and the wide range of flavoured pellets available means you can have a lot of fun experimenting.


1Add pellets to the hopper

Plug the smoker into a power point and place your pellets into the hopper.

2Set the temperature

Select your temperature on the dial. The auger feed will begin to turn, feeding wood pellets into the fire chamber. The igniter will begin. You'll hear a noise to let you know that it's ready.

3Start cooking!

Your pellet smoker is now ready to use! Like an oven, it'll control its own temperature and keep it regulated.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
