What Is a Commercial Meat Smoker?

A commercial meat smoker is a small type of smokehouse where meat or fish is cured with smoke. Traditional food smokers are made of concrete or hardened mud and can be considered a small building. Modern commercial smokehouses can be likened to small heavy-duty safes or cabinets/closets that are made of heavy-duty steel. Meat, fish, and other food are hung on steel skewers or hook hangers and are left inside the commercial smoke house to be cured.

So what are the usual food items that are processed inside commercial smoke houses? Various types of red meat (mostly game meats that include venison as well as pork and beef), various types of cheeses, and various types of fish (salmon, trout, and the like).

A Brief History of Smokehouses Before the Advent of Commercial Smokehouses

Before the advent of commercial smoke houses, traditional smokehouses served as both meat smokers and meat storage, mostly for groups, families, and communities of people. Food and meat preservation was either done by salt curing or extended cold smoking for several weeks or months at a time. Smokehouses were, more often than not, secured to prevent animals and thieves from gaining access to the food.

In other words, traditional smokehouses—unlike a modern professional meat smoker that is a lot smaller and essentially resembles more of a safe or closet/cabinet—were typically a big room or a small square unpainted wooden structure usually located in the backyard. A traditional smokehouse is constructed as a small enclosed outbuilding fitted with a vent, designed with a single entrance and no windows. Typically, it also features a gabled or pyramid-style roof. Communal and traditional commercial smoke houses, however are usually bigger than those constructed for a single residence or estate.

Who Will Benefit from a Commercial Smoke House?

Commercial food-service businesses that want to prepare, serve, and sell their own smoked meat, fish, and/or cheeses will benefit immensely from commercial smokehouses. Nowadays, professional meat smoker units can help business owners produce high-quality smoked food quickly and conveniently, ensuring more yields and more profits. For example, our commercial smoke houses can produce one hundred pounds of lean and juicy barbecue ribs within forty-five minutes.

We offer quality professional meat smoker units that are also ideal for curing and smoking various food items that include fish and cheeses.
