Questions & Answers for Oster Oster 16-Quart Smoker & Roaster Oven, Red

Question

Outdoor use only???

I bought this product and planned to roast a turkey but, after reading the manual and instructions, it seems it can only be used outdoors. Is this true if you are not smoking meat?

The outside of it does seem to get hotter than my really old electric roaster. It may have to operate at higher temperatures to get the wood chips to smoke. We used it in our garage with the door only slightly raised and that seemed to work fine. The smoker part of it works really well.

You do plug it in, it has a very small cord though so it needs to be close to an outlet or you'll need an extension cord.

the best way to do it is to brown it first. i put olive oil on mine and cooked it on mad for about the first half hour then turned it down to 325. gives it a great golden color.

Question

Several questions...

The size of approx 24" X 18" X 10" suggests that you could smoke a large brisket in this. Are these the dimensions of the entire unit or the inside cooking pan?

The specs indicate the capacity is 16 quarts - what is the capacity in pounds of meat?

The picture shows a turkey inside, but I don't see how you could put the lid on. Is the turkey setting on something or is it actually on the bottom of the roster?

Does it come in any color other than red?

Does a recipe and an instruction book come with it?

Interior dimensions: 17"x11.5"x5.5"(sidewall not counting domed lid which maybe gives you another 3")
Box says 20 pound turkey.
Directions for turkey says place on rack which sits approx 1 " above bottom.
I think only red.
Yes, recipe and directions included.

answer 2
We put a 26 lb. turkey in it with the bird sitting on the little roasting rack with no problems--the lid didn't touch the turkey, although it almost did. I would guess the 16 quarts is the liquid measure of the inside pan. It has a removable metal pan with a separate rack to keep the meat up off the fat that cooks out. It comes with an instruction book and cooking time chart for various types and sizes of meat. I love it! The smoker part really does work!
