The Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24" is the big brother to the smaller Camp Chef Smoke Vault 18. It is a big vertical cabinet style smoker that is no stranger to smoking delicious food. It is an extremely versatile unit.
It has a huge temperature range from 150 degrees for long low and slow cooking all the way up to 500 degrees. Which is enough to cook a pizza or even bake bread. However, do keep in mind Camp Chef do not recommend you take the temperature this high as it can start to warp and bend the metal.
It has the ability to be converted into natural gas really easily with the natural gas conversion kit, this is great for those who don't plan on moving the unit around and want it to be a permanent fixture in the backyard. Natural gas is also cheaper, easier and (in my opinion) delivers a better cook than propane.
You have enough room to smoke up to 8 racks of ribs at once, several whole chickens or even a couple of turkeys. Lets check out the key features of the Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24.

What I Liked
What I Didn't Like
I think the Camp Chef Smoke Vault is one of my favorite gas smokers out there right now. Straight out of the box it is a piece of cake to assemble. You will also find that it has a higher build quality than some of the older Camp Chef models out there.
One of the major perks of this smoker is how easy it is to convert into natural gas, this is a fantastic option for those of us who are not planning on moving the smoker and don't like messing around with propane bottles.
The Camp Chef Smoke Vault is a great smoker for anyone who doesn't mind spending a little more for a quality product that delivers quality results. This is a unit that will stand the test of time and get better with age. I would recommend buying one, converting it to natural gas and setting it up permanently in the backyard.

Do You Get Value For Money?
Overall, it was seen that the Camp Chef Smoker 24″ Smoke Vault certainly is value for money. The price point may see slightly higher than other similar size gas smoker, but it makes up for that in terms of its functionality, performance, and durability.
A truly fantastic smoker that will deliver quality tasting food for years to come.
