TRU-infrared Technology

Infrared technology is handy with this roaster, smoker and grill. A propane burner is enclosed in an inner and outer wall. The burner heats the inner wall and radiates infrared heat for cooking. Remember, hot air is responsible for drying out food through the top of the chamber. As a result, you will get incredibly delicious and moist food.
