Yes, although both companies are headquartered in their respective states the products themselves are made in China. A Google search will confirm it. Their retail prices also prove it when you compare them with Cookshack electric smokers, which as I said are made here. Here's an example of what I'm talking about. Right now the Cookshack Smokette SM009-2 Electric Smoker sells for $699 and cooking capacity is 20-25 lbs. of food. Its temp range is 100-250° and has only a 500 watt heating element.. By contrast, the Smokin-IT Model #3D is on sale for $699.99 (reg. $734.99) and cooking capacity is 45 lbs. Temp range is 0-300° and it has a 1200 watt heating element. Both smokers burn wood. The smokers from both companies are highly-rated. With the Chinese-made electric smokers you get more bang for your buck, if that's important to you.
