An offset smoker is a device for smoking food in which the fire is in a compartment (A) which is not completely connected to the cooking area (B), as in the image below:

In theory at least, parts A and B are separate devices and can be separated by a long pipe while reserving the ability to cook. Would this affect the status of the cooking chamber somehow, viz. whether it is a kli rishon?

  • "Considering this" Considering what? A device is being heated directly. I don't understand how this could be Kli Sheni. Does it not get hot in there? It's being heated. If I put a pot on a blekh on a fire, that pot is kli sheni??? – Double AA Aug 28 '16 at 20:35
  • @DoubleAA, I've heard that one can theoretically cook an egg in water in a kli sheini on Shabbat (although we don't). In theory at least, parts A and B are separate devices and can be separated by a long pipe while reserving the ability to cook. Would this affect its status somehow, viz. which kli it is? – Noach MiFrankfurt Aug 28 '16 at 21:24
  • The definition of Keli Rishon and Sheni begins only after that they are separated from a heating source – kouty Aug 29 '16 at 6:46
  • @kouty, the question is how separate they are from a heating source. FWIW, I would never use a smoker for meat, then milk, (or vice versa) unless I kashered it completely between uses. – Noach MiFrankfurt Aug 29 '16 at 15:24
