The Razzo by Fornetto - Trial & Review

The new Razzo by Fornetto is an all-in-one, multi-purpose outdoor smoker, which allows you to cook delicious food using the low and slow method using either wood or charcoal, for that authentic smokey flavour.






You can smoke, roast, steam and barbecue meat, fish, seafood, or vegetables til your heart's content. And thats exactly what we have been doing for the past few weeks.

Experimenting with different heat sources and flavours

It features a grill, two oven chambers and two stainless steel internal stackable baskets. Each section is removable so you can cook for as many or as few as you like. The unit itself is very portable so you can take it camping, to a party or even the park for a picnic. You can literally shrink it right down to make it more portable - by simply removing one or two of the sections.

The Razzo is made using the highest quality enamelled steel and stainless steel to help retain heat and withstand high temperatures.  Easy grip silicone door handles provide protection while sturdy aluminium tripod legs provide stability.  A temperature gauge enables you to monitor food while it cooks whilst two oven doors allow you to top up with water or fuel as required.   


The Razzo is very stylish too and looks great in our backyard. Our son refers to it as the red Robot that lives in our backyard.

Brisket, corn, slaw and all the trimmings

So far we have tried ribs, pulled pork, short ribs, chicken wings, sausages,roast lamb and our favourite - Beef Brisket.


Short Rib

Homemade Pickles - because these are the ultimate side when smoking meats.

If you are interested in cooking brisket we have included this great demo by Aaron Franklin from BBQ with Franklin. We have found that we get the best results by following the tips in this clip below.





We have really enjoyed testing out the new Razzo smoker - it definitely delivers. It produces great tasting food, its easy to use, doesn't take up too much room and it looks pretty funky too.

The Razzo 18” comes in a choice of black or red - RRP $549. The 22” comes in black only and RRP $749.
