A smoker is a type of furnace that cooks food items, similar to a furnace. A smoker smelts items at a speed of one item every 100 game ticks (5 seconds) or twelve items per minute, which is twice as fast as a standard furnace. It also serves as a butcher's job site block.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

Smokers can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

Usage[]

Smokers cannot be pushed by pistons.‌[Java Edition only]

Smelting[]

The GUI for the smoker, same as the furnace's.

Main article: Smelting

Smokers are used to cook food items twice as fast as a regular furnace. It is the counterpart to the blast furnace, which is used to quickly smelt ores, metal tools and armor. When a food item and a fuel item is placed into the smoker, the block state changes to lit and the item cooks. Fuel is used at double the rate of regular furnaces, so the number of items cooked per fuel stays the same. The product can then be collected by pressing use on the smoker or by collecting the output using a hopper.

Smokers cannot cook chorus fruit, as popped chorus fruit is not edible.

Changing profession[]

If a village has a smoker that has not been claimed by a villager, any nearby villager who hasn't chosen a job site block has a chance to change their profession to butcher.

Light source[]

Smokers emit a light level of 13 when active, just like normal furnaces.

Custom name[]

By default, the GUI of a smoker is labeled "Smoker", but this name can be customized by naming it in an anvil before placing it, or by changing the CustomName tag using the /data command‌[Java Edition only].

Lock[]

In Java Edition, a smoker can be "locked" by setting its Lock tag using the /data command. If a smoker's Lock tag is not blank, the smoker cannot be opened unless the player is holding an item with the same name as the Lock tag's text. For example, to lock a smoker at (0,64,0) so that the smoker cannot be opened unless the player is holding an item named "Smoker Key", use /data merge block 0 64 0 {Lock:"Smoker Key"}.

Note Blocks[]

Smoker can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass drum" sound, just as other stone blocks.

  • Block entity data
    • Tags common to all block entities
    •  BurnTime: Number of ticks left before the current fuel runs out.
    •  CookTime: Number of ticks the item has been smelting for. The item finishes smelting when this value reaches 200 (10 seconds). Is reset to 0 if BurnTime reaches 0.
    •  CookTimeTotal: Number of ticks It takes for the item to be smelted.
    •  CustomName: Optional. The name of this container in JSON text component, which appears in its GUI where the default name ordinarily appears.
    •  Items: List of items in this container.
      • : An item in the smoker, including the slot tag:

        Slot 1: The item(s) to use as the next fuel source.
        Slot 2: The item(s) in the result slot.
        • Tags common to all items
    •  Lock: Optional. When not blank, prevents the container from being opened unless the opener is holding an item whose name matches this string.
    •  RecipesUsed: Which recipes have been used since the last time a recipe result item was manually removed from the GUI. Used to calculate experience given to the player when taking out the resulting item.
      •  recipe ID: How many times this specific recipe has been used. The recipe ID is the namespaced ID of the smelting recipe, as used in the /recipe command.
