Char-Broil vertical gas smokers are being recalled because of a defect that has caused some to explode, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

When the temperature is set to "low," not enough gas can pass through so the flame goes out, but gas keeps building up inside the smoker. If the smoker is lit again, the propane gas can explode and burst open the smoker door.
