Gustav Rooth came up with the idea of the iQ Oak Barrel Smoker when considering how to eliminate the waste involved with his popular Barrely Made It line of oak-barrel-made furniture. The 65-pounds, oak barrel is a vertical smoker with technology that Rooth and his crew engineered and named 'iQ' because it is 'Incredibly Quick'. Meat comes out of the IQ Smoker tasting like it has been cooking for hours, but from start to finish, most meats only take 30 minutes to finish. Rooth can frequently be found cooking at culinary events in the area. He has been a cook since the 1980s when his family’s restaurant, Christina’s Food Boutique, was open in La Mesa.
Planet Rooth Design Haus is located at 3334 5th Avenue.
