GFIs are tripped via the current leakage from hot to ground. As little as .1 amp will cause a trip. Circuit load has nothing to do with a gfi trip. If this just started happening it is likely that your smoker has some poor insulation causing the trip, which would not be unusual with a cheap appliance but it could be as simple as a bad power cord.
Good luck
