I have a Charbroil Big Easy, which the mfg refers to as a Grill/Smoker too. My opinion is that they call it a smoker based on the large domed (somewhat) lid. I haven't done any smoking on mine as I have a separate smoker for that purpose, but I can see cooking indirectly with a "smoke pouch" for the smoking process. So, yeah, I guess it's possible. Or it's simply a selling tool by the mfg, which is probably more likely.
