Whatever, I've built more smokers/grills with a stick welder and some old

conductor, than most on this or any other site.....

Seen, and used, some brilliant designs by others......

Controlled feed is the answer to any grilling conundrum......

Tools are supposed to make life easier.....

I suppose you could defend your house with a musket and a axe ??????

I have been researching the pellet grills for a new cabin we're building in the mountains. I need something barbecue enthusiasts and rookies can all use. They pellet grills seem like a great answer. The only thing I don't like is needing power. I like being able to grill if a storm hits and power is gone. I am now thinking pellet grill with a fire pit or outdoor fireplace as a backup plan.

Throw bacon on the thing at 325 and leave it for 30 min, perfect! No turning.

Put a pan of biscuits on at half way and you are good to go,

There is nothing you cannot cook on a traeger!

When we rebuilt our deck, the 300# Jenn air, came down and never came back.

Traeger, Traeger, Traeger!!!!!!

Did I tell you I like my Traeger.

Absolutely love the pellet grills! But Green Mountain is what I use I've got a full size Daniel Boone at home and just broke in my brand new portable

i guess i'm old fashioned and like the older methods of smoking meat with wood. i prefer the seperate firebox style of smokers the best as they are the type i learned to use many years ago from my uncle and my father.

i have built many of my own smokers and grilles over the years and most times have used scrap metal to build them and old tanks of various sizes. mine are nothing fancy, but the results speak for themselves when i cook on them.

cooking technique are more important than a fancy or expensive smoker or grille to cook on.

Here are 3 pork butts I put on at 11 PM last night. Getting ready to wrap them in foil and maintain grill temp so they will be warm and juicy at 1:30 today for my daughter's volleyball team picnic. Went I went to bed at midnight the Egg temp was just a hair under 250. Went I got up to check it at 7 it was sitting at 190 so things worked pretty well overnight.

Are we taking the same pellets that you burn in the heating stoves? If so, wouldn't those give the meat a yucky taste, depending on what the pellets were made of? I'd have to say, I'm probably a fan of smoking and firing with wood only. CardiacColt, how did you get your smoker to only drop 60 degrees when not being watched for I'm guessing 6+ hours?

It is a Big Green Egg. They are very efficient, and once you get it up to temp, and used to operating the two vents they usually hold pretty well. It dropped about 60 degrees in 7 hours. I have never done an overnight cook before so I started it off a little hot at 250 assuming I'd drop more. I thought if I went down to 150-160 I'd still be OK. As it is, I am pretty happy with the results.

I would assume that the pellets used for cooking are different than the ones used for heat. But maybe not. It probably has something to do with what tempts they are heated to and how much is fed through the grill's hopper.

My first smoker is electric... Absolutely love it. Thing is amazing! After 3 years, it's beginning to show some problems with the electronics and needs to be replaced. I have a Weber NG Grille which I mostly like. NG just doesn't get hot enough to do an adequate reverse sear. But, don't expect the grill to go anywhere.

So, for a smoker unit only, what should I be looking at?
