    Party Q installed...

ID:	79357 I have gotten the Party Q installed and the Smokenator full of charcoal during some pork tenderlions but I don't know if I'm going to like it or not. The temp on the Maverick Redi Chek read around 30 F higher then the Party Q. I guess I will have to just play with it until I figure it out. Hummm I was looking at these pics and I think I see why. I had the Redi Chek closer to the Smokenator then the Party Q probe, What do you all think?Click image for larger version

    The Redi-Check looks to be in a heat enriched area. The PartyQ sensor seems to be surrounded by cool meat.

      Jerod Broussard yeah I think that was the problem. I didn't think of that until I saw the pic.

    So when do you let the fan take over?

    I was thinking of letting the cooker get to almost 200, then shutting down the bottom vent and letting the fan take over. For a 225 target temp.

      Jerod Broussard I let the fan take over as soon as I dump the chimney of lit coals in but maybe I can try that next.

      OK, I'm not totally sure what is the correct way. I think with some of the fans your way is best so the fan can get a feel for things. Now that I think about it.

      I'd be leary of getting the fan too close to the coals. 1. The heat. 2. Blowing ash.

      I think Meathead recommends the unit at about 3 o'clock in relation to the charcoal, with the charcoal being at 12 o'clock.

      Definitely not recommended, I emailed BBQ Guru to be sure. They prefer opposite ends but 90 degree if you don't have an option is ok since you can direct the outlet from adapter.

    I like my Party Q. Works well with overnight cooking. I sleep better. I found that bringing the cooker up to the desired temp then turning on the Party Q to let it maintain temperature works well.

    Ok folks, I move the smokenator to the 12 o'clock position so that put the PartyQ in the 9 o'clock position. GUESS WHAT!.It works like a charm. That's what I like about AR, people on here will help you with problems you might have with your cookers. Thank you...

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
