    Is there hope for Saskatoon?

    Folks I need help. I'm in Saskatoon for the next two weeks and based on google, tripadvisor, and urbanspoon there are no decent barbecue places here. Schryer's Smoked Barbecue shack is the most promising, and that's after reading the reviews about boiled ribs and sauce drenching. Help a carnivore out?

    Pit Boss, Boss, I have been Drunk a few Times? Never once did I end up in SASKATOON, and I was raised and live one Hell of a Lot Closer to Saskatchewan than You! It's only 678 Miles to Fargo, 11.25 Hrs if You Drive, Longer if You Walk!

    Eat Well and Prosper! From Fargo ND, Dan

      Pit Boss - If all else fails, it looks like there's a Traeger dealer in Saskatoon, maybe you can rent a pellet pooper and make your own food Or, even better, maybe they cook frequently to entice potential customers.

      Have a good trip,
      Jim

        Did some searching for you also, doesn't appear to be. Maybe you can convince that Traeger outfit to let you test run some stuff.

                  There's a Tony Roma's in Saskatoon. Their ribs were pretty good. Oh, I forgot, that was after eating in "non-tourist" i.e. native restaurants for a month in Shanghai.

                    I travel a ton. Not to be a downer, but sometimes you just have to give up on your expectations. This is particularly true when traveling to a "dry" city or county.

                    All I know is that fishing is good in The Saskatoon area. I wouldn't call Saskatchewan BBQ country, unless it has changed radically since I was last there.

                      I always take a crowd with me, so one hot plate ain't gonna do it. There's a Tony Roma's here. Maybe that's what we'll have to make do with.

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

                    the good one grill

                    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.

                    Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
