    MCS Beaten Back (for now!)

    Last week I was in Lowe's and they had the "display unit" of the Chargriller 980 gravity smoker marked down to $499. I really wanted to bite on it, but just couldn't justify it under my current circumstances (still not working and about to undergo a second heart surgery.) But I was sorely tempted.

    The funny thing is I had NEVER seen a 980 "on display" at this Lowe's before this, and it wasn't for want of looking.

    I'm potentially in the stint screening group myself. Hope things work out for your heart surgery brother Dewesq55.

    The cooker can wait.

      Best wishes to you Dewesq55, I had bypass surgery in 2007. I hope the less invasive option is available for you.

      I was involved in some of those first TAVR procedures done in the US, that is awesome stuff. Helluva lot better than getting your chest cracked, that's for sure!

      DogFaced PonySoldier - Yes indeed. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed tightly that I qualify for TAVR. My regular cardiologist says there should be nothing to worry about, but he's not involved in making the decision, so . . .🤷‍♀️🤞😕

    Resistance is futile....
    But I agree with Troutman, there’ll be other cookers for sale.
    Get yourself healthy first.

      Ouch, not my choice to avoid MCS.
      Wish you well.

          Please keep us posted. Surely thinking of you. There will always be cookers. Take care of you and then focus on MCS. We are all thinking of you!

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

            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.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


            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.
