    My 3rd cabinet

    Advertised as a 3400 chubby, I think it’s actually the G2. Got a great deal. This will be my portable smoker. Gonna put it on a wheel chair hitch lift and take it on vacation, camping etc. I’m pretty excited to own it.

      SavageSmoke great find! Hope you got a good deal on it. The Backwoods smokers look great, and are starting to interest me in my "wish list" of smokers! I love smoking with charcoal, and a vertical cabinet smoker that can handle full steam table trays like the Chubby is intriguing for sure.

      The G2 is 6" deeper than the 3400, with 15.5 x 22 inch deep racks. The 3400 has 15.5 x 16.5 inch deep cooking racks.

        SavageSmoke that's a great deal, and half the cost of the new 3400 or 1/3 the cost of a new G2. Actually, looks like Backwoods is really proud of their casters, as they add $250 to the price tag to ship you a smoker with casters!

        jfmorris yeah and that tiny cover is $102. It’s about an $1800 package I think.

      I have the Chubby G2. There are three levels: 3400, Chubby, and then Chubby G2. Looks like a Chubby to me based on the door latches and full length hinges. You will enjoy it. Very easy to dial in and maintain temp.

      Backwoods Smoker, Inc.

      February 10, 2017 ·

      BWS Chubby 3400.

      What is the difference between the old Chubby and the Chubby 3400?

      1. All stainless steel inside.
      2. Comes with the heat diverter.
      3. New door hinges.
      4. New door latches.
      5. New high heat rubber door gaskets.

      The differences for the new "Chubby 3400" compared to the standard Chubby everything else is the same.

      Specifications:

      As our newest and most portable Backwoods Cooker, the Chubby 3400 also serves as one of our most economical in our cooker lineup. We are always striving to meet our customers’ needs by making our most popular smoker more affordable for the weekend worriers to be able to get that same low and slow Professional quality meat right in your own backyard.

      The Chubby weighs in at a hefty 130 lbs.
      Dimensions:
      Outside dimensions:
      • 20″ deep plus 2 ½″ for the thermometer and door latches

      • 13″ tall cooking chamber
      • 16″ wide

      Racks:

      • 15 ½” wide
      • 1/8″ Nickel plated round bar
      Standard Features:

      *Inventory due to be available mid to late June


      If you look at the pics you will see the difference in the latches, hinges and interior. Also it has 3400 on the front label. The G2 is basically a longer version of the Chubby (It can hold a full length rack of ribs without cutting). Also, I think the racks are a heavier gauge. Hope this helps.

        Also, I think the 3400 is made in China where the Chubby/G2 is produced in Louisiana. This may have changed since the Backwoods site no longer advertises the basic Chubby. https://shop.backwoods-smoker.com/collections/frontpage

        Ah I see. I didn’t realize there were 3 models and assumed this was the g2. That kinda sucks. Oh well. Still a great little cooker for $400

        That is a great price. When I bought the Chubby new was @$1000 and the G2 @$1300. Will cook the same just lower capacity. From the backwoods site -The G2 upgrades from the original Chubby include additional 6″ of smoker depth, heavy duty wire racks, a new large capacity fire box and a bigger water pan. These additions are what our customers asked for the capacity for larger cuts of meat and the ability to hold the full size steam pans.

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

      the good one grill

      The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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 All In One

      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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

      Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

      masterbuilt gas smoker

      Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
