    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    Can you explain or point me to a comparison of the 3?

  • jlazar
    replied
    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.

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

  • jfmorris
    commented on 's reply
    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!

  • SavageSmoke
    commented on 's reply
    I gave $400 for 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.

    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.

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

Placeholder

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

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!

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.
