    I've looked at these in person before, as they've had them at Lowe's for the past couple of years, on display, but don't carry the WSM in the store. The build quality seems very good, just poking at it in a store. Certainly a better buy than a WSM 18 at $189 versus $329.

    I do see that this appears to be an exact duplicate of the ProQ smoker. Looking at the manual PDF, it appears that support is all out of Garth in Australia. Given that the Australia address for ProQ is a PO Box that is 1000km from the address for Garth support in Australia, I am thinking that maybe this is a knockoff by another Australian company....

    Fornetto Basso in Italian, translates as low oven, for whatever it’s worth. Seems like an accurate name based on the photos posted herein.

    Looking at the website, it appears they are an Australian company. Not sure why Lowe's here in the US is carrying them, as I don't see any other dealers here, and Lowe's just has the one model, versus the four that are made.

    started a topic Fornetto Basso Charcoal Smoker

    Fornetto Basso Charcoal Smoker

    My son was at Lowe's last night, and texted me about a little Masterbuilt charcoal smoker for $62 bucks, and I told him to just turn around and walk away from it, that I would rather see him smoke on his Weber Spirit 3 burner grill than buy that....

    I was looking to see what Lowe's might have that was affordable, and saw this on their website - I have seen it in person a few times as well:

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Fornetto-Ba...ker/1000714230

    Has anyone seen these? It seems like a pretty well made copy of a WSM 18, but more modular in design. I like that it clamps together so you can lift it as once piece too for moving it around. Also says it comes with hanging hooks for hanging meat in the description.

    Here is the website for the company:

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!

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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
