    My SNS Deluxe Kettle courtesy of the April 2021 "Great Giveaway"

    Grill arrived within two weeks of award. The SNS staff engaged right away.

    No issues noted with the grill during assembly - all parts were included, easy to assemble, instructions were easy to follow - took about an hour. Initial impression - better fit of parts than my weber kettle that this grill replaced.

    First cook wasn't BBQ, but was a reverse seared 2" thick, bone in NY Strip. Cooked to internal 140F at about 260F (about 1.5 hrs)) then seared over the coals. Didn't take much charcoal, held temp well, vent settings were almost exactly what I expected. You can see the charcoal load in the picture (hopefully), still a good bit remaining after the cook.

    This grill joins my SNS Deluxe Kamado on the back porch and I will share some actual BBQ once I've had a chance to use it a bit more.

              Looks great!

              Having both the SNS Kamado and a Weber Performer (with SNS) myself, I do think there are times the kettle has an advantage - such as coming up to temperature quicker. I had to abort a cook on the SNS Kamado yesterday, as the 3 starter cubes I put into the lump bed at the bottom just did not get it going quick enough to cook the 4 flank steaks I had in time for a 1PM lunch, and I lit it about 12:15 (when we walked in the door from church). With guests already there, about 12:50 I decided to move the steaks to the flat top (griddle). With a chimney and my kettle, I think I could have had the fire going faster.

                        Thank you for sharing your prize. It's nice to see firsthand the results of the drawing. When I win, and I think I will 🤔), that SNS kettle will probably be my choice, too!

                            Man, you have a nice outdoor cooking area. At first glance it looked like you had fired that up inside!

                            great looking cook.

                              Any updates on performance of this grill.? Now that you are familiar with it would you actually buy one?

                              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                              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!

                              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.

                              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.

                              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’.
