    PR36 a beast of a grill! Have you done a whole hog on yours?

    Does it hold temps well?

    capitalhockey, the pellet does not impart a strong smoke flavor, at least not the model I have. I got it more for convenience-we have an RV and I wanted to travel with it (the Grilla Chimp is portable, kind of). Some of the others here say the Grilla OG gives a good smoke flavor, but I don’t think any pellet grill will compare with the WSM or kettle/sns for smoke.

    Call bbq guru in Paterson NJ, he is a super knowledgable guy with good prices and he will give you an honest opinion because he sells both cookers in his shop. That being "the Good One" is great and you can't go wrong with either one, enjoy!

    It's my brothers unit, I was helping him pick out a cooker. What stood out was superior build quality, thicker metal, bigger casters, stainless steel grates, bigger smoke and grill area. I've cooked on both and there is a big difference, I like the good one but it flies through charcoal because of the very thin metal. The paint also flakes and they are prone to rust. The all star doesn't use much fuel it will sit at 225 and 275 (that's all I've done).

    And yes - I have heard too much about the smoke profile being lighter on pellet cookers, and love the results I get with wood or charcoal with wood chunks. So I have a fear of not being happy. My research though has the Grilla original design (round upright) on my short list of toys if I were to get a pellet smoker. I am told it has a good smoke profile, and its at a price point I would consider if I had room for more out there.

    capitalhockey I've not really had the opportunity to spend a lot of cash on a grill in a few years - first it was 3 kids in college with 7-8 years of 2 or 3 overlapping, then 3 weddings in 18 months, then my wife's cancer.... I was blessed to be given the flat top, and to win the kamado. When I won in January, I could have chosen a pellet smoker rather than the kamado, but feel that the pellet rig will have parts fail in a few years, the kamado will last practically forever.

    I also Briefly looked at ABS All Star but limited reviews on them....has not been judged by Amazing Ribs website....Good One got Platinum award. how do you like your unit? How long you had it?

    I here you, I was looking at the Good One at BBQ Guru in Paterson NJ. The owner nodded his head no and told me that for 100 bucks more I could get twice the machine. He the showed me The American BBQ systems All Star. It has the exact same functionality but it's a heavy duty cooker, made better, bigger.....it made the good one look like a toyoii, check it out you might like it.

    Meadow Creek PR 36. It fits your budget and does everything you want it to really well. No compromises. You can set it up to grill a lot of food or indirect cook/smoke six racks of ribs (more if you buy the optional rib rack or additional shelf). Charcoal fired (with wood chunks).

    Welcome to the Pit!

    Sorry. To much to read above.

    Weber kettle + SnS and a PBC works for us.

    This is excellent advice. With the Camp Chef stoves you can purchase multiple attachments. Highly recommend.

    Jim, I use that griddle more than any of my cookers. If I am in a hurry, I will fire up the Weber. Or I will use it to finish if needed. But my go to cookers are the SNS and the griddle.
