        HOLY COW!!!! I know some folks who complain about 1200 pounds of shipping costs. A guy on a BBQ forum mentioned he had a smoker from Klose and would post pics. Well, his "smoker" looked like a $60,000+ comp trailer with a dual gas assisted firebox lighter, sucker was HUGE. Hot water, BIG pull out cutting boards. The offset was a 30" diameter. I was blown away.



        Jon thanks


          Dave is crazy and he will build about anything.. Great guy great rig he is the best and he will talk your ear off and have you rolling in laughter. His rigs are great... i dont compete so i wanted a rig that could cook large amounts of meat. he custom made one for me just for that purpose... took a few months but worth it . It is a beast but does a great job smoking ... seven rows also rods, rib racks etc......

              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.

              Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

              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’.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
