    Greetings from Kansas!

    New to the forum, been backyard smoking for a few years. Started on a WSM then moved up to a Good-One Open Range. I'm in the middle of researching my next smoker. Torn between a great ceramic (Primo XL Oval or the Kamado Joe Big Joe II) and a great pellet grill. Since those two ceramics are almost 2K with accessories, stands, etc., I'm looking at the same price range for a pellet smoker. Looking at Yoder YS480 and Pitts & Spitts Maverick 850, and maybe MAK 1. I like my Open Range, but after the first 5 hours it takes a lot of tending. I like the idea of the ceramic being able to smoke low and also replace my Weber kettle. I welcome any input on any of these products. And just to muddy the water, if anyone thinks a lower price pellet grill like GMG Jim Bowie, Rec Tec, or CampChef is worth a look, please sound off. Thanks!

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

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


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.

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.
