    Hello from Minnesota

    Hey all,

    I have been using AmazingRibs for a couple of years and decided to join the Pitmaster club. I am in the middle of deciding what pellet grill to purchase and I am leaning towards the Smokefire. Hoping that is not a terrible decision. Any feedback on that would be great.

    Looking forward to interacting with everybody.

    Welcome to the Pitmaster Club! Since you’re new, and if you haven't already done so, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum. Great to have another Minnesotan in the Pitmaster Club.

    Make sure to check out our review on the Smokefire.

    Here is a complete list of all our pellet grill reviews for more options.

    Also, it's very important that you:

    Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. It’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, you can change it by simply visitinghttps://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pi...il-request.php

    Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Great Giveaway Monthly Sweepstakes winner, which is open to all paying USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

    Keep the smoke rollin’

        Welcome to the Pit from Dallas! I would check the reviews in amazingribs.com and the comments on the Smokefire in the Pit before pulling the trigger.

                Huntington Beach welcomes you.
                I hear (no actual experience) Yoder is a good cooker.

                        Welcome from Maple Grove! Minnesota is taking over the site, eh Spinaker?

                        If you are thinking about SmokeFire you need to talk to glitchy.

                          Howdy from Kansas Territory, Welcome to Th Pit!
                          Lookin forward to learnin along with, an from ya!

                          LA Pork Butt makes a very good cautionary point, as I've also heared many mixed reviews on th new SmokeFire... I'm a lifelong, diehard Weber guy, charcoal, an am currently down to 'only' 16 kettle cookers...

                          That bein said, (IF) I were to ever to find myself in th market fer a pellet cooker, well, amigo, I works hard fer my dollars, an I ain't currently willin to plunk me down no dang dang $1200 fer an SF, until I hear better things bein more universally said...

                          I'd be lookin at me some Yoder, MAK, RecTec...

                          HouseHomey is also Dead On Right, with Yoder makes some Very Good, tried, an true Pellet poopers...

                          I got no dog in this, jus don't want ta see ya burn a cool grand, Plus, an be unhappy...

                          If'n yer heart's set on th features, price, etc. of th Smokefire, reckon I'd advise th possible wisdom of rollin with what ya currently have, an givin that situation a chance to hopefully be resolved to better, then snappin up a deal.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            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.
