    Lone Star Grilz, I want

    Well after much research I think I found what I might be getting. Now I just need to figure out how to pay for it. LOL

    I really like the Lone Star Smoke, 20x36, offset smoker.

    It's expensive but will probably last a life time.

    What do you all think?

          Bigger is better! I went with the large cabinet and have not regretted it.

              I actually think the price is a bargain, given the quality. The main thing that keeps me from pulling that trigger is shipping cost to the Northeast.

                What are you waiting for!






                so, did you buy it yet? And, look at the money you are saving by not getting the 20x42!

                    LSG is on the top of my list.
                    Can’t decide which one ,,,offset or an insulated vert. cabinet. The prices are very reasonable for the build quality.
                    The tough part is $1k shipping cost to MA.

                      That is very steep. Cost $590 to California for the large insulated cabinet. Great cooker, I'm really enjoying it.

                      @ofelles,,,I did send Chris @ LSG an email to get an estimate for shipping and his reply was to put what ever smoker I was looking at into to basket and go, to checkout and it would have the cost for shipping.
                      It came to $980 to the Boston area.
                      It was an ouch moment !

                        #15
                        I love my LSG 20x36. Had it almost 2 years and I don't know how I survived without it.

                        If it helps, here's my take on the accessories I got:
                        • Grill Pan - love it. I use it a lot
                        • Ash pan - would not buy if I had it to do over. I don't use it
                        • Gas assist - I've used it a couple times, but mostly not. My lighting method is to start a charcoal fire, then add logs. Probably would not buy again, but maybe.
                        • Charcoal basket - I've used it a couple times. I expect it will be a lot more useful if I get a fireboard blower for set-and-forget long cooks. The baffles are not very durable at charcoal temps - they are flaking off big chunks. But I would still buy it again.
                        • Ash rake and poker - probably overpriced for what you get, but I use them a lot and like that they match the smoker.
                        • Vinyl Cover - need to have it unless you are under a roof. You need to waterproof the seams - they leak, which annoyed me considering the cost
                        • Probe ports - I got 2 so I could have easy access to both grates. Would be okay with just 1
                        • Pull handle - essential unless you will always leave it parked in the same spot
                        • Drain valve - worth it. Makes cleaning way easier. I didn't price what it would cost to buy - certainly could screw one on yourself if you can get it cheaper
                        Bottom line - the smoker is awesome, and the accessories are good overall with a few duds from one man's point of view.

                      the good one grill
                      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.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                      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.

                      kareubequ bbq 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.
