    Lone Star Grillz 24x48 Grill/Smoker

    Because of some recent posts by CaptainMike and others I ran across this unit from Lone Star Grillz. https://lonestargrillz.com/collectio...charcoal-grill

    This looks like a great unit with lots of space for grilling when my Family is all home or to grill a small amount when it's just my Wife and me. To me it looks to be a good Smoker too. Does anyone out there have one of these? Thoughts?

        Even though my old Kamado still works fine, I still find myself lusting after the built-in version and doing a full outdoor kitchen. But there are other projects on our house that will have to take precedence for the time being...

          I don't have that particular model Skip. But if you see any of my comments about LSG products you know how I feel about them. Everything they put out is top notch. You would not be disappointed with that cooker for sure.

            I was skeptical when I saw the price but, after watching the video, I'm impressed. There's not much I can think of that you can't do with that thing. Looks like a winner to me

                    Skip I'm extremely prejudiced because I've been cooking on that very pit, almost every night, since the middle of March. I've posted both first impressions that Uncle Bob referred to and a 6 month follow-up which is here: https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...er-6-months-in

                    It's just one incredibly good pit. If you decide it's what you want, PM me and I'll go over what you might want to order with it.

                      I was torn between the 40 and the 48. The only reason I chose the 40 was for how it would look and fit spatially on my deck amongst the other contraptions. Hey, feng shui counts!!

                      I began lusting over the 24X48 from the moment I saw it. And when AZ Fogey started posting updates, well, you get it. If I hadn’t spent a chunk on my Recteq RT700 only a year and a half ago I would probably have one of these. Don’t get me wrong. I love the Recteq and if the stars align and I am able to score the LSG, I would keep the RT700. Maybe someday......

                        LOL. I also kept my Recteq. I think I've used it twice since I got the LSG. Sometimes you just feel lazy and don't want to mess with charcoal.

                        That's typical for them. When I got my LSG it took just under 4 months.

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

                    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!

                    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.

                    Grilla pellet smoker
                    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.

                    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                    PK 360 grill
                    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.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
