    I've got a grill, I've got a smoker, I'd have to go with the SRF package for the brisket alone!

        * - Favorite Beer - the cold one in my hand (craft beers of all flavors; haven't had a blue yummy in over 6 years) my tastes change with the season so it is difficult to name just a couple. However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
        * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
        * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
        * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE
        * - Current butchers: Just Good Meats & Fareway Foods

      I would choose the Backwoods Chubby or for nostalgia purposes the MHP WNK4 to take me back to my childhood.

                    @Danjohnson949. "I have Owned my wife for 42 Years today!".

                    Congrats on a long and durable marriage. I think some of us would be sleeping on the couch if we said we owned our wife for 42 years though.😎

                    Cheers all, thank you for all the support. @Huskee--happy birthday sir, hope your day was wonderful.
                    I have a standard Weber charcoal 24" grill, a three burner gas grill with a firebox (I bought years before joining this site and learning why the firebox isn't encouraged), and a standing gas smoker. 2 of the 3 were gifts from my beautiful family. So this'll be my 4th grill--and I'll have only paid for one. Other than mortgage, new HVAC, new water pump, new windows, and crippling debt--life is very kind.

                    SO. Karubecue. I don't have a friend with connections to wood in what was described (i.e.: I go to Lowes for all my mesquite, hickory, and misc chips when I feel like them). It looks incredible. This is the offer of a lifetime. I will work against the odds and make the damn thing work, but I don't know where to buy the best wood for it. I just moved to Oceanside, CA. Any recommendations are tremendously appreciated.

                    Broil King Keg looks beautiful too. My father-in-law has a similar grill, loves it.

                    Anything you can recommend I'll treat as gospel. Thank you, all. I appreciate the community and all your help.

                      Grats Sir_Gibby fun fun... and I see this is your first post too, Welcome Aboard

                      I would pick the Karubecue... it looks like a fine machine! I can not speak to the wood situation in your area... but I would think, if you could get out where some orange or citrus groves are, you might be able to hook up with a farmer who has a line on that kind of wood. I know orchard guys are always replacing trees... just an idea!

                        Hey, David,

                        Is there a particular date each month we should check this site for the month's winner? And will you still also be contacting the winner by e-mail?

                        Thanks,

                        Tim

                          Take the Karubecue and worry about the wood later.

                          slow n sear
                          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.
