      Very interesting in following this thread. I'd be in the same/similar situation. I have a Weber Genesis gasser, Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5 and a Weber Kettle. Always pondered, what would I choose???

      I think I would be trying to decide between the Pellet and HB.

        OK, this has been super fun, and I very much appreciate everyone's help, and I especially appreciate someone's computer for choosing me!

        Final Answer: One Hasty-Bake, please!

          Congrats and good choice. I understand the long decision making process. Some of mine take many months to almost a year.

                    I hope she answers soon. That would be horrible to have gone through all this and picking one to lose it now. Has that ever happened? Someone responded initially only to fail on the paperwork.

                    sos2979. (She answered shortly after this!) But no, that hasn't happened since I've been handling this. This past February though we had to pick 3 winners because the first two never responded by the initial deadline.

                      Here's the story of my first day with the Hasty-Bake!

                      Hasty-Bake does an excellent job of packing these things for shipping; it took awhile to get it out and unwrapped!

                      Assembly was easy, and would have been even easier if my arms were just a couple inches longer.

                      I decided to cook a couple Coulottes because that's what I had in the fridge. So I lined the ash pan with tin foil, put in a little charcoal, and tried to light it with one of the supplied strike-a-fire things. That thing only stayed on fire for about 2 seconds, so I lit it with a match, and then it worked.

                      The charcoal was ready to go in about 20 minutes.

                      First I put the steaks on the indirect side, with the coals at "bake" level, trying to cook them a little before searing, but there wasn't enough charcoal to make the oven hot enough to actually cook them over there. Then I moved the fire all the way up, and just seared the steaks.

                      They came out slightly over how I prefer them, but holy shit were they delicious! A friend came over to see my new baby (the HB), and she lucked out because I hadn't finished eating, so she got a few bites. She declared it most excellent.

                      I'm so grateful to have won this crazy drawing, and also to everyone who helped me decide what to pick. We chose well!

                      It'll be couple weeks before I have time to smoke anything, so in the meantime, I'll be Hasty-Baking more steaks; it's not nearly as much trouble as I thought it would be to cook just one steak.

                        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the 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 Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

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

                        the good one grill

                        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                        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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        NK-22-Ck Grill

                        Their NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

                        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

                        Our Favorite Backyard 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.

                        Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                        masterbuilt gas smoker

                        Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
