    Burning in my new Camp Chef Woodwind WiFi 36 after loooong assembly time!

    My wife and I are senior citizens and I have some fine motor control issues due to a medication side effect (only temporary). YouTube videos and Camp Chef say 45-60 minutes to assemble. It only took us 3 hours and 25 minutes! LOL! Neither one of us had ever assembled a grill before. I am so looking forward to smoking on this! When I ordered it April 16th, they told me 6-8 weeks for delivery but I got it in only 5 1/2 weeks. We started at 7 AM and finished about 10:25 AM. My wife commented that she thought we did pretty well! I agreed. Ambient temp in the shade was 83 when we started and 99 by the time we finished.

        Glad to hear you're up and BBQ'ing. May the smoke fill you with memories of pleasure.
        May all your Grilling pair well with PBR.

            DavidNorcross I got the Sidekick instead of the Sear Box. More versatile (comes with CI griddle and a separate grease cup). Also got the Deluxe BBQ grill box, which has a cover lid on it. Will install the Sidekick tomorrow morning, before it gets to 100 degrees out. Will post pics once it is complete.

          SmokingSteve, I'm in Sun City West, planning an outdoor kitchen and considering the Woodwind 24 with the Sidekick. I'm VERY interested in your cookin' so far, and where you bought your Camp Chef... Thanks in Advance

            I named it Knucklehead John, but after it turned 18 it had it’s own name changed to Panhead John.

            WickerT I bought it direct from Camp Chef. I got a 25% discount on all accessories because of being a veteran. So I bought the basic 36" WW with Slide N Grill. Then I ordered both the Sidekick and the Deluxe BBQ Grill Box, the cover, the front shelf, 5 different bags of pellets and some grease buckets as accessories. The sidekick includes a nice cast iron griddle with a grease catcher. This is my 1st pellet pooper. It has been great! A great learning experience as well.

            As a fellow pelleteer, welcome to the club. I have a Recteq but that’s no never mind. The CC’s are great too from what I hear. Smoke on!! Glad to have you with us.

            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.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            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.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            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.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
