    I had issues with their probes too. They replaced the one I got and that still didn’t work. I would literally unplug the probe that went into the grill and then ply it into my thermoworks chef alarm and it would readjust to the correct temp. Very strange. For whatever reason is never went about 140. I emailed them and they had me put it in a cup of ice water then plug it in which seemed to work and I haven’t had an issue since.

    Quick update, so far the OG has been a beast, love it. One complaint, the meat probe is off a solid 20 degrees from my thermapen which makes me wonder about the ambient temp probe, will need to throw my smoke/signals in there soon to check.

    I'm a rank beginner (I've done just nine smokes thus far, not counting batches of bacon) so I have no basis for comparison between various smoker types. But I settled on a vertical pellet smoker (Pit Boss Copperhead 5) when diving in to the world of smoking meat. Before I became a full-time bureaucrat, in my lab science career I did high-temperature and -pressure experimentation (simulating how planets work on the inside), and in that game the ability to consistently impose uniform conditions that can be precisely controlled is paramount. In researching the various options, it was an absolute no-brainer for me to go that direction and I'm delighted I did. I would get really frustrated really quickly if I had to be futzing with the fire to maintain temp.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.

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.

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


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.
