    She said yes, but only if I add on to the deck and we stay here in California. Confounding woman!!

    Congrats and give the good lady my best wishes.
    Christmas is sure a wonderful time of the year when things like this are authorised.

      Well, except for that "staying in California" part. I was really looking forward to emigrating to America, but a LSG pellet pooper and dedicated outdoor cooking area should assuage my grief a bit. We do live in a little slice of Heaven here so it doesn't suck too badly!

    Congrats! She's definitely a keeper. The Great State of Jefferson is better than the bay area!
    Remind me which it is you're getting.

      I'll be shooting for the 42" pellet pooper to sort of match the LSG stick burner. With those 2 and the WSCG I will actually start to pare the collection down a little.

    Congrats, Cap'n! The new LSG and deck extension sound awesome ... and there are far worse places than deepest, darkest, Northern CA from which to enjoy them.

      I can't recall which member posted a pic of his LSG offset and pellet rig side by side, but it really caught my attention! Someone from FLA, I think.

    Forget the LSG, lets hear about the deck extension! From past photos your existing deck is already the size of a pocket aircraft carrier’s deck. Are you going to extend it to Oregon or Idaho? 🙂

      Hilarious!!! My deck is only 32' x 16', but looks bigger with the vaulted ceiling. The addition will be something like 15' x 10', so it is definitely growing. We were at some friend's house last Friday and they have a nice outdoor kitchen area that Collette and I really liked so we're making similar plans. Keeps me busy and out of trouble so I'm not complaining.

      Just think Mike, if y’all did move to Texas, you’d be that much closer to me! Tell Collette that, probably a big selling point.

      That's a great blessing to have and excited for you. Have you seen anything for information about the LSG pooper? I know there's several out there, but at least the forums have been pretty quiet for feedback on them.

        There's starting to be a bit of chat on the LSG FB page. Everyone that has one loves it. One fella posted today he couldn't tell the difference it makes on a brisket vs. his LSG offset. That's a pretty good comparison. Dang things ain't cheap, but it would be a pretty nice bookend for my offset with the WSCG sandwiched in between.

        Not even close, brother! She wants to work a few more years to bump her retirement up, and she has a pretty good gig out here.

      My LSG 20x36 pellet cooker has performed really well, even did an overnight brisket that the bark and flavor turned out fantastic. I have done a spatchcocked chicken and turkey, pork butts, spare ribs and salmon and all turned out very good. This cooker has really delivered. When I did the chicken and turkey I was pretty amazed to get smoke out of the stack with the temp set at 350....unheard of on a pellet grill. My old Rec Tec stopped getting smoke out of the stack around 250.

      If I ordered one again I would get the 12" wide front stainless steel shelf, the standard stainless one is 10". It is usable but the extra 2" would be a nice to have.

      I hear LSG is getting better at lead times too. Let me know if you have any questions.

      I ordered my 36" LSG pellet pooper on Sept. 3rd and I'm still waiting to hear that they have started building it. So, if you want it by spring, you best get hopping. That doesn't count the time I spent on the waiting list before I could even place the order. That added another three or four weeks.

      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.

      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.

      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’.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


      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. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
