    The Beauty of a Pellet grill

    The "set it and almost forget it" function of a pellet grill can make your day.
    Sunday is our Sunday-goto Meeting day on Zoom 10-12, and I wanted to smoke three racks of ribs.
    7:30 rib prep
    9:20 pressed start on Pellet grill
    9:45 ribs on and smoking
    meeting time
    12:45 wrap ribs
    2:00 unwrapped and sauced
    2:45 ribs-b-done
    Potato Salad for the side
    Bartered 1, 1/2 racks for 4lbs of Whiskey Pulled Pork.
    Mama, son, and I went for our 2-mile walk.
    It was a bright sunny day in the neighborhood.
    I truly hope your weekend was just as fun if not more so.

    Happy Grilling to you.

    So when did PBR fit in with all of this?

      Max Good I checked all the stores and unfortunately could not find Miller High Life Lite. I'll keep looking but I think it's probably a regional thing.

      I f you have a fav liquids store, ask them to bring some in for you. If you like PBR, as I do, I bet you'll go for MHLL!

    That’s a perfect example of why I love my pellet smoker too. So easy and reliable to produce great Q. Thx for sharing.


      So true, I smoked a pork shoulder today in my charcoal vertical smoker and had to babysit it due to the weather. My first words when my wife asked how it was going was " I should have cooked it in the pellet grill". Love my pellet grill.

        I do love my PP er.. pooper... um.. Camp Chef DLX24. Yeah, that's it.


          Pellet grills are great. I tell all my friends that have no clue on how to manage a fire to buy one. I tell them their a step up from a easy bake oven. How can you go wrong - just plug and play.

          The guys (two of them) have been very happy with their purchases (Tragear & Rec Tec). Another friend, his wife bought him a 22” WSM, is a bit scared of it. His first smoke was a 26 lb turkey on Thanksgiving . Let’s just say it was a bit overwhelming.

            26 lb for first attempt? Wow. Did any of them live?

            HawkerXP - Yes, they lived and nobody got sick. I saw a pic of of the turkey. It was as black as night.

          I love my pellet pooper, but my WSCG will do that too.

            Other than start up time I agree, my WSCG is just as hands free and stable on temps once it’s going as any pellet grill I’ve had.

          If you want more smoke check out smoke daddy’s heavy D heat diffuser. It replaces the original. Put this 1 in it’s place and add wood to each side of the diffuser. Just got my new smoke daddy 1190 with it and it produces quite a bit of smoke.

          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.

          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          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.
