    Removing the finger guard is about the only key tip. If you have food safe silicone spray, you can lube the ramps a little too. Make sure the firmware is up to date before using it.

      When smoking fatty hunks like pork shoulder, place a disposable foil pan on the flavorizer bars. Standard size pans are just a tiny bit too big and the cooking grates butt up against them. No prob though because all you have to do is push down on the cooking grates and the pan will fit fine.

        Did you ever do a prime rib on your SF?

        Probably cheaper than using the Wet Smoke oans too.

              Good on you. MCS has been satisfied, but 2022 is on a couple of weeks away.

                    So far, I regret it. Cannot figure out how the flavorizor bars fit, it comes with 6 but can't get them all to fit. It won't stay connected to the app. The shutdown procedure seems to be a cycle that never ends. Tried calling weber but that's like calling butterball on thanksgiving.

                    The positive is that this thing is built like a tank and the design is solid. I'm just irritated that the interface is soooo bad. I am in IT professional. I evaluate and buy/don/t buy a lot of things and this just does not make the grade.

                      They do have a digital assembly manual in Bilt that might help with the flavorizer bars. It’s been almost a year so details are fading. I don’t remember how long the shutdown ran. The flavorizer bars should have obvious locations, but the brackets that hold them might have been odd to first get right? Also an IT professtional, the tech is what made me return it, I’ve dealt with too many vendors once proven that clueless at something in software take ages to figure it out or never do.

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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.
