    Yoder YS1500s orange competition cart

    Been waiting 4 months for my new cooker 😀 🙏. Currently on back order from Sam’s Northwest BBQ. Any advice from current owners before I pick this bad boy up?

      When are you expecting to pick it up!

      Not sure what you are cooking on now or what experience you have with pellet cookers. So I'll wait to offer advice until I know better what you are asking for.

        Not sure when it’s going to arrive. Was supposed to be on truck #8 and only 20+ YS640’s arrived (not the 5 YS1500’s). He has trucks scheduled for the next few months so hopefully it’ll be on one of them. 😀

      Don't expect stickburner or even charcoal taste is my biggest piece of advice. But man are they handy and do they offer a whole new slew of cooking options for things you might not want a really thick smoke flavor on, like lasagna, pies, veggies, burgers, nachos, fish, etc.

        Congratulations, that is one heck of a smoker. One thing I did on my 640 when I got it was the white bread toast test and that helped me visualize all the temperature variations on the grates.

          Great recommendation. Just be sure to the test on the upper shelf also. I found the hotest areas were lower left (by the burn pot) and upper right (by the chimney exit). I set my damper out about 6-7 inches (and just left it there) and got fairly even temps. If in doubt, I flipped end
          to end during the cook. Always put the thickest piece facing the hot end. Others may be able to give you their advice on setting the damper and placing meat.

                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.

                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.

                Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                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’.
