    Yoder YS460 MCS won again

    Been thinking about replacing my almost never used gasser with a Yoder YS640 but not ready to spend the cash. As thing would have it I was browsing adds in a local classified website and there was a great deal on a nice YS480. Decided I should take a look and of course MCS has too much power over the weak. I'm now an owner of a YS480 and my son now has a nice gas grill.

    Congratulations. You are going to love it. It’s a tank and performs like sports sedan. Never have regretted getting mine.

          Funny thing I wasn't even thinking pellet but when I saw Chef Tom on All Things BBQ YouTube showing how you can convert this puppy into a sear machine and the temps he was getting got me interested. Also it's a tank!

        Nice pick up. Enjoy it.


          Congrats! Another pellet pooper in da house!


            You will not regret this decision. I haven’t.👍


              Score! Congrats on the new rig, brother!


                Enjoy! Congratulations!


                  Congrats on the score.




                      Great find! But do you mean a YS480? Or is that an earlier model?


                      Congrats! Personally I find a pellet cooker to be a worthy upgrade from a gas grill. Downside is they need electricity, but upside is how flexible and convenient they are like a gasser, but with a thermostat.

                        Huskee You are correct flexibility is why I decided to go with a Yoder. I like the light smoke flavor I get along with its ability to do what my gasser would.

                      All right now, congrats on your pickup.

                      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. 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.

                      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.
