What brand is the smoker?



Weber. Smokey Mountain ala 1999ish.

Holds up to a 28lb turkey on top (if you curl the cooking trays) and/or 20-22lb ham or Turkey on the inner part.

If I use the water tray it adds to the cooking time but softens the meat. I usually take out the water tray for the last 2 hours and stoke the fire to crisp the skin and them lather it with butter to give it the dark brown color I like. I think you could save some bones getting a used one. It's pretty sturdy and besides maybe changing the meat thermometer it's good to go. I had a car back into this and it left a really tiny dent..the mark on the car was bigger so I was fine.

Oh man, those things are freakin awesome.  My parents have one (roughly same year), but they never use the dang thing anymore. Said I could have it whenever I want.

Only one big problem; I'd have to drive to NC to pick it up.  Not interested in a 1600 mile round trip just for a smoker.

Does anyone have a Traeger Wood Pellet Grill?  Thing is freaking awesome. I got one last year for Fathers Day. You can't mess anything up on it and everything turns out perfect.

I just paid  500 for the shaved ice machine and with the purchase of the generator I can now make shaved ice anywhere anytime. Industrial grade. I can make 100 in a row without heat issues. I'm having a BBQ next month and this ...this is gonna help ;D

Hey how often do you guys buy new grates? Mine don't look so great after about 2 years.   I did a lot of stuff with it this year. Venison. Linguica. Swordfish. Tuna. Donuts. Fruit. Sweet potato puffs.  Pork Chops. Steak medalions. Lamburgers.

I use cast iron. They require a good scrubbing with salt and oil once a season, but are practically eternal.

I've gone back and forth.  I need a smoker of some kind, and I know the WSM is about as good as it gets if you're talking about spending a couple/three hundred bucks. 

But, I've got a friend who swears by his (similarly-priced) electric smoker - which is electric, but that means he can cold-smoke his own bacon for 12 hours or whatever it needs with essentially no work.  Remote-controlled, even!  I also love making beer and drinking smoked beers, and being able to cold-smoke (~120=ish) is ideally for smoking barley malt.
