  1. Great site; lots of great information.

    We’ve had a 22†Weber Kettle, Smokey Joe, and Char-Broil Water Smoker for many years. The smoker rusted out and we dumped the 22-incher for a Weber Genesis natural gas and the SJ is on loan to my father-in-law. I wish I’d kept the 22-incher for occasional use, but our deck is rather small.

    I’m looking to get another smoker (I’m not having much luck smoking with the Genesis). We’re planning on getting into RVing next year, so I’m considering getting the electric Rival for use at home and on the road. The search for information and opinions led me to this site, or should I say gold mine!

    BTW, do you smell smoke?


    p.s. Just noticed the helmets on the smilies...nice touch! [​IMG]

    Welcome to the SMF, curious about your handle, I've told a lot of people (OK Grunts) to "pop smoke" [​IMG]

    Cool, I been spending most of my time here lately learning to smoke, but I'm leaving on mine in the morning for a week, 37' Class A gasser with 3 slides
  10. We're looking at a Casita 17' TT. I'm interested in boondocking as much as possible. We're just arguing about the floor plan.

    On another site, someone posted a pic of a Class A pulling a Casita. I guess it was for the "help". [​IMG]

    Heya Pop! Welcome to SMF! There's alot of smoker info here, and since I would assume you have a little time before the next RV season, take advantage of it. Enjoy and Happy Trails!
  14. Will do, thanks.

    I was just looking at your menu for you bud's 50th. Clearly this site isn't all about "smoke". Good stuff!

    Heh...Thank ye kindly. Well, I DID sear the loins on a HOT charcoal grill, and the Hammy Sammies were smoked, of course, and the big wedge of Gouda as well. Boy that stuff is sooo good with some apple on it :{)

    Welcome Aboard Pat -

    Sounds like you've got alot going on. You might want to look into something small to hawl around like a ECB or a WSM with that RV.
  17. Thanks, Debi.

    That's why I was looking at the Rival electric (or any electric) so I wouldn't have to carry large bags of chunk charcoal. Of course, like dog food, I don't have to bring the whole 40 lb bag, so my options are still wide open. I'm wondering though, in "no open fire" areas, if the electric would still be a better choice.

    Well, technically, a smoker ain't an open fire, is it? Electric pulls some juice. And if you go to sites without it, would will be giving up maybe 25% of a 5KW generator to the smoker. just something to toss into the equation.

    Welcome to the forum, Pat. We're glad you're here! You're going to be torn between which you enjoy more......Rving or smoking. It's really nice when you can do them both at the same time! [​IMG]
  20. Tell that to my old deck. Those sparks did a job on it first time out. I've got an Ipe deck now.

    Good point. I've already got a genny, but listening to it for 8 to 12 hours, that's the last nail in the coffin on electric I guess.

    @ BA_LoKo

    Well, I've done lots of smoking in the past. Just looking to get a new smoker and get back in it. Being able to do both is an added pleasure.

    BTW, my past smoking was just the basic Turks, Chicks, and Pigs. I'm looking forward to doing some of the other stuff you guys are doing.
