Davy Crockett Reviews


Top of the Mountain ( pun intended)


Pros: Ease of use, spot on temps, well built, Outstanding customer service

Cons: nothing on its cook ability, but I would like to see bigger wheels on it, to make it more maneuverable

The family got this for me for a birthday gift ( I chose it, they paid for it). I did not get the WIFI version. Got it home, assembled it (easy) and fired it up.

Temp held plus or minus 3 degrees all the way thru the process.   Absolutely no hesitation recommending this to anyone that wants a smaller portable smoker.   Here is the rib recipe:   Category: PorkRibs Ingredients:  1 tablespoon fresh cracked Black Pepper  1 tablespoon Onion Powder  1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder  1/2 teaspoon cumin  1/2 teaspoon dry Mustard powder  1/2 teaspoon smoked Paprika (or regular paprika if unavailable)  1/4 cup Franks Red Hot or similar  1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg  2 racks of baby back pork ribs...
