Hey Ken, I fired up my triton this morning with a meat medley rub. First of all I love this thing. It's just for me and my wife so the 3 burner gas side is great for quick meals with a grill skillet for indirect heat cooking, has a silent igniter that is quick, includes a match stick holder for manual lighting of the burner if necessary. Never saw one of these before but it's genius!. The wood side is direct with a levered coal tray for heat/sear control, I put my water pan on this) and I go for the indirect smoker box on the side. Here I add wood and chips. Another genius point is someone designed the side wood box with a lid and a grate on top. more searing and cooking. Brilliant! this things has wheels and rolls in and out of my garage so I can cook in my driveway. Today it is loaded with meat medley rubs: Datil chicken thighs, Southwest chile lime fresh turkey breast, Brazilian top sirloin roast, and Butt rub baby back ribs. Everything but the turkey was seared on the gas side before placing on the smoker. before everything is done I will add some canadian moose backstraps and cinnamon pineapple to the the grate atop the wood firebox. this grill was $299.00 + tank assembled and placed in my truck for me by acadamey sports. I keep it clean it has catch trays under each grill that I line with tin foil to help with clean up. This grill/smoker is a lot of fun. Cons; its big and requires space. Pros; cooks good, quick prep time to cook, rolls into place. Bottom storage table for asscessories, has "S" hooks to hold implements.
