True. a little bit more expensive. Ive done some on a gas grill that are premarinated by Hormel. I know what ur thinking... Hormel?? yes thats right.. before you judge em, u gotta try these things their unbelievable.. And for about 6 bucks, well worth it. Im gunna try smoking one with two birds for fathers day, oughta feed nine people pretty well dont u think?
