Just purchased this unit a few weeks ago have only used it 3 time and just the love the way to cooks. Real easy to keep temps and the smoke box is huge.
This is my first smoker and I've had some great success with it already. It was pretty easy to get some good results even on my first runs. I switched from chips to chunks for the wood and it...

Simply the best. The Bentley of all grills and it's the only ceramic grill made in the USA. The 400XL will smoke two 20 pound turkeys.
The smoker came packaged very nicely and easy to assemble. The construction of it is pretty solid. I have used it twice so far and both times the smoker itself was good. I did put on a gasket...

Totally love spatchcocked yardbird. Fell in love with it after trying it out...pretty simple once you do it once, you are on it. Cut out the spine, slice cartilage and breastbone, I slice the bird in half, EVOO and rub, bone down and go to town. Juiciest bird I have ever made.post #3 of 86/12/10 at 7:43ampost #4 of 86/15/10 at 6:54pmpost #5 of 86/15/10 at 6:58pm
And if you are grilling it how long might you grill one over direct heat? I don't plan on smoking the bird on the grill this weekend (wife doesn't like the smoke, I know she's crazy...) so why do indirect right?post #6 of 86/15/10 at 7:27pmpost #7 of 86/16/10 at 12:37pmQuote:
I did my first one last night right over the flames. I rubbed it the night before with some extra under the breast skin, then fired up the grill (gas, medium heat) until it read about 350. Put it breast down on the grill for about 10 mins and it got nice and brown with some good char marks. flipped it over, put some butter under the breast skin and mopped it with a bit of cider vin, AJ, and brown sugar. Turned the heat down after another 10 and let it go for about 15 more mins. some of the most perfectly done chicken Ive ever had.post #8 of 81/11/11 at 5:14am
I haven't done mine over direct heat, I use my Traeger 075 for just about everything. I do have a Kamado Joe now, so I have been playing with indirect and direct heat for sear and char lately. Nothing is as juicy as a smoked spatch though, thinking about spatching a turkey this weekend.
