    Brisket/Burnt Ends - Okay to rest point for a while before cubing?

    I plan to do a packer brisket on my new YS640S this weekend and want to do burnt ends with the point. Since I have a lot of different things that I'll be smoking for a 6pm dinner time on Saturday, I was thinking of smoking the brisket over-night (starting Friday night), and resting in the...

    GMG Daniel Boone issues

    Thanks for all the replies. Support confirmed that I need a new hopper fan, but it doesn't look like they're sending me a complimentary one. Went and bought a YS640S this weekend. I'm so excited to load that 350 lbs beast up this weekend, I almost can't stand it. Good luck to those...

    GMG Daniel Boone issues

    Thanks for the quick replies. ostrichsak, I appreciate your response, although it does make me a little discouraged. RichardFoster, I mainly use CookinPellets mixed pellets, because those seem to get good ratings. I've never had a problem with them bridging before now, so I'm not sure it's...

    GMG Daniel Boone issues

    My wife bought me a Daniel Boone back in 2015 because they were considered one of the better pellet smokers. This model came with WIFI, which I didn't think was a big deal until I used it. It's definitely a nice add-on, but has never really worked well on mine, even with good strong wifi...

    Foil grease tray on GMG Daniel Boone?

    The only thing I don't really like about my GMG Daniel Boone pellet smoker is cleaning off the cast iron grease tray. Maple syrup drippings in particular can become so melded onto the tray that I can't even scrape it off with a steel putty knife. I tried laying some foil on it the last time I...

    Thinner pork butt

    Thanks for the responses guys. I threw them in at 8 this morning. Hoping to eat at 4pm. Unless i hit a nasty stall, it should be okay. I'll probably be foiling them to push them through. Thanks again!

    Thinner pork butt

    A buddy of mine bought a 7 lbs butt at a local butcher that he has asked me to smoke. When I got it out to look at it tonight, it's actually two pieces of butt. One is about 4 lbs and the other 3 lbs. They're fairly wide and long, but only about 3" thick. He wants pulled pork, so I'll...

    Anyone here own a Green Mountain pellet grill?

    I've had my GMG Daniel Boone model for less than a year, and used it multiple times.  Yesterday's smoke I saw a huge variance in temps.  The smoker was set to 225 with a 6 lbs pork butt put in at 8am.  When I got home from church at noon and checked the Maverick remote, it said it was 280* in...

    FINISHING SAUCE (for Pulled Pork)

    How long will this sauce keep?  I made some at Easter and have half-a-bottle left, which has been sitting in the fridge ever since.  Think it's still good enough to use?

    Initial Setup and Using the Masterbuilt Vertical Propane Smoker

    Mike: I've found that temp regulation is the most frustrating thing with these MB propane models.  If yours is like mine, there's some play in the control knob, which makes it hard to know where to set the dial to hit that sweet spot that you're looking for.  Outside temp plays a role in this...

    Re-use Sand in water pan?

    I've been using sand in my water pan since sometime last year.  I cover it with HD foil, and Sunday, while I was throwing out the foil that was covering it for the smoke, and replacing it with new, I noticed that the sand was a little hard in places.  I've been just leaving the same sand in the...

    Initial Setup and Using the Masterbuilt Vertical Propane Smoker

    For all of you Maverick ET-732 / Masterbuilt Vertical smoker users: I'm interested to hear where people are clipping the temp probe for the smoker itself.  I've tried several positions, but seem to get the most accurate readings clipping it underneath the center of the top rack.  That rack...

    Initial Setup and Using the Masterbuilt Vertical Propane Smoker

    If you use the cast iron pan method instead of the stock crappy chip pan, do you have to season the new pan?  If so, how?
