    Grilla vs Rec Tec vs ???

    I get more visible and smoke flavor with my Savannah Stoker PID than I ever did with the factory controller. It has temp swings built in so you get the smoldering smokey pellets. I get just as much smoke flavor with my PID controller as I do with my Oklahoma Joe stick burner. Not all PIDs are...

    Looking into getting a pellet cooker. Suggestions welcome

    The sear station on the PitBoss does work. My wife likes her hot dogs burned black on the outside. I cook them normal on the parts of the grill away from the sear station. When they are done I move hers over the open fire and in a few seconds (ok maybe a couple of minutes) they are black like...

    Pellets in the Dallas area

    If you have any HEB grocery stores up there they carry B&B Pellets. I get their OAK Pellets at my HEB for 11.95 per 20 lb bag.

    Question about Pit Boss (specifically 700sc) or any missing 275.

    Here is what I paid for mine. Your pit would require the Offset Box. Mine did and it made the install super easy. You might want to check out this link. I have pictures of the controller and how it looks with the offset box...

    Question about Pit Boss (specifically 700sc) or any missing 275.

    I don't have that model Pit Boss but I have the 820D model. The stock controller was the same as what you are describing. It went from a 250 setting then the next setting was 300. The P settings only really help you in the smoke setting. I never found a way to achieve 275 with that controller. I...

    controller recomendations

    Here is some info from their website: Plug and Cook easy installation on most Traeger Pellet Grills. You’ll be cooking in 10 minutes when using the existing temperature senor “RTD” and 30 minutes when replacing it. 1° Temperature Setting Range from 150°- 500°F. Note: Your Grill may not be able...

    controller recomendations

    I'll have to second the Savannah Stoker controller. I have it in a Pit Boss 820D and it made my pit act like one of the big boys. Just half the cost.. lol It is a great controller.

    Pork Ribs - Favorite Temperature for smoking

    On my Pitboss I smoke my baby backs for 2 hours at 180 degrees. Then I bump it up to 225 until the ribs are done. This leaves a killer smoke ring and a great smoke taste. I use B&B Oak pellets. These are 100% oak pellets.
