    Z-Grills

    They have actually been around for a while, building grills for the likes Traeger and others before they decided to market grills under their own name. Found mainly in big box stores they get okay reviews on Amazon and others. Not a high end grill by any means but if they fit your budget, they...

    2 spatchcocked chickens - what sort of timeframe am I looking at?

    Spatchcocked whole chickens you should be able to do in a couple hours. Certainly less than the 4 hours you have allotted. I would actually smoke them a bit hotter, 275 or so. Should be done 2 to 2.5 hours. Your mileage may vary of course.

    smoker question on "type " of smoke

    You are correct: if you are getting a thick white smoke, that is not good. It indicates incomplete combustion and the addition of lots of off flavors and other nasty things. You should shoot for a thin blue smoke for the best flavor. You need to ensure you have good air supply for you fire in...

    New Smokin-It Model 3.5

    Congrats on your new smoker. Wish I could be there to try some of you initial PP pizza. That sounds great. I also believe you'll be super happy with your SmokinIT smoker. I have an older SmokinIt model 2 that I still use....A LOT. You are correct, the build quality is amazing for the price...

    Fragmented or ground jerky question

    I've made quite a bit of both "types" of jerky. That made from ground beef is good, just different from whole muscle jerky. I'll let you come up with your own recipe, but here are some "guidelines" that I use. I tend to use 95% lean to 5% fat. After mixing up using your favorite recipe, put it...

    Rib rubs

    I fall squarely in SmokinAl's camp, I use the same rub on (almost) everything. BUT, it really boils down to what do you like best?

    Sourdough Rye

    Big fan of sourdough and make it nearly weekly myself. I have to say that I'm envious of your open crumb, something that consistently eludes me. Your loaf looks amazing.

    Anybody Wanna Make Some Smoked Fire Roasted Salsa? (W Pics)

    Thanks so much for sharing. Love salsa, but the one time I tried making my own a few years back it was, well, not very good to put it nicely. I am definitely going to give this a try.

    Louisiana Estate 860BI

    No doubt you do get a stronger smoke flavor from your Kamodo than your Louisiana grill. That said, there are some things you can do with your pellet grill to increase the smoke flavor. You could use one of the AMAZIN Pellet products to augment your smoke. You could smoke at a lower temp for the...

    Smoked Chicken Empanadas

    Wanted to try something completely different (for me) utilizing some left overs. I found some smoked chicken in the freezer from last fall. I do like Mexican food and was trying to think of something I hadn't done before. Let's see: Nachos (done that), burritos (done that), enchiladas (done...
