    Gator Pit Texas Edition or RT-1250 or update controller

    From all the reports the Lone Star Grillz is superior to other pellet grills for smoke flavor. The only problem is they have a long waiting list, so if you need something fairly soon they may not be a great choice.

    Turkey Availability!

    I have read all about the supposed turkey shortage this year and, at least in my area, it isn't happening. I just got my turkeys for $0.39lb, with plenty of selection, at Publix. Food Lion also had plenty of turkey's for $0.33lb but you had to buy $35 in groceries to get that price. There wasn't...

    Buying a chain saw

    I got the EGO 18" saw this year and have been really impressed with it. I already am invested in the EGO line of yard tools and the Milwaukee M18 Fuel tools, so it was very hard to choose which to go with but finally decided on the EGO. It is so nice...

    Air tight pellet storage - Gamma 2 screw-down lids leak

    I agree with bregent, I keep mine in the original bags stacked in my garage and have never had any problems. I think the moisture situation is a little overblown with good quality pellets. I don't empty the hopper in my Timberline 1300 between cooks and with 3 grills and a griddle, it can be a...

    Loosing Integrity Of The Forum

    I have not been here long enough to be considered and old timer but I have been here for a while. I have also noticed the social media style change in the forum. That is why I don't post much anymore, If I have something informative to say on a topic, that hasn't already been said, I will post...

    Pay to shop preferences, BJ's or Costco

    I have both BJ's and Costco memberships. I have had a Costco membership for over 30 years, from back when they were called Price Club. BJ's is much closer to me now, so I shop there more than at Costco but I still hit there every couple weeks. Like others have said I have the Costco CC and get...

    size matters? 18"vs 22"

    How many do you usually cook for? The Classic will handle enough for 5, or 6 , easily in a pinch but if you usually cook for that many and could also use extra capacity for special occasions, then spend the extra for the Big Joe. I have had my BJ for many years now and I have never regretted...

    Now what?

    You will never get strong smoke flavor from a pellet grill. I have a Traeger Timberline 1300 and I am very happy with it but it puts out a lighter cleaner smoke flavor than a stick burner, or a charcoal grill does. I think the better the quality of pellets used makes a bigger difference than the...

    Anyone have a standby generator at the house?

    I would believe anything coming from CA these days.

    Anyone have a standby generator at the house?

    I live in VA and in my area we get outages frequently, so I have a 17KW propane powered, I have a 500 gal buried tank for the house heating, Generac generator set up to power most of my house during a power failure. I can't imagine living without it and highly recommend having backup power for...

    Cuisinart Clermont Review

    You should check out the Pitts & Spitts grills. They have a roll top lid that would be very easy to use, with just an grabber tool, from a wheel chair. The P&S is also an excellent quality grill.

    Cuisinart Clermont Review

    Unfortunately you are never going to get a lot of smoke flavor from a pellet grill, it's just not inherent in the technology. There are some pellet grills that do a decent job and you can get a smoker tube too add a little more flavor but looking at the design of that grill, I just don't see...

    Poor Start with a Cookshack PG500 Fast Eddie

    Cookshack website says the grills are nickel plated, I don't know how you missed that during your research. I agree at this price point they should be SS. Good luck with learning the grill, maybe you will start to enjoy it better.

    Observation about LJ pellets

    Thanks but I have loaded up on the Cooking Pellets, so it will be a while before I have to get any more pellets of any kind.

    Observation about LJ pellets

    I have always used LJ for obvious reasons but the only place to get them, in my area, is Dick's and I refuse to deal with them. To go online for pellets LJ is just too expensive for smaller orders. I ordered some Cooking Pellets based on reviews but haven't run out of my LJ pellets, so I...

    Tappecue AirProbe

    For me, it's not worth the trouble to try and return it and no I haven't reached out to them. I just chalked it up to experience trying a new unproven product.

    Tappecue AirProbe

    I also decided to give it a try and ordered one. I tried mine out on two different cooks, on my Timberline and my Big Joe and I am very disappointed with it. I have the original Meater and primarily ordered this one for the supposed extended Bluetooth range. Maybe mine is a defective unit but it...

    Fireboard 2 Drive

    I received my Fireboard 2 today and so far I am impressed. Very solid feeling unit, well designed and packaged. I ordered an extra pro short and long temp probe, just to see how much smaller they were, along with the angled base. It couldn't be any easier to setup, compared the the nightmare...
