    pellets from amazon

    Todd's pellets are great for the tray or tube but not economical for a pellet smoker at almost $60 per 40lbs. The pitboss I use produce very little ash.

    pellets from amazon

    I used to always order cookin pellets from amazon when they were consistently around $30 for a 40lb bag and now they are closer to $40. I have since switched to pitboss 40lb bags of the comp blend and haven't noticed any difference other than paying half the price from Lowes.

    PitBoss pellets?

    I use the Pitboss comp blend primarily in my Rec Tec....can't beat the price 40lb bags $14.99 at Lowes all the time. Decent smoke, low ash and burn great.

    Electric smoker and gas grill or pellet smoker?

    I also have both. The Rec Tec rt680 which can smoke and grill just fine but its a time thing for me. I just went out and bought a Weber Genesis gasser for better sears and quicker cooking of things like burgers/dogs/chicken

    What Should I Sous Vide First?

    I'd also keep it simple. Get some NY Strips...season them...bag them...and cook at 132 for 1.5-2 hours then sear in a hot cast iron pan or grill.

    American Waygu Porterhouse recipe help

    I now sous vide all of my steaks then sear in a cast iron grill pan directly on top of my charcoal chimney starter and they come out amazing. Except for rib eyes. I do not like the way they come out after their bath. I do think 131/132 is too high for "ultra rare" you would be looking at...

    [Recommendation] Insulated Hot food / glove that are pliable - to handle food

    I use a pair of these. They work great for picking up pork butts and other food off the smoker.

    How do you keep it clean?

    I remember seeing a review of a grill mat on amazon and the person showed pics of when they moved it after some time the Trex decking was totally stained from it and they were unable to get the stain out. So just be careful when buying one.

    [Stupid] GREAT! Question

    I take them out and powerwash a few times a year. It really gets them clean.

    Im hooked!!

    I received a sous vide for Christmas and used it for the first time tonight. I bought 2 NY strip roasts on sale for $3.99/LB. Smoked one on xmas day and cut this one into steaks. Set the temp at 129 and cooked for almost 2 hours. A quick sear on the grill after. These we probably the best...

    Rec Tec or Grilla?

    I clean out my pellet grill about every 40lbs of pellets...From what I have read that seems about the best time frame.

    New home for the smoker

    New home for the smoker

    Pellet Grill shopping

    Yes...alot.  Nothing better than being able to throw a butt on before bed set the temp to 225 and not worry for a second about the cook.  40lb hopper is great...No need to worry about running out.  It also is very economical with pellet usage only about a pound an hour at 225-250 temp range...
